Spin up this Flash Rods model DeLorean stainless steel hard drive car and go back to the future with MBs costing seven times more than they need to. The 1:18 scale model is a glorious rendition of John DeLorean's DMC-12 auto-dream re-envisioned as the Back To The Future car with its Flux Capacitor. It comes with "with 50's style …
First time you get a power surge, all that will be left of this thing is a couple of burning tyre tracks on your desk.
And precisely how many times cooler is it than ANY other external storage on this planet?
7 times cooler? 7x7 times cooler?
It's 88 times cooler as any fule kno
it's 1.21 Gigatimes cooler
Back to the future!?
So, does it come with "Back To The Future" data restoration capabilities as well? IE, can it restore data that I haven't created yet? :-) Now, that would be a treat!
Well, you are not buying it for the storage, exactly...
... You are more buying it for the value as a collector's item.
Sounds almost right....
...all they need to do is ask for goverment cash, make it so it breaks down every 5 mins and generally be utter shit and they almost are there. They just need to run of with the cash and all will be sorted.
Seagate and InvestNI
Seagate are halfway there already with their Northern Ireland plant shedding jobs over the years after InvestNI government grants...
(cf. DeLorean Dunmurry plant....)
You've driven one too?
After years of wanting one and then finally getting one I discover to my horror I'd get the same handling and performance for less money by importing a Routemaster bus into Canada.
if you spin the platters up to 8800rpm you can retrieve that file you accidentally deleted. Except that your USB connection has to deliver 1.2GW.
Shurely Shome Mishtake
1.21GW.. but what's ten megawatts between friends right?
Is there a complimentary sticker for your forehead with "I am a lose^H^H^H^H nerd^H^H^H^H geek" written on it?
Here's a question . . .
Will it work with Apple's Time Machine?
You can buy that same model for about £60
and a Dremel for another £40 or so...
I know what I want for Xmas
Back(up) to the Future?
Perfect for the top of your TiVo!
...even if it isn't one of the external storage-capable models.
(that's my remote control button pushing thumb, of course)
Are you telling me...
... you built a hard disk? out of a Delorean???
If you're going to store illegal downloads...
Might as well do it in style!
That's pronounced Jigawatts, of course, see http://www.deloreanmotorcar.com/ec/jigawatts.htm
Where we're going, we won't need hard drives!
I've already ordered one next week
Apparently it's ready for pickup last Tuesday, I received the confirmation on early next year.
Oh, wait. Or was it the other way around?
What would happen if Doc Brown bumped into Dr Who?
Maybe they can set up a race and whoever starts first... wins :-)
It Came Out Of Nowhere
This is one of the best selling t-shirt designs ever offered by Woot.
Just how is it the most expensive?
I've seen on sale iPods with a 1.8" 16GB drive on-board costing $50,000 (£32,000) because it's covered with gold and real diamonds.
That's a mere £2000 per GB.
and I've no doubt it's not the most expensive in the world...
Like they say...
Some real estate is costly!
Paris, coz Hilton's own some expensive bling.
