    Default Turing your computer into a portable Hard Drive
    Had a buddy tell me once when i first got my laptop, that if you hold down the "T" button while booting the computer, it boot up as an external hard drive and you can connect to another "apple" computer with a 'FIREWIRE.'

    I havent personally tried it, but it looks like it will just load on the other "apple computer" as an external hard drive... Like the flash drives do.

    That's not it's proper purpose. It is data transfer mode to control the other computer. Useful in transferring large files or fixing issues with your non host computer.
