ioSafe Announces Rugged Portable Drive with Data Recovery Service

The folks at ioSafe just keep coming up with better mousetrap kinds of ideas.  Their latest endeavor is the one pictured above.  If you have the need to have your dat with you on the go, but fear that the bumps & thumps portable drives take in your backpack or briefcase will ruin your data, fear no more.
The Rugged Portable will take anything you (or anyone else) can dish out.  And... if the worst case happens & the drive gets exposed to some nastiness such as fire, water, etc... there is the data recovery service to get your info back.  This thing is just plain sweet, there's no other way to describe it.
Here are the details, straight from ioSafe:
