…and not WoW as in World of Warcraft, but rather Wow as in “Wow, I really would like to have one of those!”.
“One of those” is one of the new nifty little thingies developed by Agere Systems, “a global leader in semiconductors and software solutions for storage, mobility and networking markets.” While this does not sound exactly interesting, their new offering, the BluOnyx Mobile Content Server certainly does. It is a small, credit card sized storage server, with the size ranging from 1Gb to 40Gb (and the prize ranging accordingly). It allows the user to store material and data, and transfer it to and from just about anything – mobile phones, digital cameras, PCs, Gameboxes etc, using wireless, USB and SD solutions.
So now the little BluOnyx lets you get something you downloaded to your PC, wirelessly transfer it to the BluOnyx server and later on watch it on your mobile phone on your way home from work. Or just about any other combination you can think of. One nifty little thing is their coined “Digital Campfire”-possibility – put the BluOnyx on a table and let all the friends around the table access it with their mobile phones.
Short of the slightly tacky name, it’s simply great.
So, please please mr Santa, one of these, ok?
