Why are you still buying outdated tech?
>Read/writes near the performance of SATA SSDs
If by "near" you mean "not even remotely close" then sure.
They're most than fast enough, sure, but not even their sequential speeds are anywhere close to a SATA 3 SSD.
>Because i want my data even when google drive's servers crash
>because the janitor had to charge his phone.
Stupidest fucking thing I've read all day. Even for hyperbole that's so retarded.
>i dont want to pay 9000 shekels for internet speeds similar to USB data transfer
>if USB data transfer speeds are unattainable, why would i even use a slower form of data storage?
>all this asspain because you're retarded
USB3.1 stuff is just now starting to trickle out, Samsung is just getting their feet wet with 3D stacking of NAND and DRAM, Toshiba and Micron are only slightly behind.
New drives will have the same encryption thats becoming increasingly common, storage densities will be higher, and over all performance will go through the roof. The Max throughput of a 3.1 drive should be something north of 800mb/s accounting for overhead. Even if you were moving 4K movies back and forth thats incredibly fast.
I can't see something like this falling out of use ever. Even 4gb USB2.0 drives are handy still. Plus some of them just look fucking cool.
I'm always finding a need for more and more flash drives.
I actually need to just buy a big bag of 2G flash drives and put all the random OSs, WinDOS, and partition managers I need on them.
>at work today
>overhear someone talking unironically
>"yeah we are getting our data from the cloud"
who /voyagergo/ here? I use it instead of a cable to move things to my phone now since [spoiler]os x[/spoiler] android file manager a shit
Because my upload speed is 2Mbps. Until ISPs stop fucking us in the ass over upload/download speeds and limits, flash drives will continue to be vastly superior to online storage.
Can't believe microSDs are almost up to 200GB. After such a long time to jump from 64GB to 128GB.
But most large companies are going towards hybrid based cloud storage depending on their needs.
Private cloud for all that really secure shit and 3rd party services for less so.
I prefer compliant solid state drives to le cloud any day
jump drive is an actual model (pic related)
pen drive is ye olde skoole
flash drive is the "proper" slang term
Ideally I would make it more fine grained.
e.g., I have one place where I run some of my code but never modify it, so I have a key on their with read-only privileges in gitolite.
so you don't have an android phone? casual
Seriously a few days ago I nioticed you can get a very high quality (robust, should last forever) 16gb USB stick for just a few bucks.
I'm going to load some linux distros and other random shit (some music) on there, basically a sufficient computing environment for me if things hit the fan and my other devices break.
really fucking excited about this.
Also on that list:
3. Bottled water
6. Memory sticks and thumb drives
7. Mini tablets
8. Paid online dating services
10. 4K Televisions
Confirmed for retarded. Author was probably just trying as hard as he could to come up with something to put on the list.
because the cloud doesn't let me have 16gb dedicated to a Loonix install with another 16gb left for storage that I can access through USB 3 speeds even without internet access.
Please tell me where I can buy a not trash tier USB 3 external hard drive that won't break if it gets dropped for $30 because all I see are shitty USB 2 Storite external hard drives on newegg.
Coles Natural Spring Water
The major brands that describe themselves as "spring" or "mineral" water are genuine natural spring water, including Mount Franklin, Fiji Water, Pump and the Coles and Woolworths home brands.
But supermarket and convenience stores stock brands that describe themselves as "purified" or "organic" and are in fact the same water available in every home for less than one cent a litre.
Filtered tap water - brands such as Aqua Pura, Mizone, Noble's Pureau, Nature's Best Organic, Active Organic and Refresh - are sold in Coles, Woolworths, Franklins and IGA as well as petrol stations and convenience stores.
What you put into your body affects how you feel and think.
I wonder how long before everything will be cloud based including OS's themselves.
Just onLive-like streaming for the most barebones work (or rather "entertainment" seeing how it's less and less only about doing work) -stations, with little subs here and there (more like everywhere, am I rite G-men?).
That would be something.
Also, TOS could be written so that end user (lender of the limited license) ends up not owning shit, his work included. This could work, right?
According to Coles themselves: Our National Quality team has advised that Soda Water is made from tap water which is then carbonated by our supplier, whereas natural spring mineral water is source from a naturally carbonated spring. Both go through the same filtration systems and sterilisation measures to ensure the best quality.
Coles has done recalls on their bottled water due to algae. They provide genuine spring water as opposed to tap water which typically has a very strange taste. There are some parts of Australia where the tap water tastes ok but I prefer spring water.
>buy a 32GB one of these for $20
>25mb/s write 130mb/s read from USB3 port
>copy 20gb of music to my car's stereo in 5 minutes
>buy another one to plug into router's USB2 port
>instant 20mb/s read/write 32gb NAS
>tfw still have a 4 year old 2.0 usb 16gb flash drive
Never go past 5 mb/s
Don't really feel like upgrading either, as it's just for some document backups, which generally dont take up much space.
This thing is smaller and lighter than my keys. What happens when you can't connect to cloud?
I got two of those and for some reason I always got trouble when mounting them on windows no matter what machine it is, they have to be slightly pulled away to be recognized, it that wasn't a problen and they came in usb 3.0 they'd be glorious.
>falling for the cloud jew
btw i just finished painting a cheap 1Gb stick with glossy white paint, it looks radically different. i'm gonna try some other colors with another.
I have a new DVD-RW drive that I keep in it's box and have never actually installed in my system.
I use it never, so the extra weight / cabling in the case seems like a bigger disadvantage than having it installed.
>A CD will never go bad no matter how long the use or if you take it out when it's running. If you treat a cd good it'll last forever.
but internet upload speeds are completely shit in the U.S., transferring RAWs from my laptop to my desktop could take an hour or more using cloud storage with my shitty 5Mbps upload speeds
