MorseCode Drive...

posted by Scott Roche

I saw this little bugger



and given the name had to post about it here. In today's security para... conscious world you need to protect your data from the gov... evil people that may want to use it against you. On the hard drive's top is a keypad that let's you set and input a four digit PIN that locks/unlocks the drive. Plug it in to your USB port and you're ready to go.

The best part is since the thing isn't dependent on some buggy OS or piece of software it should be reasonably secure, for at least the next ten minutes. It comes in size from 128mb to 2 gigs and is USB 2.0 compliant (that means it's pretty fast). If you put things like Portable Firefox and Portable Open Office on it and you can carry your PC in your pocket. Walk up to any Windows machine, enter your PIN, do your business, unplug and walk away.

I think so too. I think I'm gonna write up something tomorrow about sold state hard drives like this one and how they will be replacing regular hd's in the very near future.
