The LaCie Products  has come up with an  eye-catching LaCie Rugged All-Terrain External Hard Drive with bright-orange rubber bumper that protects the device from shocks.

The LaCie Rugged Hard Disk has both the universal USB 2.0 interface as well as the new Power eSATA interface, which, when connected to a Power eSATA port on your laptop, will allow your drive to be bus-powered. With the included USB power-sharing cable, it can also work with a standard eSATA port as well, making it incredibly compatible.

Panda USB Vaccine

Panda USB Vaccine is a free antimalware to block malware spreading through USB drives.

Panda Security vaccine is a  small portable tool that is able to “vaccine” your computer from virus that spreads through external USB drives. The computer vaccination prevents your computer from executing autorun.inf file and the USB drive vaccination creates a dummy autorun.inf file in your external usb drive so that virus can’t infect it.

Note: For those that use registry cleaners, make sure you run USB Vaccine after finishing scanning and cleaning.
