Drive Me Wild


This little gadget from Amacom is pretty cool. The FlipDisk looks kind of like a communicator from the original Star Trek. The PCMCIA connector is hinged to the drive. You just flip it out and plug it into an open slot. A range of hard-drive sizes is available, starting at $350 for a 2.1GB, up to $730 for a 10GB-a savings of more than $150 over the 10GB Microtech PortableDrive. An 18GB is also available for $830. The ingenious design means no cables to tangle with, and it's fairly lightweight at just over 11 ounces.
