Hey, I have never set up a true “Home Network” and it is time.  We also currently subscribe to MobileMe as well and it is time to renew.  We no longer carry iPhones but we have 3 iOS devices amongst our devices.

I know over time you guys have talked about various Home Network solutions, from the DROBO, to HP’s E(something), etc. My wife and I both telecommute from home and she is also BIG into documenting our children’s lives via pictures & vid’s.

If and when you have a moment (I know, famous last words for $500) do you have a short version or an article or podcast you could direct me to on the topic?

Thanks in advance,

Kurt Lyon
