Double-Dipped Tech News August 7, 2012


The blackberries are ripening, and kids are starting to go back to school.  You know what that means?  That’s right: crunchy-fried, double-dipped Tech News Portions!  We really did double-dip this news this time, as we wanted to make sure we got absolutely every morsel of tender, flaky golden-brown news goodness.

We don’t recommend that you actually deep-fry your own news: we are professionals.

Synology DiskStation DS112+ High-Performance 1-bay All-in-1 NAS Server Review @ Madshrimps
The DS112+ from Synology is a full feature-packed NAS like the more expensive versions but does offer only a single bay, meaning that is more suitable for businesses that do not need a huge amount of storage space. However, thanks to the connectivity options (1x eSATA and 2x USB 3.0), we can attach more external storage to it, if needed. The read-write performances of the NAS are good, but these are always influenced by the installed HDD.
