Today the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a case which could limit or even invalidate software patents. Here’s the (surprisingly readable) transcript: http://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/13-298_869d.pdf (69-page PDF)
@seanhussey Noise level is reasonable: quiet fans, drive noise decently muted. It does have a sleep mode which is even quieter, and it stays connected. The software (web-based) is weirdly overdesigned and Windows-desktoppy, but otherwise fine. I'm happy.
@seanhussey Oh! Yeah, it's been great. iTunes is iTunes, though, so you have to watch it and make sure it doesn't reset its media location back to ~/Music. (And make sure you always quit before you disconnect the NAS volume.) iPhoto/Aperture seem fine.
