We can't say we've ever felt the pressing need to save time and download energy by buying our external storage and digital movies at the same time, but Seagate's latest FreeAgent Go offers just that simplicity.  The 500GB USB 2.0 portable hard-drive comes preloaded with twenty different feature-films, although you don't actually get them included in the purchase price; instead, Seagate - and Paramount Pictures, who they've partnered with for this - allow you to pick which titles to unlock, charging you between $9.99 and $14.99 for each one.
