Idea good. Design fugly. Wish the had designed it as one of there external hard drive cases rather then just a dock.

it will only be worth it if the wifi can connect to your existing network (or connect through lan cable), that is to act as a NAS, so you dont have to switch wifi networks every time you want to access the hard drive. otherwise it would just create a hassle dealing with multiple networks rather than making things easier!

Yes, you can be connected to internet with this device. It is said at the end of the promo video.

I don't think apple will let you do that only files like documents , pdf, etc.

Apple doesn't control your external hard drive. You will be able to access anything on it.
