Apple's 2011 MacBook Pro laptops have been on the market for several months now, and there's one port that has resolutely refused to be used in the way it's intended.

LaCie CloudBox Combines External Hard Drive And The Cloud, Arriving July

LaCie is known for their sleek storage devices and today they're announcing a new hybrid solution that marries an external hard drive to the cloud.
