Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

WD has got itself a portable wirelessly-connecting external drive, the My Passport Wireless drive.

It uses WiFi to connect to “any smartphone, tablet, computer or other device.” It can use USB 3.0 as well as USB 2.0; handy for transferring large files. It broadcasts its own wireless network and allows up to eight devices to connect at the same time. They can access any content stored on the drive.

It has Wireless N with MIMO technology for better wireless performance and has the ability to stream up to four HD videos simultaneously.

Capacity levels are 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. There is a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to six hours of continuous streaming and up to 20 hours of standby power. It has a built-in SD card slot for data transfer from digital cameras and camcorders. Integrated FTP means, WD says, “the drive connects to compatible wireless cameras so that users can automatically transfer photos from their cameras to the drive as they are taking them.”

WD’s My Cloud mobile app “connects to a My Passport Wireless drive for simple product setup, and once setup the mobile app provides intuitive navigation, sharing and playback of the drive's content.”
