Why are Technology Manufacturers pumping out devices that just don't make any sense at all. As some of you may know CES 2013 happened recently. JESAonline has found two gadgets at CES 2013 that leave us scratching our heads.
The first gadget is the 27” Tablet PC from Lenovo. Isn't the whole point of having a tablet style device to be able to carry it around anywhere because of its small, light, and sleek profile? Just because it is not “Laptop” doesn't mean that it is a good idea to create a large and heavy Tablet. If someone wanted something like that, they'd lug around an all-in-one desktop system everywhere. Lenovo, what are you thinking?
The second gadget that JESAonline thinks is a bad idea is the Kingston 1 TB Flash Drive. Isn't the idea of the Flash Drive for temporary storage of data, so that you can sneaker-net it to another PC without having to burn the data to a CD? Kingston is touting their New TB Flash Drive as a “good” way to backup all of your pictures, music, data, and documents. What they fail to mention is that if you do not eject the Flash Drive properly or get it near any electromagnetic device, you will not only loose one file on it, you have a potential of losing all of your data! Making this Flash Drive more unreliable than a standard hard drive. We get that Flash Drives are uber-portable because of its size, but there is still the potential for losing your valuable data. Our suggestion has always been to only use Flash Drives for temporary storage. If you are looking to backup your valuable data, it is best to do this with an Online Backup Service, like our preferred service from CloudZow, this way you have redundant servers away from your premise to store the data. You can also access your data anywhere and is easy to restore all of it to a new PC or Hard Drive.
