WD game-centric set-top spied on web

FCC briefly spills beans

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

It's getting harder to call Western Digital a hard drive company. One of its next offerings, for instance, is a new WD TV set-top box, the Play.

Spotted in US Federal Communications Commission emissions testing reports, the TV-connected gadget appears to take the basic WD TV media playback functionality and add casual on-telly gaming through online services like PlayJam, reveal content posted on the FCC but yanked even as we were reading them.

Good job we got snaps first:

So you can see what the WD TV Play looks like, allowing us to confirm HDMI, Ethernet and USB portage, and assume Wi-Fi connectivity too, but not tell when it's coming out or how much it'll cost when it does. ®
