Iomega is announcing today the release of their new network attached storage device, the 100d. It comes in two versions, a 160GB and 250GB version. I spoke with Iomega about this device earlier in the week, and I can assure you this is more than just a hard drive with a network plug on it. It is basically a very small form factor PC that is self contained and managed through a web interface that functions as network storage as well as a wireless access point if so desired.

I can clearly remember the days when CD writers were so expensive I couldn't justify the costs just for some relatively unimportant backups. My, how things have changed! 8x8 DVD Rewriters are swiftly becoming the de facto optical storage medium, largely because prices continue to drop like a stone.
