This week Ian and Ben are joined by Frank and Doug returns. After playing catch up and some random tangents, Ian brings us the news.

PewDiePie urges fans to sign up for YouTube Red to defend creators from ad blocking. YouTube Red: Why You Need to Pay Attention.

Feds to require drone registration after close calls. Google gets back into podcast distribution with Google Play Music Podcasts. Is it Miitomo you’re looking for? Nintendo unveils its first smartphone game. Ancient bacteria help create self-ventilating sportswear.

Frank also stirs up some discussion on the upcoming ballot to legalize marijuana in Ohio.

Ben shares the Dragon’s Lair: The Movie Kickstarter with us.

On to our main topic this week, Ben’s been looking at storage solutions and considering NAS, though he’s been debating if it’s right for him and what sort of setup he should use. Lon Seidman on YouTube has a playlist discussing NAS that’s been informative.

He also has one covering the Western Digital My Cloud, a device Ben’s been considering.

Still debating the speed differences between a USB RAID drive or the various NAS solutions out there, Ben asks the panel for their suggestions. Should he buy a consumer/prosumer unit or build a custom rig with something like FreeNAS? Tested has a write up on creating such a server and even a video for it.

Of course there’s no end to tutorials and ideas to be found online.

Finally everybody hunkers down for some Halloween trivia. Who will emerge victorious this week? Tune in to find out!
