Logitec portable drive

Japan's Logitec has introduced a new line of portable hard drives called the Precious. Encased in steel, users can format each drive with a secret partition that is completely inaccessible without both a password and a specific piece of software, according to Electronista. The Precious also includes a button for quickly unmounting a drive from Windows or Mac OS X, as well as an idling mode that saves power when connected to a laptop. Shutters protect the USB 2.0 connection from damage, and three sizes of the Precious are due to launch beginning in mid-January with 80GB ($135), 120GB ($205), and 160GB ($270) storage capacities.
