Former Apple executive Tim Bucher’s Lyve Minds is starting to sell its first product, the personal media backup device LyveHome.
Lyve Minds, the personal media startup founded by former Apple (S AAPL) exec Tim Bucher, is opening up pre-orders for its Lyve Home device on April 22nd, according to a newsletter sent out to subscribers Tuesday. Lyve Home, which helps to back up photos and synchronize them across your devices, will sell for $300, and the company just previewed some of its functionality in a stylish new YouTube video. Lyve Minds was previously known as Black Pearl Systems, and Bucher told me all about his plans at CES.
Former Apple (S AAPL) executive Tim Bucher has teamed up with Qualcomm (S QCOM) to build the first product of his new personal media storage startup Lyve Minds, Gigaom has learned. Qualcomm’s chips are being used inside of the company’s LyveHome device, which will go on sale some time this spring for $300. Both companies are set to announce the partnership later this week at CES in Las Vegas. LyveHome also uses a hard drive from Seagate, (S STX) which is a strategic investor in Lyve Minds. Check out my recent video interview with Bucher.
