Wil here again, with a cool networking product I want to recommend. We all know one can never have too much storage space for their data â€“ and now that I have a 13 Mbps Internet connection, my storage is running out FAST and I donâ€™t have the time nor patience to backup my data on DVDs. So the other day I got myself a D-Link DNS-323 NAS Device. NAS stands for Network Attached Storage if you like to type a lot.
Steve Jobs has been through this a few times, and 2007 would be a tough act to follow – for nearly anyone after the stellar performance of the iPhone and iPod-laden world we live in, but a somewhat tired, weak and seemingly frail leader of the Mac World had four (4) big announcements for the world.
Time Machine was a feature built into Apple’s last version of the O/S and now they have extended it’s functionality by integrating either a 500GB or 1TB hard drive into an 802.11n wireless router. Pretty basic stuff – DLink and others already have similar products and it was US Robotics intention to do so years ago when 802.11b (11Mbps) was announced – and the price of $299 and $499 respectively may be a little bit pricey for some NAS. For Mac enthusiasts – it could be $10,000. And Is Steve Jobs sick?
Even though Apple products get their own show every year, CES 2008 is Las Vegas was literally inundated with products for the Apple iPod. Whether you want to use your iPod as a clock, radio, or just want to walk around your house using your iPhone like a regular phone, there was something for everyone. TigerTV host Nikki was on the scene and got to sample some of the great iPod accessories that were dreamed up by the showâ€™s participants. Check it out!
Apple Inc. is big on everyoneâ€™s wish list this year, so get ready to fork over the green. If youâ€™ve purchased anything from an iMac to an iPod, youâ€™re going to want to accessorizeâ€”and itâ€™s going to cost you. Iâ€™ve decided to spend the week showcasing a few things that are designed specifically for use [...]
Apple has also limited the number of iPhones any single customer can purchase, down to two from the original 5. It is widely believed that Apple wants to limit the number of people who are buying the phone in order to unlock it (in other words, use on any carrier but that of AT&T) and to prevent resellers.
Good News for iPod owners: Apple is slashing the price of its premium DRM-free music tracks offered on iTunes. The iTunes website, which sells the only DRM protected music compatible with the iPod music player, has offered DRM free music tracks for a while now. However, those tracks cost more money than your average iPod [...]
With all of our Ã¼ber-geeks out there, we know that many of you are secretly (or not so secretly) using an iPhone. It truly is one of the devices in a long-time to take a complete departure from the norm and basically do a lot of things right – but as with any new break-out product – there will be some revisions over time.
Today, Steve Jobs posted an “Open Letter” after purportedly getting, and reading, hundreds of emails from iPhone owners over the recent price drop of a $599 iPhone (with 8GB) to $399 after such a very short time. Can’t blame Steve on trying to get everyone to chip in for R&D on this device including the purchase of the company who designed much of the interface on their own, can ya?
Move over iPhoneâ€”or at least make room at the dinner table. Apple released its newest member of the iPod lineup, the iPod Touch, today. Built on the same chassis and featuring many of the same features as the iPhone, I think itâ€™s the slickest looking iPod ever. Check it out!
