LaCie announces a go-anywhere 1 TB wireless hard drive for iPad, iPhone and Mac –Fuel
LaCie today announced Fuel: a go-anywhere wireless hard drive for iPad, iPhone and Mac. Without requiring Internet access, the LaCie Fuel adds 1TB of external storage capacity to compatible mobile devices. Users can store up to 500 movies, 160,000 songs or 190,000 photos, and share them with up to five devices at a time. AirPlay compatibility allows users to easily stream movies onto the big screen via Apple TV or music to compatible speakers. LaCie Fuel marks the first product collaboration between Seagate and LaCie.
The LaCie Fuel lets users go off–the–grid and still have access to their files. With up to a 10–hour battery life, the LaCie Fuel lets users enjoy their media all day without needing Internet or cables. The product creates its own Wi–Fi network, much like a router, so other devices can connect directly to it without the need for Internet access. In addition, the LaCie Fuel acts as a hotspot when connected to the Internet via Wi–Fi. This feature lets the LaCie Fuel share Internet access with other connected devices.
With AirPlay compatibility, the LaCie Fuel lets users mirror content playing on a mobile device to a TV with a single tap. This allows users to view everything from vacation photos to home videos stored on the LaCie Fuel on the largest screen in the house. They can also take advantage of Airplay–enabled speakers to listen to their favorite playlist on the LaCie Fuel. The 1TB LaCie Fuel will be available soon through the LaCie Online Store and LaCie Resellers for $199.99.
