Why it’s cool: Because people are paranoid about their data being compromised while on-the-go. $150 for 160GB rides the high-end of the price curve, it should be noted, so you’ll really need to place a premium on data security to fully appreciate the drive. It’s pretty shiny, though. Still, shiny = cool, right?
