The Glean of the Yellow Machine

Luxury Electronics: Imagine returning home one day to find that your vast collection of movies, iTunes songs, Spring break photos, and European vacation videos, address books, and important personal documents have simply vanished. There are no signs of a robbery-just blank disk after blank disk and a fried hard drive. Chances are your files haven't been confiscated by secret agents-well, you don't have to rule it completely out-you've been a victim of data disintegration. The standard hard drive is rated to last approximately two years and a CD-ROM may only last a year before it begins to lose integrity (meaning bye-bye Vegas pics). While you may love your new flatscreen and Xbox, you can easily replace them-memories, on the other hand, are invaluable and yet we treat them so carelessly.

It's the Yellow Machine to the rescue. What looks like an innocent yellow toaster can protect your prized files and images from a system meltdown. The aptly named Yellow Machine plugs directly into a PC, Mac or wireless router and can store up to 2 terabytes of data (that's 2,000 gigabytes) for work or fun. It automatically backs up all PCs connected on a home network, and integrates with Tivo to extend its storage capacity. Media adapters like a Roku Soundbridge and Xbox 360 will recognize the Yellow Machine and play the hundreds of DVDs or weeks of music that it can store. The Yellow Machine contains four hard drives with FailSafe RAID technology that makes it 1,000 times more secure than a hard drive; it scans for data errors before they happen and ensures that if one drive inside fails, the others can restore its contents.
