In a social scene that looks like someone spun a roulette wheel, The Zuck, Nas, and mega-rich Silicon Valley investor Ben Horowitz were all in a room for some reason. And it was all Instagrammed.
One household, zillions of files of music, movies, and games. And today LaCie introduced another solution for sharing all of them—the CloudBox.
Nas has a new album. It's pretty good. It's also got a song featuring Amy Winehouse. And oh man, this song.
Lacie's LaPlug is identical to the Pogoplug in concept: plug in any USB HDD and it magically transforms into a Time Machine-compatible NAS drive that's accessible from outside your home network. This is a product trend I like.
The NAS box. It's not particularly sexy or groundbreaking, but network-attached storage is an obvious solution for a common need. And here's the very best of the bunch.
Apple's Time Capsule refresh generated about as much chatter as a networked hard drive can possible drum up—but what if you don't want a router/backup mutant? Here are three non-Apple data-ass-savers we vouch hard for:
It's been rumored that an updated Time Capsule model will cache and distribute downloads from the app store. Now sources tell Ars Technica that Time Capsule will have an A4 or A5 processor and run iOS, like AppleTV. [Ars Technica]
Cloud Systems' Pogoplug is the little Linux-based box that can turn any hard drive into a NAS/Server, streaming photos and music not only over LAN, but the internet as well. With the latest iteration, Pogoplug can now stream HD video.
Technology's about a lot more than buying stuff—but let's be honest, we all love our gadgets. So we're here to help you find the best of the best—laptops, cameras, phones, and a lot more.
Pogoplug, a device that lets you put any USB disk onto the internet, is getting a wireless adapter. Now you can have your disk anywhere in your house and still access it from the outside world.
Recently the manufacturing trend in mainstream network storage has been to eschew using Microsoft's Windows Home Server packages, which is basically a low-powered PC, and coming up with their own proprietary machines. Seagate's? Basically just a hard drive.
"What gadget should I get?" is a timeless question. To answer it, here's our current leaderboard of favorite gadgets, including smartphones, laptops and cameras—updated with the latest and greatest.
The Black Dwarf reminds me of those old 3.5" floppy cases from the 90s. Except it uses eight 2TB hard drives. 16 terabytes. RAID 5. 266 megabytes per second reading. 88 megabyte per second writing. All custom-made. Good. God.
So, you just plunked down for some network attached storage. 500GB? 2TB? Doesn't matter! Even the most cavernous NAS is just a dumb brick—if you don't know what to do with it.
The good people at MobileMag got a chance to review the new Addonics pocket NAS 2.0 NAS2XU2, and they report that for the price and the size, it's worthy of your attention.
Hey storage fiends? The 4TB WSS NAS monster from Buffalo just jumped the Pacific and made its way Stateside. The smokey smell is your credit card.
If you are looking for a network storage solution that you can access remotely, the MyDitto could be one of the simplest and surprisingly cost effective solutions out there.
Looking for a cheap, easy NAS solution that also lets you access your data away from home? Iomega's $100 iConnect might be the gizmo for you.
