Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

Tiny has finally got round to revealing what its big time consumer product is. This is the device that will save it from the ravages of the skinny-margin retail PC business.

It's called the Tiny Takami - Takami means 'excellent idea' in Japanese - and it's a "TV, video recorder, hi-fi with jukebox, CD player, DVD player, PC, gaming console, Internet, e-mail facility and MP3 player, all in one small silver box."

All this is possible already with an upgraded PC (eg. using a hard drive for digital VHS) but if the specs/price ratio is good it might be a goer. The old PC/TV idea didn't fly back around 1996/97 but its time might be now.

An entry level Tiny Takami, complete with wireless keyboard, remote control and stereo speakers costs £999 (inc VAT) and this can be upgraded with a 15" LCD screen for £1499 (inc VAT).

If you've got your La-Z-boy recliner and a lot of wedge you can go for a 42" gas plasma screen and a DTS home theatre sound system model for £6999 (inc VAT)

The box is being shown off at the Ideal Home Exhibition at London's Earls Court from tomorrow. We should get a few more details about the technical specs then. ®
