"As an all-in-one solution for e-mail, document sharing, intranet applications and Internet connectivity, Cobalt Networks Inc.'s Cobalt Qube 2 Internet appliance is a good starting point for small, technophobic businesses. But any company with technical know-how and a spare system can duplicate all of its capabilities, often with free software."

"The Cobalt Qube 2, which shipped last month with prices starting at $999, uses Linux as its operating system and Apache as its Web server but, as with most Internet appliances, administration is done entirely through a standard Web browser. New features in Version 2 include basic HTML editing, improved dial-up capabilities, added security features such as a basic firewall, and a document management application. Cobalt has also beefed up the Qube's internal hardware to a 250MHz processor and 10GB of hard disk space."
