I-O Data is set to release a rubber-coated USB hard drive called the HDMC-U. This is being touted as a water and shock resistant hard drive. The last time I check some flash drives were already liquid resistant. Oh well. The 12GB beast will be available in the middle of this month, just in time for the extreme holiday adventures that could put your 12GB porn collection at risk.

The UDMC-U will also be able in an 8GB flavor. Prices begin at $136.
