Does your home or office have multiple computers? Do you find yourself sifting through numerous hard drives, flash drives, optical discs, and other storage media to locate files and other data? Centralizing your data to one large disk can help you organize your digital media and save you plenty of time and headaches.
You might think you have way too many files to handle, but do they occupy more than two terabytes of space? If not, then consider relocating them to a 2TB external hard drive. If you do have more than 2TB of data, then you will probably only need another one or two of these hard drives to have your data in as few places as possible to prevent the hunt for important files when you need them most.
Are you paranoid that one of these may fail on you? Invest in another 2TB hard drive during the 2TB for under $100 sale to use as a backup drive. The Fantom GreenDrive Pro has a 2-year limited warranty, so in the unfortunate event that the disk fails, then it will be covered.
If you haven’t networked the computers in your home or office, then you haven’t modernized your computing equipment. Storing your media in one location makes accessing and sharing easier and much more efficient.
The mobility and easy access of USB flash drives make them one of the best candidates for transporting data. We just invested in this 4-pack of Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB flash drives. We use them for school, general data storage, and even to run operating systems like Ubuntu on.
When you have to copy data from one location to another that are not networked, then you will need another fast and reliable method. Uploading and downloading using the internet can take some time and additional effort depending on the resources available. Burning the data onto a recordable disc will also take more time than necessary and then even more time to be copied off that disc onto the machine.
The Generation 3 series of Kingston DataTraveler flash drives exhibits faster read/write speeds than the predecessors. Kingston manufactures dependable computer memory solutions, and their flash drives always go on sale because they are always in demand and constantly being improved. The Kingston DataTraveler line of flash drives are also backed with a five-year warranty, so they’re guaranteed to fulfill your storage needs.
Order yourself a 4-pack of these 4GB flash drives for only $24.95 and free shipping while supplies last. That’s about $6.25 each! If you were to buy individual flash drives of this size and superior quality, then you’ll be looking at spending around $10 each and then possibly sales tax plus shipping. Kingston DataTraveler is the flash drive series I choose to rely on for high-quality, compact disk space.
If you’ve been browsing the web for the best price on an entertainment router with great wireless and wired performance, then your search ends here. Cisco is the leader of networking solutions and have been designing and manufacturing the most dependable routers on the market for many years.
The WRT320N features the power of Wireless-N, lightning fast connections, reliable coverage, and advanced security. The sleek design is very pleasing to the eyes unlike those dinosaur boxes tucked away in a corner covered in dust that most of you might currently own.
I personally own and rely on an older model of the same series of these routers. I have been using it for a couple years now, and it has yet to let me down. If I ever had to invest in another router, then I wouldn’t think twice about which router to choose.
The WRT series of routers has an excellent reputation for being some of the best routers on the market. You might expect to spend more than hundred bucks on one of these true testaments to the world of networking. For a limited time, you can be the proud owner of a Cisco Linksys wireless router for the amazing sale price of $65 with free shipping. Upgrade your router now if you haven’t done so in the past few years and feel the rush of Wireless-N course through the veins of your computer network.
Backing up your data provides you with peace of mind and ensures that in the event of hardware failure, your valuable information can be restored instead of being forever lost. Data can be important documents, priceless digital photographs, your music collection, home videos, and other kinds of formats that keep your life together. The thought of losing everything because you did not back up your data can lead to a whirlwind of frustration.
You should always have at least two copies of your important data. An inexpensive solution is to invest in a 1TB external hard drive on sale for $70 and set up your backup software to copy all of your files to this drive periodically. Depending on your level of paranoia, you may want to do this weekly or even daily.
Storage has become very affordable. A terabyte of disk space can hold more than the average computer user has on their computer’s hard drive. Whether you download episodes of your favorite television shows, catalog all of the music you like, or back up your DVD collection, a 1TB hard drive is a valuable tool in storing and protecting your files. The price is irresistable, and we live in a computing society that has advanced to a point where valuable data should never be lost.
If you don’t use a flash drive as one of your primary methods of portable data storage, then you’re living in the past. Sure, internet clouds and other forms of online storage are available but what if you were unable to access the internet or needed to download a very large file on a time crunch? Consider one of the most cost-effective methods of transporting data that has proved itself time and time again: the USB flash drive.
The Kingston DataTraveler line of USB flash drives are a dependable solution for carrying around data. The physical device has a sturdy loop where a lanyard or a keychain can easily be attached and transported conveniently. This Generation 3 (G3) DataTraveler on sale for $22.95 with free shipping features impressive speeds of 10MB/sec read and 5MB/sec write.
Something I probably haven’t mentioned in posts about Kingston products is their amazing warranties. This 16GB flash drive has a five-year warranty that only proves that this is a great investment in a very useful device manufactured to last you a very long time. Accept no substitutions. Compare the quality of Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives to similar storage devices and experience the highest levels of durability and dependability.
You could be storing up to 16GB of some very important data on one of these little guys, and the last thing aside from misplacing it that you would want to happen is to experience a disk failure. I’ve been using Kingston memory for many years now and turn to them first. They offer the most bang for your buck without skimping on the quality of their products.
When I was growing up, computers weren’t really a mainstay in grade school. We had a computer lab where we would play Oregon Trail and other assorted educational games stored on 5¼” floppy disks. We’d use Big Chief paper in the earlier years to write sentences and wide-ruled paper to write essays in the latter years. Junior high was when I first remember typing papers on a computer and printing them out on a dot matrix printer to turn in for a grade.
Today, the kids and computers have collided to make modern technology necessary in the current educational institution. Everything from educational software to word-processing programs have become much more advanced in the past ten years. Who knows how teaching would have evolved if it wasn’t for computers teaching the today’s teachers now teaching today’s youth.
Data storage has also changed from floppy disks to Zip disks to writable compact discs to now flash drives. One flash drive can last a student his entire grade school career. SanDisk has a 4GB solution on sale for only $9. Add flash drives to your children’s school supply list because they’ll need something to store all of the papers they write and projects they work on. The Back To School sale is in full swing, and the best prices on technology are going on right now.
This is my last Monday before I take on sixteen weeks of a computer-immersed all-day nightmare buffet. Anything productive I do except read comics involves the machines that coexist with us every single second we spend in this parallel. We easily spot those notebooks with those square buttons and flat squares that glow and those boxes that hum with wires attached to another glowing square, but how about all the little ones in appliances and other electronic devices? I don’t have the energy to really get into it. Bedtime.
I’m watching Hard Candy. I remember this movie being a dialog-driven situational mindf–k, and it’s getting that way as this is being typed in another window on the same screen ’cause the JW199D pwnz.
I’ve been doing more relaxing than usual these past couple weeks, but that only means I’ve only left slightly bigger gaps in the whole to-do. I look forward to the next learning phase in the Fall, the second to the last, the heart of what I need to move forward along in my career path (and hopefully some better weather alongside).
The point in my life where I have an idea of what I’m going to do with myself is closer than ever. That happier repetition is just around the corner. A little more mini-golf, a continued indulgence in Texas BBQ and chicken wings, the growth of what has already been going on for decades now: my abstract? Ellen Page’s teenage character in Hard Candy has gone berserk on the guy tied to the chair, and he’s screaming for help.
When I punch the keys, I’m working. Makin’ it rain… peanuts. Actually, it’s much better than I expected ’cause the 4th anniversary of this psyche rummage is next week. Ha! Peace out.
