Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

WD's My Passport Essential: now in colour

When Apple launched its selection of coloured iMacs back in 1999 it suggested - not entirely touch in cheek, we suspect - that Mac fans could collect the entire set of five machines.

WD didn't make the same proposal, but we can see some punters choosing a set of drives colour-coded by content. Back-up Blue, Media Mauve, Photos Pink, Tax Return Red, Pr0n Purple, anyone?

Available now in the UK and the US, the 320GB, USB-connected and bus-powered My Passport retails for around £120/$180, no matter what colour you choose. 160GB and 250GB versions are also available, priced at £67/$120 and £97/$150, respectively.
