In recent past it is observed that people move to cloud storage to get additional space to store their data. While we all know how safe it is to keep things on cloud it also comes with certain demerits. While security of your data on cloud seems to be a constant dilemma; people still opt for it to save some extra money and pain of carrying your hard disk and wire cables.
To solve this problem Western Digital has designed an external Hard Disk that operates wireless called My Passport Wireless. So now you can save your personal stuff in your external hard disk and can easily access the data on your Smartphone, tablet or laptop without putting it on cloud.
