There’s no doubt that Thunderbolt is establishing a foothold in the industry, but things are still at that awkward stage where the technology is here and available, but there aren’t too many hard drives shipping with the interface on board. Of those that are shipping, many are priced rather high. Seagate’s in-between solution, available now, is the GoFlex Thunderbolt adapter, which allows you to mount a GoFlex portable drive and connect to a Thunderbolt port for those lightning-fast (er, thunderbolt-fast?) transfer speeds promised by the new technology. The adapter will run you... Read more...
Just about every company represented at CES has a theme or two it’s focusing on at the show, and for Seagate, this year the spotlight is on mobile storage technologies, hybrid storage, and of course, speed. Seagate is showing off its update to the GoFlex Satellite drive, a battery-powered, mobile storage solution that streams media to a tablet, and it’s also showcasing a 4G LTE mobile wireless storage product. The result of a partnership with Verizon, the Seagate 4G LTE Mobile Wireless Storage (we assume the name is temporary) is designed to effectively boost the storage capacity of... Read more...
Somebody had to go and be the first to ship a 4TB external hard drive, and someone at Seagate sat around one day thinking, "Hey, why not us?" Why not indeed, and so Seagate today becomes the first to ship such an enormous amount of storage in an external drive. The company's new 4TB GoFlex Desk external hard drive is sleek, a little bit sexy, and ready to handle a mountain of data. "Yet another industry first for Seagate, we have reached a new high-capacity in the 3.5-inch hard drive form factor. At Seagate, we are committed to pushing the limits for our customers and will continue to adapt and... Read more...
Seagate's GoFlex Satellite is one of the more interesting inventions to pop up in the consumer electronics space. It's a portable hard drive that includes a Wi-Fi module so content can be easily streamed to a nearby portable device, and it can easily allow an 8GB iPod touch a multi-hundred gigabyte iPod touch. Until this week, there was only an iOS app. Any mobile device could work with the Satellite, but using a mobile web browser isn't nearly as elegant. Seagate mentioned that there would be multiple mobile apps coming out for various platforms in the coming months, and now, at least one platform... Read more...
Is it a hard drive? Or is it a media streamer? Or is it both? The answer, believe it or not, is "C." Seagate has just created a totally wild new portable hard drive, which not only holds 500GB of storage and ships with a GoFlex adapter and a USB 3.0 cable, but also has a built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi module that enables it to serve media (photos, videos, music, etc.) to any device with a web browser. The company's shipping it with an iOS app that works with iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, but Android devices and PCs/Macs are supported as well so long as there's a web browser ready to be used. It's called... Read more...
If you own Seagate's GoFlex TV or FreeAgent Theater+ HD media player, and you also enjoy using your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, there' a new control app that you should consider. For now, the only real way to control either of those boxes is with the remote that ships inside of the box. But that's a hassle. Why not use a device you already own? As of today, there's a new iOS app in the App Store that turns your iPod/iPad/iPhone into a remote for both of these boxes. Not only can you switch through various menus, but you can also use the keyboard to input text in Netflix, YouTube, etc. search boxes.... Read more...
Seagate's FreeAgent external hard drive line has competed with Western Digital's My Book line for several years now, and aside from growing capacities and the occasional feature-add, both lines have remained mostly constant. But now, Seagate is really putting the pressure on everyone else with the introduction of the GoFlex family.This range of storage solutions begins with the hard drives. Ranging from 320GB to 2TB, this drives have been slightly updated and look a lot more stylish, and they each ship with USB 2.0 support. The GoFlex cable system is unique in that it allows consumers to add support... Read more...
