LaCie Wireless Space: the Sith’s Time Capsule

LaCie has outed its latest external hard-drive, the Wireless Space, and while the Neil Poulton designed 1TB and 2TB drives may look a lot like the company's other blocky models, inside there's a whole lot of wireless goodness simmering away.  The LaCie Wireless Space is a combination NAS, gigabit ethernet and WiFi b/g/n router, media server and network extender, basically the company's own version of the Apple Time Capsule.

$99 Apple TV update gets iPhone OS, 1080p HD and cloud-storage?

Details of Apple's upcoming Apple TV platform refresh have emerged, with Engadget claiming to have heard from a trusted source that the Cupertino company is planning a new, $99 set-top box that would use iPhone OS and cloud-based storage.  In fact, the new Apple TV sounds a lot like a headless-iPhone: it's described as having minimal ports, basically just power and a 1080p HD video output, as well as using the same 1GHz Apple 14 CPU and 16GB of onboard storage.

Sonos ZonePlayer S5 wireless speaker makes distributed audio (a little) cheaper [Video]

Sonos have pushed out a new ZonePlayer in their distributed home audio system, and in doing so drops the entry price by a (relatively) high amount.  The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 packages together a receiver and an amplified 5-driver speaker into a single unit, which for $399 (or €350 in Europe) undercuts the previous entry-level ZonePlayer 90 which demanded a separate set of powered speakers on top of its $349 sticker price.
