Finally, hard drives have cottoned on to the whole personalization deal and realized that color choices are not enough. Seagate's Pimp My Drive initiative is partnering with MusicSkins to offer vinyl skins to dress up your storage drive, just like notebooks and handsets.

There's a bounty of skins--about 161--to pick from at MusicSkin's Seagate page, for what seems to be $20 each. Or you can get a skin from the cryptkeeper when you're buying a FreeAgent Go drive. From Bob Marley to John Lennon to Adult Swim and even personal photos and images, the good thing is these skins are removable so you can always indulge in a different custom look anytime.

But if you're feeling cheap or creative, or both, you can always do it yourself. Just remember that hard drives get hot with use, and that homebrewed adhesive may well go from pimp to limp.
