LAS VEGAS, CES 2013 – CES isn’t just about the big names. We ran into the folks from Nifty Mini Drive, a successful Kickstarter project which is about to go on general sale. The Nifty is a tiny dongle which house a microSD card, and then slots into your MacBook’s SD card slot.
If you were short-sighted enough to have bought a 128GB or smaller MacBook Air then you’ll constantly be running up against storage limits. The nifty does exactly what an SD card would do – add extra space – only it sits flush with the side of the computer so you can leave it permanently attached.
It’s like adding an extra (slower) SSD to your Mac.
The Nifty comes with a little hook to pull it out (due to size constraints there’s no push-to-eject mechanism), and you can of course swap in extra drives as you like.
Want one? You can pick one up at
the end of the month in Feb/March for $40.
