Many of us have gigabytes worth of data stored in various places all over the internet. We have albums worth of photos saved and shared on Facebook. Amazon and Google Play retain copies of digital music, books, and video purchases, which can be accessed remotely. And, of course, we can’t forget comprehensive online storage sites more »
SanDisk is a leader when it comes to flash storage, although they’re still a bit new in the app-creation game. While attending CES 2014, I had the chance to speak one-on-one with SanDisk about the current and upcoming products.

Although storage wars are heating up between Google, Amazon, Dropbox, and such, that hasn’t been stopping consumers from looking into private, more personal ways to harbor data. Whether it’s for security or for more immediate access, external storage devices are growing in popularity. Why worry about what server in whichever state your sensitive information may be located, when you can keep everything at home in something that fits in a pocket?
With all the stories of security breaches and hacked data popping up in the news, one might be concerned about the safety of their personal information on the web. Rightly so, since recovering from such incursions can be an absolute nightmare for normal people with jobs and families.
When it concerns mobile devices, space tends to come at a premium. With so many great and useful apps available, the gradual decline of free space is inevitable. It doesn’t leave much left over for photos, music, or video.

Projectors are oftentimes associated with professional work or school. You know. Presentations in front of groups, or a teacher doing some math work for the entire class to see. Useful? Sure. Fun? Not really.

Although smartphones and tablets are quite versatile for everyday lives, there isn’t really an effective way to move large amounts of data on and off those mobile devices. Sure, there’s cloud storage, but moving GBs of files to your cloud and then downloading it takes a bit of time. Direct wireless connections don’t help much with PCs, and USB cables are so passe.
These days, you can pop onto Amazon and get a 1 Terabyte external hard drive for under $100. And thanks to the advent of the USB Flash drive (or Thumb drive, or Stick, or one of its many other names), you can not only take home 1GB of content in your pocket.
Some awesome electronics deals from around the internet for Valentine’s Day 2014.
