When Hard Drives Learn to Think for Themselves

Take a look at this product description for a new hard drive model set to be released by LaCie (link via):

User Benefits:

- Play back movies, music and photos on any TV

- Hi-Speed USB powered to store, backup and archive data

- Portable entertainment center for family, friends, or traveling

- Easy on-TV-screen navigation with user-friendly remote control

- Ultra-quiet, pocket-sized, light-weight and slim design

Wait is that a TiVo? Or a jukebox? Or a photo library?

If your hard drive learns to think, it changes everything.
