Default Pocket hard drive

How cool is this? Western Digital has launched a pocket size USB powered portable hard drive with 6 GB of storage capacity. The Passport Pocket measures 0.37x2.41x1.8 inches and weighs 0.1 pound.

The 3,600 rpm disk has a 2 MB buffer, average latency of 8.3 ms and read seek time of 11 ms. It includes a rotating USB connector and rubberized sleeve for additional protection. It cost like $129. Who needs those thumb drives when you can have this bad boy? So cheap too for 6GB. It's already out of stock, lol.
