Is There Any Point to the World’s First Wireless USB Drive? – Imation Pro WX – Gizmodo

I get that it is cool technology, but I don't get the Imation Pro WX. It's the world's first Wireless USB disk drive, sure, but there are already drives that are Wi-Fi enabled. So, how is this different?

Imation argues that, by providing a one-to-one connection over the air, the Pro WX Wireless USB hard drive “limits the possibility of signal interception.” That's a pretty vague claim to me. They also argue that it works like any other USB drive, although it only transfers data at 15 megabytes per second. That's not too fast compared to a Network Attached Storage drive over Wi-Fi.
