    I don't know if anyone has posted this yet, but look at Lacie's new series of hard drives. I though they were into making cool, sleek looking hard drives. Seriously, what were they thinking. 6 year olds don't need 250gb hard drives :)

    You'd be the coolest guy in the office if you could build a fort out of your externals. Well, I'd envy the pants off you.

    That doesn't appeal to me. I guess it does to someone, but it's not me (or you, apparently :))

    Holy Capacitors, that was funny! Now many I can get that chick from Accounting to come up to my cubicle..

    I don't think I would ever buy one, but I don't really think they are horrible, either...

    They kinda look cool to some people, i for one will not be getting it but if i was in the market for an external HD i would probebly get it. Its one of thoes things that people stop and look at.

    I want one. They're stackable! If I could buy about 500 I'd have the most awesome Lego building ever.

    I like the design of those. Will I buy one probably not since it does not match anything in my setup. Maybe in the future when I redo my setup I will definitely take another look at those things.

    The thing I find attractive about them is they don't look like external hard drives. Kind of like the Godzilla FireWire hub.

    At least it's USB 2.0.. it'll shed chick cooties at a theoretical 400Mbps.
