My Favorite Things: Western Digital My Passport Portable Hard Drive
I love them – all sizes, brands, I never discriminate. But I recently made my first portable purchase, the Western Digital My Passport Essential 320 GB USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive (in Intense Blue!). The lure of taking my iTunes songs and apps with me was the initial reason, although I’ve started a daily backup of current active files which are transferred to my weekly full backup (on a LaCie Porche Drive) and my monthly full disk backup (WD My Book 500 GB). I also bought a case, which carries the drive and cord, my aircard, headphones, a thumb drive and my iPhone connection cord. All neat and clean.
Of course, like all good addicts, I’m already planning my next hard drive purchase, which is a 1TB Apple Time Capsule (I see it as the final – Really! – purchase). Then I set up Time Machine and I’m done.
After all, I can stop any time I want to…
