Time to (Transporter) Sync Your Files

Transporter_Sync_-_Front_LR_1024x1024A few months ago I wrote up a review of the original Transporter which allows any user to set up his or her own cloud network for file storage.  Some may view the device with a wary eye as it costs about $199 with a 500GB hard drive.  The price point may have been off putting for some but with the Transporter Sync, there’s really no excuse to not free yourself from certain cloud storage services that cannot guarantee 100% privacy and charge recurring fees.  The device can be pre-ordered directly (at this time) from Connected Data and is slated to ship on 11/15.

Your Own Private Cloud – Transporter

The calendar year is 2013. Cloud is all the rage and so is crowdfunding. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised when a Kickstarter project like the Transporter came along but I was – very pleasantly. In the past, like many folks, I’ve depended solely on cloud storage providers like Dropbox, Google Drive and Skydrive.

In the week that ended with bad jokes about 420, it was pretty uneventful. A few games were announced for 2013. And betas were opened for all the world to see. We also got a brief walkthrough of Pax East from our very own Steph, who was featured on Xplay!

So, let’s look at the week that was, in case you missed it!

CES 2012: LG’s Got Their Eyes on the Prize

CES 2012: LG’s Got Their Eyes on the Prize

 

LG was honestly the best booth to visit during CES 2012 for the sheer fact that their TVs had a brilliantly crisp, vibrant, and bright display. Their 3D displays were the most immersive I had seen throughout the convention floor and I honestly hope the images below are able to showcase how freaking awesome the world’s thinnest 55 inch OLED really is. LG’s booth not only showcased their TVs but a few really cool products for both casual and hardcore gamers alike.
