I'm not entirely sure but I believe it is a Wi-Fi hard drive that is you can conduct time-based backups directly to with a program on OS X.

No it's something you get to put all your music on that you purchased with the $10,000 iTunes cards and THEN in 20 years you get to open up the files and play them.
