Do Not Buy

A splendid heads up warning from Devil's Kitchen about the heavily advertised (or perhaps I just watch TV shows that have a high geek profile, who knows) Western Digital 1TB My Book Network Storage Drive.

There's a PC World advert saying what cracking value it is - at £149 - and how useful it would be to store all your photos and stuff on. Well, this is kinda true, and could probably be considered excellent value if you weren't planning on sharing those files with anyone else.

You see, the My Book has been crippled. You CANNOT share MP3, MP4, AAC, AIFF, AVI, DivX, WMV, WMA, OGG, and QuickTime files using this drive. Which does make its purpose seem completely pointless. Cunts.


Apparently there is a hack for this if you're feeling adventurous in Linux.
