Check this out. A portable handheld 20GB hard drive for sharing files on a wireless network. Nice.

I'd always dismissed the wireless iPod rumors as nonsense.

    ....even more interesting is that a 7 foot 5 inch basketball player is the one modeling the thing. Can't wait to take that skiing! Have to put it in my back-pack instead of my front pocket though.

    Kind of bizarre. It says 20GB but the specs say that only 17GB are available for users. It is a Linux server with a WI-FI card stuck on it.



    If you look around the Japanese site you can find a flash animation about why you would use it. The gist of it is that this is a way to circumvent the IT people who block you from accessing your company server from outside the firewall.



    Why is this better than a simple portable FW HD?



    Or as pointed out above, just carry your laptop.



    It is kind of itneresting but I don't see the crying need it serves.

    It says round about $585 plus $60 for the cradle.
