It’s scary how much many of us (except for you film folks) rely on hard drives these days, especially when you consider how easy they are to break. LaCie’s latest creation, though, is designed with toughness and security in mind. It comes in two flavors, including a 500 GB model ($190) and a roomy 1 TB model ($300). Both are equipped with a shock-proof enclosure with rubber edges, so it’ll stay safe in your bag and even if it takes a reasonable spill to the earth. You can hook it up using USB 2.0 or FireWire 800.
