I’ll admit to having some storage issues on my iPhone 5, but that’s mostly due to the games I have installed. However I know that there are also plenty of users out there who tend to fill up their devices with photos, music, and movies; and they’re exactly the sort of users LaCie wants to help with the Fuel.
The Fuel is a 1TB (1 Terabyte, as in 1,000 gigabytes) wireless storage device for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. It allows for up to 500 movies, 160,000 songs, or 190,000 photos in total. That’s a lot of storage! It also lets you share that data with up to five devices at one time, as well as stream content to Apple TV or external speakers using AirPlay. And as I’ve said; it’s totally wireless. It also offers a USB connection if you’d prefer to guarantee a steady data stream and doesn’t require an internet connection for wireless transfers.
The LaCie Fuel will be available through various retailers as well as the official site soon for $199.99.

A fantastic drive for those willing to give up physical size and deal with a couple hiccups for storage space. This 1TB drive holds hundred of movies all streamable to any iOS device with the Seagate Media app.
