Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive 500GB

,----[ Quote ]
| A network drive serves two main purposes. 
| One, it is a place to store your files – 
| plain and simple. When you are maxed out on 
| space on your PC, a network drive affords the 
| extensive storage required for advanced 
| computing work, media files and backups. The 
| second main purpose: enhancing your digital 
| life. More than just a network drive, the 
| Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive – which 
| is about the size of a male hand and styled 
| with an unassuming black enclosure – provides 
| a wealth of powerful and unusual digital 
| media features, many of which work quite well 
| with Linux computers.


PC fits into keyboard, uses only five Watts

| Thailand-based NorhTec announced a device 
| touted as "the world's most energy-efficient 
| desktop computer," offered for only $99 with 
| the Linux version. Built into a standard-
| sized keyboard, the "Gecko Surfboard" runs on 
| a 1GHz x86 SoC (system on chip), operates 
| fanlessly, and uses just five Watts, the 
| company says.



New generation of Iomega's double-drive desktop NAS appliance

,----[ Quote ]
| The appliance utilizes the EMC LifeLine
| software, a fully-developed Linux operating
| environment and suite of applications that
| is designed for cross-platform support with
| Windows, Mac and Linux computers.


Linux-based home NAS boasts 5-18 Watt power consumption

,----[ Quote ]
| Iomega announced a Linux-based, dual-drive
| networked attached storage (NAS) appliance for the
| home-business and consumer market. The Iomega
| StorCenter ix2-200 is available in 1TB, 2TB, and
| 4TB capacities, and offers RAID 1 support, user-
| replaceable storage, a QuikTransfer copy button,
| 5-18 Watt power consumption, and a DLNA/UPnP media
| server, says Iomega.


Iomega: EMC's entry to be at the center of your home

,----[ Quote ]
| Schwartz’s plan: Make Iomega’s storage software—a derivative of what is used
| in EMC’s enterprise systems—consumer friendly so that it takes four clicks to
| set up. Behind the scenes Iomega would include EMC technology from RSA and
| other units. Schwartz said EMC retooled Iomega’s software from scratch on the
| Linux kernel. The benchmark: “Whoever your partner is in life should be able
| to use this software in 5 minutes,” said Schwartz.


- From Hard Drives, Iomega Moves to Servers

,----[ Quote ]
| Iomega entered the market on Monday, in advance of the CES 2009 show this
| week, with the Iomega Home Media Network Hard Drive, a home server running a
| streamlined version of the Linux operating system.


Iomega Pledges NAS Box Will Be a Platform

,----[ Quote ]
| The ix2 software itself is based upon a Linux shell, called LifeLine, which
| has been localized in 11 languages, according to Iomega.


EMC scoops up Iomega

,----[ Quote ]
| Software and storage company EMC announced Tuesday that it will purchase
| Iomega for $213 million, or $3.85 per share. EMC expects the deal to close
| sometime during the second quarter of this year.

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement. They seem always to be behaving like monkeys in reaction to human dissenters, throwing feces at one another and beating their chests pretending to know something. My Linux is not that Linux. My Linux is the Linux of Love, of sharing, friendship, community. It is a uniquely human Linux and not one for monkeys. When I speak with fellow Linux users in real life (i.e. not in the monkeyhouse of COLA) they remin...
