Coolers (are) were one of those rare items that did not change much over the past 30 years of technological advancements!

ioSafe Rugged Portable 1 TB External Hard Drive (USB 3.0)
With so much data floating around, backups are no longer a luxury, but a must! Think about all those pics from your smartphone, all those videos with your kids, documents, contacts, personal files, music and the list goes on and on … I am not going to stress more the data backup importance, because I know you do it! Don’t you?

On the other hand I am going to speak about the safety of your backups! Let me start with a little story – a friend of mine, a real geek, used to keep not 1, not 2, but 3 backup sets for all his data (including his smartphone, tablet and his home and work laptops). One day, the inevitable happened, and his apartment got flooded by the neighbor above. He called the guy, they stopped the flood and the neighbor helped him clean the apartment. All good until now. This is when the disaster happened! He opened his laptop but it was not working. It was full of water. He grabbed his girlfriend’s laptop which was not water damaged, he opened his desk to grab one of his backup HDD’s to copy some files and … Surprise! As all three of his backup HDD’s were on the lowest shelf of his desk, they were all water damaged!

So here you have a geeky guy who knew the importance of backups, with 1 set of original data and 3 sets of backups who lost all his digital life because the neighbor in the apartment above! Imagine that!
The good news is that in the end he was able to recover most of his data from the damaged HDD’s! The bad news is that this could happen to anyone, including you!

ALSO CHECK the ioSafe Waterproof, Fireproof 3TB External Hard Drive (SK3TB Solo G3) and the Rugged Portable LaCie HDD With USB 3.0 & Thunderbolt we featured earlier.

All this to say that backups are not enough to protect your data. You should also take steps to protect your backup drives from thieves and the elements! You can do this the hard way (as I do it) by using two encrypted HDD’s and always having one at a remote location (work, a friend, family member) or the simple way, by using disaster proof hard drives!

The ioSafe rugged portable 1TB external hard drive is one of the top disaster proof HDD‘s out there! The drive works on MAC and PC (USB 2.0, USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt) features a full metal jacket that protects it against the elements, crushes and drops. The HDD mechanism inside the metal jacket is fully suspended in all 6 motion axes, so it will survives extreme shocks under most circumstances. The HDD is rated to with crush protection up to 5,000 lbs (2,267 KG), drop protection up to 20′ (that’s 6 meters), 30′ (9.15 meters) deep submersion in salty/fresh water for up to 3 days, full immersion in various liquids including diesel, oils, fuels, hydraulic fluids, continuous exposure to UV, blowing sand, blowing dust, rain, salt fog, icing or freezing rain. All this without loosing not even one byte of data!
Regarding the anti theft protection, the ioSafe PA51000U3YR features a solid Kensington Lock compatible slot which should be enough to discourage a dishonest person as well as a theft protection software which allows full drive AES encryption.

That’s the good part about it! The bad part is that this ioSafe beast comes with a premium price of $600! Well … you probably see it as premium because you didn’t hit the floor yet, but, if you already lost your data once, you know it’s a real bargain!!! Check it out and let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I am curious to see how do you manage your backup drives

Sony DEV-50V-B Or How To Record What You See With Binoculars
If you ever wondered how to record all the amazing things and situations you see with your binoculars here’s the answer: Digital Recording Binoculars.
While you can also use a cheaper solution like a smartphone kit such as Snapzoom which will connect your iPhone (or any other smartphone) to a pair of binoculars and allow you to use your phone’s camera to record whatever it’s on the other end, digital recording binoculars are a more adequate solution for the traveling, storage and high definition distance recording.
