Kingston Wi-Drive ( 32GB)
Compact, Internet-ready, and well-designed, the Wi-Drive makes a convenient companion for frequent travelers who have from one to three tablets and a moderate library of digital content.
Drobo ( Second generation)
The second-generation Drobo adds a FireWire 800 connection, but the original USB-only on the now discounted Drobo might be the best bet for Windows users until better FireWire 800 drivers arrive. The device remains the most automated and easy-to-use redundant backup product we've seen.
