The future of mass storage

This offering from Western Digital, shows a major game changer in the idea of external storage.

This is not a memory stick, it is a SSD external hard drive. Currently 1TB of SSD is around $370 and not available here yet, but soon. As we all know, the size will double over the next few years and I expect by 2020, 4TB will be available.

Much smaller the a WD Book or Cloud Drive this is a game change, more like the size of a memory key.

You cna buy it for around $100 for a 256GB version.
