LaCie's Rugged line of external HDDs just got USB 3.0'd

Few people even have USB 3.0 ports on their PCs at the moment, but that shouldn’t stop peripheral-makers from preparing for the demand. Let’s be honest: as cool as Light Peak sounds, it’s really not going to sucker-punch USB 3.0, which is already well on its way to being a standard. So I’m perfectly happy to report that LaCie is upgrading its Rugged line of hard drives to support it, with a $20 premium for the privilege. That’s really all there is to say.
