Buffalo ships iPhone/HDD dock

Cradle your drive and your phone

Reducing security risks from open source software

Buffalo has released Dualie, which may sound like a fancy toaster but is actually a dock for iPods and external hard drives.

Buffalo Dualie

No, we're not entirely sure what the point is either, but Buffalo reckons there are folk out there who have an iPod or iPhone, need an external hard drive too, but can't face connecting the two devices to their computer by more than one cable.

The 500GB 2.5in hard drive that comes with the dock has both USB 2.0 and Firewire 800 ports, though the dock itself is limited to USB 2.0 - it's also a two-port hub.

We can see Dualie being handy for folk with MacBook Airs - or any other computer with a single USB port and no Firewire, but few others apart from the habitually tidy.

Dualie costs around £170, but a regular Firewire 800 and USB 2.0 500GB hard drive will only set you back £100. Docks are a lot less than £70. ®
