    How about not just sized blocks but colored too... perhaps even customizeable?
    JPGs as red, MP3s as green, office files as blue, etc. Then you would have both sizes of and type of files.

    At least it's somewhat practical. I wonder if it's being driven by some variation of KDirStat/WinDirStat/Disk Inventory X...

    The visualisation itself reminds me of Spacemonger, which is particularly handy in finding out what's filling up your disk, or exactly which user thinks that a 40Gb of mp3's is ok to keep in their home drive.

    Much better...

    This drive could be good, so long as you don't have to install any software.

    I'm somewhat sceptical.

    Yes, it sounds cool, looks cool, and doubtlessly would be cool.

    But does anyone else remember the Optimus Maximus keyboard?

    If this doesn't go that way, then hell yes I'll buy one.

    That's neato :) I don't think having a display that is constantly on would be a good idea though.. Just when the device is connected! I'd buy a portable HDD like that :D

    To me a simple label works better and is cheaper.

    Yeah, remember when we did that for 1.44MB floppy diskettes? I mean, how many sticker labels can we honestly reapply on those things to tell us what's on them.... until they jam the drive.

    Super COOl

    Super Cool? Yes.

    But will it blend?

    With me black/Gray/White laptop? Or my manly-ness?? :eyebrow: No, I am afraid not.


    But freakin cool!
    Post something when they have the colors right, and I will be first in line.

    5/5
