Grab something like this, and one of those USB 2Tb HD enclosures, then sync them all with your smart phone one a 4G SP. You can take your whole digital life with you anywhere in a small bag. I think this will be the new model for many. The Smart phone is already there sync everything to a portable HD with a touch display, and ready network access anywhere. What else could anyone need especially at USB 30 and 4G speeds. When you wanna run even lighter keep it all synced with you smart phone 24/7 your digital information is never more than a foot from you for everything.
Sorry Boss! We didn't get the account!
Because the 5:30 Meeting on the HD cam freaked out the Japanese investors because of that huge zit that I wasn't able to cover up took up half the screen.
And I didn't understand what they were saying when they kept screaming "Gojira?"
