    Verbatim today announced a pair of Gran Turismo (GT) themed portable hard drives. Measuring 78 (W) x 118 (L) x 16 (H) mm, and weighing a little over 150 g, Verbatim's GT drives can carry 500 GB of data. The drives come in swanky red or black colors with the stripes characterizing GT. On the other hand they USB 2.0 for connectivity and power, and feature a "green button" that reduces power draw by sending the drive into a standby mode. The Verbatim GT is accompanied by Nero BackItUp, and Nero Burn Essentials. It is priced at 88.50 EUR.

    Off topic, but kind of on topic, I once knew a person that read and believed they gained horsepower by putting a spoiler on their trunk lid....and no one could convince him otherwise. He must be working for these folks?! Why would a hard drive need racing stripes...and only 500gb at that price...fail.
