LaCie doubles wireless capacity for iPhones, iPads

The drive maintains the same form factor as the 1TB model

Hard drive maker LaCie today announced it is doubling the capacity of its Fuel wireless drive for iPads, iPhones and Mac systems.

The latest version of the drive, which was first announced in January, now has up to 2TB of storage capacity.

The drive will be available this month and will have a retail price of $249.99.

The LaCie Fuel offers the same features and 2.5-in. drive form factor as the 1TB model. The features include wireless streaming of content to up to five devices without an Internet connection; the ability to create its own Wi-Fi network and act as a hotspot when connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi; Airplay compatibility for mirroring content on a larger screen; and up to 10-hours of battery life.

LaCie uses the Seagate Media application to connect with Apple mobile devices. The Seagate Media app is compatible with iOS and enables the wireless hard drive features. LaCie is a subsidiary of Seagate, and is especially well known in the Mac user community.

"With the 2TB LaCie Fuel, users can go from 20 movies on a 32GB iPad to over 1,000 movies on the Fuel. This allows users to store entire movie collections without sacrificing any of the content they need," LaCie stated in its news announcement.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
