Right, that's what I meant, that it creates it's own wifi network. That's the same thing that the Goflex Satellite does. I'll admit those kinds of devices are handy for offline use, I just am never offline when I need to access my media and files.Originally Posted by yof
Yeah, I don't really use physical connections for much other than a quick transfer from a storage device to my iPad. That's really it at the moment. I haven't found much of any other use than that. I also will use Safari Download Manager to download certain files to my iPad and then transfer them from my iPad to a storage device via a physical connection. I don't even really use the "direct from storage device" method for loading ROMs when I play them. I prefer a local location of the ROMs because of how the interface is when your playing them. I could very easily disconnect the CCK with the flash drive or SD card otherwise. And I dont have to worry too much about transfer back and forth.
So all you use them for are streaming movies? Where do you get your movies from? I use my WD MBL to store a decent amount of movies; both DRM protected iTunes ones and DVD back-ups, a decent amount of music; iTunes purchases, mix-tapes, CD back-ups, etc., a decent amount of ebooks; both ePub and PDF forms, a decent amount of other videos; music videos, people speaking, short films, documentary type things, teaching videos, etc., and documents.
I'm still mainly in the storing up and setting up stage of really utilizing all of my media and files. I'm tying to get everything in order right now.
I'm still trying to find sources for media and files and discover uses for them. I'm also still looking in to applications and packages for certain uses and seeking out devices and accessories to use with my iPad in as many ways as I can that would be practical to me.
I'm really wanting to get a MacBook Pro and possibly some of the new Adobe software.
But anyway, I just want to focus on doing what I can for now and being content with that. I just haven't been feeling that good for about a week and have kind of gotten sidetracked from what I was doing.
