All for the promotion of a game that the developer claims had gone terribly amiss, the company behind a foolish marketing stunt claims that $9,000,000 was caused in damages and 21 have become homeless as a result of the company's total disregard in devising a ludicrous public spectacle. Several people had even come close to death as result of a poorly-planned wrecking ball demolition... or not.
Last week we brought you word of a new product at CES called the AirStash. At the time, there really weren't any details available to us except that it would be a portable media server for your iPhone and other wireless devices. Unfortunately we weren't able to attend CES this year, but Engadget did get a chance to check it out.
Essentially the AirStash is an SD card reader with a battery, a web server, and 802.11b/g wireless built-in. The USB port is used for charging and managing data from a computer. Accessing the device on a phone is done in the browser and it supports SDHC cards of up to 32GB. There's still no pricing info, shipping date, or word on battery life, but we'll be sure to update you when if and when we hear more. Lots of images follow below!
If you're like me, you regularly struggle to figure out which files you can and can't load onto your iPhone because it's just so darn small. But as they say, "there's an app for that," or in this case "there's a chunky-looking USB thingy for that."
The AirStash is a wireless media server that looks like an oversized USB drive with a power button on the top and an SD slot on the back. The USB end is presumably used to charge the device and the power button turns it on when you're ready to use it. The info stored on the SD card can then be wirelessly accessed on your iPhone or shared with your friends. They bill it as a "pocketable wireless media server," so we assume it'll be targeted at storing stuff like movies and TV shows — exactly the kind of stuff that takes up space on your iPhone in the first place.
