    The LaCie Wireless Space Is A Glorious Mash-up Of A NAS And Wireless Router

    Network-attached backup devices are sold at Walmart these days so excuse me if I don't get that excited about the space anymore. They're everywhere and for the most part, that's a good thing as people really should be backing up their files somewhere.

    Looking for a very, very small USB drive? Well, LaCie has got you covered. The new MosKeyto is about as small as I can picture these things getting.

    Will Motherboards Soon Offer On-Board Storage?

    For a long time, using a motherboard's on-board resources was considered... uncivilized. But nowadays, you can run decent 3D on integrated graphics, and sound cards are less and less necessary as boards provide excellent built-in surround sound. Could storage be far behind?
