No such thing, it will be a VERY LONG TIME before one does exisist. Bluetooth is only 3mbs right now, so it would be extreamly

I would NEVER want a wireless external drive at this point. Way too slow and way too much chance for data corruption, etc....

Just connect a USB hard disk, and you've got an instant wireless SAN. Not exactly a wireless HD, but pretty close.

I am just thinking how annoying it is to me that I have the Wireless iTunes through Airport Express but it doesn't matter because all of my music is on my External Hard Drive and I am stuck being wired up anyway...

Maybe a hard drive to hold your music next to the Airport Express...

I just need a bigger hard drive on my Powerbook....
