A business-card size (holder) hard drive

At 80GB, this portable drive holds as much as the 320 256MB you have lost in the last year.

Will external hard drives ever become a fashion accessory? Seagate Technologies released its FreeAgent line of drives, complete with clever packaging, earlier this year.

Now, Samsung is going to give it a shot. Later this year, the South Korean electronics giant will release that thing in the picture. It's an 80GB 1.8 inch drive in a package that's about the size of a business card holder. The cover is grooved like an album, and it feels sort of cool.

No word on pricing yet, but the company will try to bring it out for under $200. Capacity is always going up too on drives so consumers will get more for their money as time goes on.
