Wireless hard disk
Music, photos and especially HD videos are memory hogs. Tablets are the exception with 64 gigabytes, because manufacturers long down neatly: 16 gigabyte cost iPad 2 up to 100 euros. Seagate GoFlex satellite offers 500 gigabyte space and is the first external hard drive for Tablet PCs, smartphones, and almost all Wi-Fi-enabled devices. Up to three devices at the same time access via b/g/n standard on the plate (of course this also applies to net and notebooks). Via Wi-Fi or Internet, it should also be possible from outside with the plate in the domestic network to connect.
So that it works, the free app GoFlex media should be installed. But also with the Web browser. The little box generates an own Wi-Fi hotspot. Caution: The password function is out of House disabled! Everyone connected to this wireless network has access to the data and can stream as videos or music or look at pictures. Disadvantage: For access to the Internet you must connect again with another network. The connection via app as well as via the browser worked easily in the practice test. HD movies have been transferred smoothly over about 40 meters through a wall. Where: everything plays off your device, can be streamed.

It would be much easier to realize both network connection and the data connection via Mini – or micro-USB. Anyway: an adapter for the cigarette lighter in the car is located at.
