Picked up one of the little SmartDisk Firelites (80 gigs)a couple days ago. Really cool! Small and very portable. I can keep ALL my pics close at hand conveniently now without having them actually ON my company laptop. Plus, another place to have everything backed up. Having lost a big 20 meg hard drive back in 1990 in a disk crash, I've become a backup freak. Even though I also have everything on another external hard drive and on DVDs, I think I'm about finished with the tedious backup on CDs or DVDs. Thumb drives and bigger external hard drives are just too easy and relatively inexpensive for what we get. I love 'em! For what it's worth.
