David,

I must be missing something. I don't see a connection between the two links and how the codecs in one relate to the product in the other. I didn't see the Bella product (Catapult) mentioned in the second link you gave. What am I missing?

Thanks,

- Jesse

BTW, they should sell a million of these when released. I have several small (40-60GB) USB drives. I didn't think that USB supported data transfer rates that were high enough for DV.

Page 3 of the review

Page 1 reviews the Citidisk, Page 2 reviews the FireStore FS-4 and Page 3 talks about (but does not review) the Catapult. Are you able to see page 3?

Thanks David,

The end of the article was so busy, I didn't notice the links to the other pages.

If this thing is what it promises to be - it is going to be a good alternative to what is on the market now. But I'll believe it first when it starts shipping.

Competition drives the price down and quality up

I'm wondering if Focus Enhancements responds to this. Will they lower the price? Move some pro features over to the standard unit (like time lapse and adjustable buffer)? Fix some glaring deficiencies?

How about someone just write an app for http://ipodlinux.org/Main_Page to run on the iPod and the iPod alone, no extra anything?

That would be cool!

Once again, the Ipod is not meant to be a constant spinning HDD. It is meant as an ACCESS drive. It is not cooled properly, etc. to run as a capture device. This is nothing more than a novelty.
