You know when you’re in line at a convenience store, ready to pay for your Hello Panda/YanYan and the girl behind you is just standing EXTREMELY close her bag is touching your butt and you just look at them like WHATTHEFUCK?? Well, some people just have no concept of personal space. Thank goodness Western Digital does and it’s called MyCloud.
It’s like an iCloud or Dropbox minus the monthly/yearly fees! For example, if you get 2TB storage from Dropbox, you’ll pay about $200 (roughly Php9,000) every year. With WD MyCloud, you only pay once (#YOPO lol) when you buy it. It retails for Php7,990.
Very pretty too! I installed mine last week, all I had to do was connect it to my router and follow WD’s setup wizard.
I am now able to access my files anywhere on any device. Plus, you can add multiple users so your family and friends can access your public folders. I’m planning to create a shared folder for movies with my siblings! For all your personal stuff, just make sure you fix the settings so that only you or a few chosen can access certain folders.
Such a cute commercial to explain WHY there’s a need for this product even when there are public clouds available online. Safety is a priority for me! With all the hacked clouds and leaked photos lately, you can’t really trust a public cloud. I don’t have any naked photos I need to protect LOL but I’ve got a ton of documents with personal information and diary entries I wouldn’t want other people to see. Nakakahiya yung mga emo rants ko. Hehehe.
Here’s a video with an even better explanation of how MyCloud works
I’ve been using a portable hard drive to transfer movies/TV shows from my laptop so I can watch them on my actual TV. It’s not a huge hassle but now I can forego the usual blind tinkering with the back of my TV to look for the correct USB port. My TV is Internet ready – most of the new ones are – so I just need to connect it to MyCloud and I can access all the media files I want! I expected it to buffer or something since it’s a cloud but in fairness I’ve experienced no such thing.
It’s the first day of a new month, I think you guys deserve something clean and new. That’s why I’m giving away a 2TB MyCloud.
