Jude Law

It’s time once again to congratulate those celebrities entering into parenthood:

Jude Law: Just because he’s no longer married doesn’t mean he’s no longer virile. A rep for the Sherlock Holmes star confirmed that Law will become a father once again. Although he is no longer in a relationship with the unidentified woman, he reportedly “intends to be a fully supportive part of the child’s life.” Jude, who previously had an affair with his child’s former nanny, already has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost.

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Artist News, Hip-Hop & Rap,

Nas and Kelis

Hip hop couple Nas and Kelis are calling a wrap to their marriage after she filed to divorce the hip hop legend.  The filing comes at an unfortunate time since Kelis is seven months pregnant, but as she claims in her divorce papers, Nas has been verbally abusive and cheats on her.  Hopefully, the couple can keep the proceedings civil since there is a child involved and things go smoothly, both in the divorce of the couple’s almost six-year marriage and Kelis’ delivery.

DroboPro: 8 drives of networked goodness

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: PC / Laptop, Storage,

DroboPro

You guys probably know that we are big fans of here at Gear Live, which is why we are happy to bring news of the DroboPro. When the last Drobo refresh happened a few months ago, the DroboPro is what we were hoping we would see. A smart, sexy, almost-foolproof NAS box that can currently hold up to 16 TB of storage in its 8 hard drive bays. So, what else is different about the DroboPro, aside from the 4 extra drive slots? How about that fact that there is no need to purchase a DroboShare to get this thing on your network? It has an integrated gigabit Ethernet port, in addition to it’s dual FireWire 800 ports and USB 2.0 connection. The gigabit Ethernet uses iSCSI, which allows for speedy file transfer of about 100 MB per second. Not bad, at all.

The DroboPro is also rack-mountable, thanks to the wider form factor. Drobo is definitely coming out big with this one. We desperately want to get our hands on one (along with either 2 TB hard drives.) Oh wait, did you feel that? That was the shudder of realizing that this might be a tad on the expensive side. You see, ordering a DroboPro with no hard drives will run you $1300. Of course, for businesses and the like, not a big deal—but for us home folk, it’s spendy in this rough economic climate. Still, price notwithstanding, the DroboPro is slick. Hit the jump for a shot of the back of the unit.
