Harddrive with a Trackpad Concept

So we've got a concept here, and it's branded LaCie, but that's almost certainly just added in post-production by the designer André Silva. This is what he calls LaCie Float, a harddrive whose bulk not only appears to float above the ground because of its slightly smaller glass base, but has a strange feature on top of that, too.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5TB totes USB 3.0

Seagate has updated its FreeAgent GoFlex external HDD range with the industry's first 1.5TB portable external drive.  Entirely bus-powered - and so requiring no dual-USB cable or PSU - the new GoFlex comes as standard with the company's USB 3.0 adapter, which is also backward compatible with USB 2.0.
