A good one mind you, but not somethign that should be left to one developer.
Me neither, but apparently a judge thought it was patentable and got an injunction to keep it off the market. Buffalo doesn't have the legions of attorneys that a large company like Apple has, so they had to fold, give in on that issue, and move on.

Hopefully because Apple is in this fray now, other HDD makers will step in and start making wireless NAS devices. Preferably with decent security (WPA-2 support.)
