The Satellite: Extra Storage for Tablets on the Go

The Satellite: Extra Storage for Tablets on the Go, article and video.

It's a good idea: a hard disk which connects via wifi (since most tablets and such don't have USB). The technology seems to be a bit limited so far (you can't be connected with the drive and the Internet at the same time for example), but this is definitely one of the ways pointing out of the limited storage issue on tablets. (Apart from falling prices of solid storage, but Apple and others seem reluctant to give up on the gold mine of charging $100 for $17 worth of extra storage, so that may not go so fast.)

What the heck is the harm in including ONE (or even 2) USB, I wonder. Would be great for a thumb drive...etc.

Very good question.
Perhaps it takes up too much space internally.

Some come with an adapter.

I see.

I was trying to find something that would give you an idea of just how TINY these little super mini drives are getting. SUPER CUTE and...16 GB can fit on it! That's pretty good, I thought!

I just think w/all the personal stuff that a person might not want on a cloud or something.
