Those who travel for business pack differently than those who travel for pleasure. Waiting in security lines, fighting for overhead space, and checking out in time for an 8:30AM meeting gets old really quick when you have to do it more than once a week.
One way to make business travel easier is to pack as light as possible. Another is to "maximizing function while minimizing size"... especially when it comes to devices. We have been road-testing some new gadgets to see if they would lighten our load.
One item we took with us on this trip was the Edge's diskGO 64GB flash drive. Just a few years ago, 40GB of data had to be stored on a spinning hard drive which was about 20x heavier, had to be inside a computer, and cost about 3x as much.
Today, 64GB of data can be stored on a flash drive just 2" big. The drive is USB powered, entirely solid state, and about 100x more shock resistant than a drive with moving parts. 64GB is a LOT of storage space. It is enough for all of our business documents, presentations, and proposals. At some point, all drives will be solid state. This means everything requiring storage will be lighter, smaller, and more portable. Folks who have to travel for business are eagerly looking forward to that day. [Permalink] - diskGO 64GB Flash
