Now here is something interesting… a HDD that is WiFi connected, any web capable device can use it, if the media is native to the device, or you can use apps to convert media.

“This shiny, streamlined black box is about the size of a couple of decks of cards. Plug it into a Mac or PC via USB 3.0 (or 2.0), fill it up with music, movies and photos, and then enjoy them on any Wi-Fi device — if the files are compatible. Inside this attractive package is a rechargeable battery that powers the drive for five hours, a Wi-Fi access point and 500GB of hard drive storage space.”

Personally I wouldn’t go near that device, not because it probably the neatest thing created in a while, but because it just wouldn’t be worth 200$ to me, 500gb is a little on the small side, once they start releasing larger capacities with the same if not better functionality then I might bite, until then, those who do purchase the device, enjoy!
