How will Seagate keep Apple happy?

Apple can always change their T&C to outlaw the use of external storage systems not to their liking. Apple has an interest in reserving any innovation to itself, unless it's getting a cut and fosters dependency on Apple.

Apple would like customers' data exclusively in their cloud. Maybe this will be a means of uploading large quantities of data to the cloud.

Bluetooth HD?

I want a battery-powered, blue-tooth enabled, external drive. I wanna leave it in my backpack or pocket and massively expand the storage on my portable. They've put every other friggin' connector and widget on the GoFlex... why not bluetooth?

I think we can rule out convenient external storage as Apple will simply kill it off as nobody would ever bother buying anything above and beyond the base model.

i reckon..

it's a combination of a clever app, an docking connector-based radio-type dongley thingey, and a small HDD with a power reserve.

Connect said dongle to iPad, and power up your external drive. iPad app then allows access to storage space and media stored on said external drive...

Bloody obvious

Its a docking station, with USB ports, harddrive.

Attached to one long edge of the slab so the screen hinges up to expose a keyboard.

This will also act as a screen protector when mobile.

Anybody know the way to the patent office?

Media server

Upload music+videos to media server, stream onto iPad via WiFi. Maybe they've got some special software, or maybe they have extra hardware like a TV tuner or DVD player built into it. Maybe it streams over the internet.

Weefee HDD

Methinks it will be wireless HDD or flash.
