Self-Erasing Toshiba Drive Foils Thieves and Forgetful Owners

I applaud the logic behind Toshiba's self-erasing drives, which uses encryptions to recognize which machine it's in. If taken out and used in another PC, the encryption keys destroy the data, and voila, no-one can see all those photos and video you've meticulously stored away.

Only problem is, what happens if you forget you own a self-erasing drive? They range in capacity from 160GB to 640GB. [Toshiba via ComputerWorld via Wired]
