The Transporter is a private data sharing and storage device from the folks at Connected Data, a team comprised of many of the same folks who worked on the Drobo. It's able to communicate with every other Transporter device, anywhere in the world, elimination the need for a third-party cloud storage solution for any files stored. Even more impressive? The Transporter is a Kickstarter project that is actually shipping on time - just 20 days after the end of its massively successful campaign. Compare that to other Kickstarter hardware projects, and you'll see just how impressive this is. You can pick up a Transporter with no drive for $199, a model with a 1 TB drive for $299, or a 2 TB version for $399. Hit the break for a video explaining how it all works.

Building on their line of Squeezebox and Transporter music network devices, Logitech is introducing the Squeezebox Duet. Consisting of a brand new controller with a full-color 2.4 inch LCD screen and a receiver that utilizes 802.11g, the Duet allows users to stream music from any computer to any room with an audio setup in the house, browse their music collection, and view album art.
When the Squeezebox Duet’s receiver is registered, users can even use the receiver and remote to browse Internet radio stations, subscription-based music services, and music that the user has uploaded to the open-source SqueezeNetwork, no computer required. Additional receivers can be added in order to control the music in every room in the house, separately or synced so that every room is playing the same thing. For people already using the Squeezebox (and Transporter) system, controllers can be purchased alone and integrated into an existing network.
Squeezebox Duet will be released this month and will retail for $400. Individual receivers will retail for $150, and standalone controllers will retail for $300.
