Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station turns USB drives into remote NAS

We've a feeling Iomega have been keeping an eye on Pogoplug, since the new Iomega iConnect Wireless Data Station offers the same sort of networked connectivity for USB drives.  Basically a remotely-accessible NAS with no onboard storage, the iConnect has four USB 2.0 ports for hooking up external drives or memory keys, together with a gigabit ethernet port.

Iomega v.Clone promises easy portable virtualization

Iomega's new v.Clone app may not have the instant appeal of a shiny new piece of hardware, but it's a pretty neat piece of software that will be included on several of the company's external drives.  Iomega v.Clone aims to bring straightforward virtualization of a primary PC to a home audience, packing a clone of the OS together with all applications, settings and documents onto a removable drive which can later be booted into onto a second machine.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2009

After spending most of Friday curled in a ball twitching and drooling after losing power and Internet access for almost 12 hours, I am glad to be back online and in the 21st century again. Just in time to hunker down and dose myself with a nice helping of week in review for your perusal. Chris reviewed the GSM Palm Pre and found the camera wasn't as good as some of its peers but found plenty to like in the end. The webOS operating system stands apart from rival OS'.

Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 gets bigger, swappable drives

It's been a long time since we reviewed Iomega's original StorCenter ix2 NAS, and the company have finally got around to updating the dual-drive consumer/small-office backup and media-sharing system.  The Iomega StorCenter ix2-200 keeps the compact footprint of its predecessor but boosts capacity - 1TB, 2TB and 4TB models are on offer - upgrade potential and green credentials.

Unlike the ix2, the ix2-200 has twin user-accessible drive bays, and they're filled with low-power drives that are automatically spun-down when not in use.  The StorCenter also has DLNA media streaming, RAID 1 drive spanning for improved data security, three USB ports for plugging in external drives or webcams, and optional Bluetooth for wirelessly transferring files from mobile devices.
