Samsung preps Wacko Jacko movie hard drive

Film pre-loaded on HDD

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Wacko Jacko fans, Samsung has the external hard drive for you.

In just two weeks' time, the South Korean giant will release a 500GB 2.5in drive - the S2 Portable - pre-loaded with the Jackson film This is it. Gold coloured, the drive's top is styled with the star's sillhouette.

Samsung's Jacko Drive: yes, this is it

The drive, which will go on sale across Europe, is being released alongside the movie's appearance on all the more usual formats.

Samsung described the drive as a special edition product, but you may not need to snap it up quickly to avoid missing out. Last summer, Samsung released a Terminator Salvation-themed 500GB S2, and you can still pick these up.

The manufacturer didn't say how much the Jackson S2 will cost. The standard version will set you back between £65 and £70. ®
