The Transporter Is A Private, Internet Connected File Storage System [Macworld 2013]

macworldbugSAN FRANCISCO, MACWORLD/iWORLD 2013 – There are plenty of cloud storage solutions out there these days, including services such as Dropbox. Having your files stored on the cloud comes with some downfalls, though, such as monthly payments as well as decreased security. The Transporter, a new device created by the people behind the Drobo tries to give you the best of both worlds.

With the Transporter, you have access to all of your files stored on the device as long as you have an internet connection, but the files themselves aren’t stored in the cloud. By using this approach, you can avoid the hassles of cloud storage while still having the ease of access that services like Dropbox provide.

Tiny USB Thumb Drive Stylish Enough To Penetrate Your MacBook’s Ports

It is with bad memories of Apple’s original iPad case in my mind that I write about Elecom’s Ultra-Compact USB Memory. Forcing that hideous black rubber monstrosity on the beautiful iPad was like marrying a supermodel and forcing her to wear a wetsuit.

But thanks to Elecom, we never need to do this to our svelte MacBooks Air – this tiny USB dongle might be easy ot lose, but until you do, it’ll hand around looking beautiful. Just like that hot model (soon-to-be-ex-) wife of yours.

Former MobileMe Users Find Free 20GB iCloud Storage Extended Until 2050

Former MobileMe Users Find Free 20GB iCloud Storage Extended Until 2050

When Apple was doing its damnedest to kick people out of MobileMe in June this year and get them to use iCloud instead, one of the incentives they gave the soon-to-be disposessed was a free offer that former MobileMe members would get 20GB of iCloud storage gratis, instead of the 5GB Apple gives the rest of us suckers. But it was only for a limited time, until September 30, 2012.

Looks like Apple may have extended their offer, though. Some iCloud usersare now noticing that they’ve got 25GB of iCloud storage to play around with until September 30, 2050, when their free 20GB should have been snatched away from them yesterday. Even more interesting is that some non-MobileMe users are seeing the same deal, and have found themselves getting a free 20GB bump in storage.
