Beginning in April, Seagate is offering a two terabyte (2TB) version of its LaCie Fuel wireless hard drive. (It’s the small device pictured above.) Apparently some people haven’t yet grasped the concept of cloud computing; the idea that we’ll all have lightweight mobile devices and store all of our media and files on servers out there on the tubes of the internets, somewhere.

Or perhaps these people only have internet access at work, so they spend lots of time each day downloading all sorts of music and video to hold them over to the next day.

For whatever reason, LaCie has discovered there are people who want to carry around with them a $250 portable, wireless 2TB hard drive with some pretty cool features. About 1/4 the size of a full-sized iPad, these hard drives can hold up to 600,000 photos or 2,000 hours of videos (or 1,000, if HD). Or, a PowerPoint presentation that lasts for over a year–but please don’t try it.
