USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt peripherals may seem like a dream come true for most people—the transfer speeds of 4.8 Gb/s for USB 3.0 and 10 Gb/s for Thunderbolt, and now 20 Gb/s for Thunderbolt 2 mean that transferring and moving data across multiple devices is up to ten times faster than it used to be.

I hate running out of space. I hate it when packing up my seasonal decorations, I hate it when trying to find a box for my current year’s tax paperwork, I hate it when packing the car when grocery shopping. I hate running out of space, and I run out of space quite often. Yes, you’re right: I could just have less stuff. I could cut down on my clutter and throw out some old stuff and probably set...
