Painless Backups: On that old USB hard drive you've got over there!

A great new item was introduced at the CES show in Las Vegas last week.
It's called Clickfree Transformer Cable and costs,
as soon as you can find it, approximately $60.
Here's what it looks like.

Just plug it into one of your handy dandy USB ports and you're off.
Your system will recognize and deal with the driver issues.

The maufacturer says, “No software to install or setup. Works right out-of-the-box. Just
plug the Clickfree Transformer into the computer, then plug any
external USB hard drive into the other end of the Transformer
and it converts the external hard drive into a Clickfree backup drive.
Automatically starts, finds, organizes and backs up all of your data
onto the external hard drive.”

“Backing up personal content is becoming more important as people
turn their photos, movies and other content into digital formats,” said
Tim Bajarin, president and principal analyst of Creative Strategies.
“The Clickfree Transformer Cable now makes it very simple to take any
hard drive and turn it into a highly personal back up device.”

I did a brief search on google, but couldn't yet find it for sale.

I can't wait!
