Hard drive maker Seagate has revamped its range of external HDDs, restyling the line as the FreeAgent GoFlex series - drives with a proprietary interface that feeds standard ports through adaptor cables. The notion is simple. You buy your drive, which comes with a USB 2.0 adaptor, but if you want to, say, take advantage of eSata …
'cos I just don't feel I have enough cables to carry around! I could get on board if the cables were £4.99 and you got your choice of cable adapter included in the price of the drive.
If a cable costs more than a fiver...
...then it's unlikely I'm buying that cable. It's proprietary stuff like this that continually pisses me off. I don't even pay more than a few quid for HDMI cables - $30 for a USB adaptor on an external drive?
Bike. Yours. Get on.
I want one!
..but only because in the bottom pic it looks like a happy, winking rabbit..*

I don't see the point.
