@Cabe, thanks for the post. In today's connected worl transporter will allow the user to share photo albums and videos privately with family by just sending them a link. Thus there is no need of uploading our private data to a remote server using a third-party service like Dropbox. Transporter can be a complete replacement for services like Dropbox.

A whole lot easier to use then setting up a machine to share the files.

I agree AnandY.  This is really needed!  Dropbox is great but, as Cabe mentioned in the article (or is it an ad?), most cloud services have too many pifalls if you're working with sensitive and creative information.  $400 for 2TB is worth it!

Anandy,

I currently pay $7 a month for Dropbox.

With the transporter, I pay the $400 for the device plus $50-100 for a harddrive. Comparatively, 6 years of Dropbox useable. Except that I do not have to deal with hackers, protecting the base station, planning redundancy. And in the end, 6 years from now, what will be available?

Nadine,

This is definitely not an ad. Although, my boasting of Dropbox may seem like it.

I will gladly take some incentive from Dropbox at this point. Dropbox?  :)

What pitfalls do you face?

Even though the article is definitely not an ad, it seems like you are a fan of Connected Data. And I can see why! You certainly make a good case for it, and people for sure need better protection over their private data stored in the cloud. This is a good union.

This thing looks great. Hopefully the prying eyes of all the snoops at google, NSA, etc can be kept out of it.

Does the device need to be hard wired via RJ-45?  Is wireless available? How does one handle redundancy? Is there a single point of failure? One would have to be concerned about fire or theft of the device.
