I am a big fan of wireless computer gear; I have more cables running across my desk than I want. It would be great to shed all those cables and go wireless. Iomega has announced a new external storage interface device called the iConnect that will cut some of those wires.

The device has built-in wireless connectivity and a pair of USB ports that allow the iConnect to be used as a wireless print server and a wireless network storage device, assuming you plug an external hard drive into one of the USB ports. The device supports 802.11b/g/n networks and has a wired gigabit Ethernet port as well.

 

The iConnect is compatible with Apple Time Machine backups and works with Windows computers as well. It supports CIFS/SMB/Rally (Microsoft), AFP/Bonjour (Apple), HTTP, HTTPS network protocols and can be configured for remote access from anywhere in the world. The device will ship in February for $99.99.
