Western Digital Has An Unlimited Personal Cloud For All Your Stuff

Yesterday, Western Digital unveiled its first My Cloud storage solution for Australian consumers. The WD My Cloud is a personal cloud drive that allows users to remotely access and backup content across all of their devices.

Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid Drive Review

Enter Seagate’s Momentus X Hybrid drives, which promise near-SSD speeds, but with giant HDD storage — and not-so-giant prices.


This Delorean Backs Up Your Computer At 88 MPH

This 500 gigabyte Back To The Future Hard Drive is already geekbait on its own, with its 1:18 scale stylings and all. But the thought of combining it with this could potentially cause a spontaneous nerdgasm. [Everything USB via Gearlog]


Samsung's Combined Blu-Ray/PVR Launching In Australia

Given Samsung’s penchant for shouting “First!” with home entertainment products, it’s surprising that it’s taken them so long to stick a hard drive and a HDTV tuner inside one of their Blu-ray players to make a one-box shop for your home theatre.
