Toshiba introduces self-encrypting/self-wiping hard drive

Toshiba has produced a secure laptop drive that has built in encryption and can be set to wipe itself if it is removed from the computer or the wrong access code is entered.

The drive comes in sizes ranging from 160GB to 640GB and spins at 7200rpm. It's a respectable drive, and the security measures are awesome. But you definitely have to make frequent backups. If anything happens to your computer your data could be history. But you should be backing your drive up, anyway.
