Mac-Matching HDD Enclosure With Glowing Apple Logo:

The use of the Apple logo may have riled up some lawyers

Got an old 2.5-inch hard drive lying around but don’t know what to do with it? Or worse, you have a fully-functioning external drive but its just too hideous to remove from the closet (<cough> Lacie </cough>)? Well, if you are also a Mac owner, there’s good news for you in the shape of the iHdd 2 Slim External Hard Drive Enclosure.

Looking a lot like an oversized iPhone, this enclosure ships empty, ready to be filled with the bare 2.5-inch drive you already own (up to 500GB in size). The drive connects vie USB, is bus-powered and the Apple logo lights up when it’s in action.

Best of all, the enclosure costs just $26. Or rather, it did. Amazon says that “We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock,” making me suspect that the unauthorized use of the Apple logo has led to some legal shenanigans. Hopefully not, because I actually do have a stack of otherwise useless 2.5-inch drives in my closet.
