LaCie intros SAFE Mobile Hard Drive with fingerprint security

LaCie SAFE Mobile Hard Drive

LaCie has just unveiled the SAFE Mobile Hard Drive, a USB 2.0 hard drive with built-in fingerprint authentication.  It's not the first such security-conscious drive, but this one's software is embedded so you won't need to install stuff on every computer you use it with.   Two models are available for pre-order now (shipping mid-July), the 40GB one'll run you $150 with the 80GB model costing fifty bucks more.  Both are 5400rpm drives with 8MB cache, and they'll each hold five different user profiles.
