The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Just about the only use I can think for it is to plug in a USB stick for files you want visible over your home network. It's very slow and is not substitute for a proper NAS box connected via one of the gigabit ports. So I would say it's of rather limited use.

Does it output enough mA to power a Raspberry Pi?

Sounds interesting. Might make a useful place to put my music? Controllable from laptop, tablet or phone?
