Full Story

Hmm, kind of old news:

http://www.engadget.com/2010/08/08/qnaps-qmobile-app-enables-multimedia-nas-streaming-to-android-a/

the outfit has released QMobile apps for both Android and iOS, enabling everything from Google's Nexus One to Apple's iPod touch, iPad and iPhone to remotely stream images, tunes and videos so long as their NAS is online (and connected to a halfway decent broadband line).

Do I detect a bit of anti-iphone/Apple reporting bias :P

also seems you missed a potentially more interesting bit of storage news outside of boring, not so useful for me (yeah, if you had an iPhone in SF, or NYC you probably would h8 "clouds"), 'cloud' services.

New group hopes to push standard PCIe-based SSDs

http://www.electronista.com/articles/10/10/28/ssd.form.factor.working.group.aims.to.improve.ssd/

Three areas will be focused on to create the standard, including a new connector spec that will be compatible with SAS/SATA 3.0 and PCIe 3. The second includes a 2.5-inch form factor with the new connector and an expanded power envelope to drive faster speeds. Finally, the new drives will have support for hot-plug capability for quick access and serviceability.

Now why would they only have SATA 3Gbs and not 6GBs, if they are going to include PCI-e 3.0, that doesn't make much sense? though the thought of PCI-e connectivity interface 2.5in laptop SSD's is quite tantalizing, wouldn't you say?!?

^conspicuous absence of OCZ from the list, or just typical electronista poor reporting?
