NAS (yet more), did you catch Apple's new Base Station?

While everyone is off debating if the iPhone or the iTV is hipper,
there was another interesting announcement.

Apple released an upgrade to their Wireless base station which
includes a USB port which can share a hard drive.

NAS anyone?

The technical information mentions that Windows machines can connect
to the NAS device I will assume it is running Samba. At the under
$200 price tag that makes the device about $100 more then the
comparable devices that you can find on the market (though none of
these support 802.11N just yet).

I knew I should have written up my prediction the other day that
Apple would enter into the home NAS business :)

With Apple hitting the numbers selling hardware, it makes you wonder
who the fellows in Redmond have on their list to acquire (not that
they are likely to).
