I just bought my first tablet last month before heading out to a tradeshow. It was a great way to check email on the road without hauling around a notebook computer (you see, I don't have a smartphone ). Anyway, although I totally appreciate its coolness factor, I admit, it is now vastly underused. Probably because most of my day is chained to my desktop, I have no desire to boot up the iPad later in the evening. Well, maybe just to check the weather report.
Anyway, I am intrigued by this article in the Wall Street Journal, The Satellite: Extra Storage for Tablets on the Go. Seems that there are a number of people who are running out of storage on their tablets. I have a friend who solves this problem using Dropbox. But these portable Wi-Fi enabled hard drives are definitely intriguing. Especially for someone like me who is still a bit suspicious of the security in "the cloud." This article in the WSJ particularly focuses on the Seagate Satellite but also looks at Hitachi's new G-Connect. Was wondering if anyone out there has one of these, has used one, or designed one. What do you think of it?
