Reducing security risks from open source software

Kingston Wi-Drive

32GB or 64GB of Flash storage in a network drive - you connect by 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi - that smaller than a smartphone. Kingston's compact, lightweight kit provides extra storage for content you may want to access on the move - handy if you bought a low-capacity tablet with no SD slot, or you have content that doesn't play in iOS' native players. It's battery powered for use away from the mains. The power pack is good for four hours continuous usage; it's charged through a mini USB port, which is also how you get files onto it. It can connect simultaneously to other wireless networks so your tablet can stay connected to the net.

Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard

RH Numbers

Bluetooth keyboards are ten a penny, but if you find you need to use one regularly, there are better options than a generic BT 'board you can sling into your bag for emergencies. Case in point: Logitech's Ultrathin offering, which locks magnetically onto the front of the iPad 2 and 3 - as per Apple's Smart Covers - to protect the screen. When you want to type, just pull it off, slot the tablet into an angled slot, and you're ready to key in copy. It too works with Bluetooth, and Logitech promises six months of usage from a full charge of the built-in, micro USB recharged battery.
