I’ve always been a fan of the TV programThe Twilight Zone. In the mid ‘80s, when I was furiously taping every movie I liked even just a little bit, The Twilight Zone was broadcast two and sometimes three times a night, so I taped those episodes, too. Did you know that there were 156 episodes of that program? And did you know that one season consisted of hour-long episodes? Most people don’t know that, but I do, because I taped almost every one of them—I’m missing maybe four episodes. Unfortunately, those old tapes are pretty much unwatchable today.

Portable hard drives are everywhere these days. Everyone has one, and most people are looking for something with greater capacity. One deterrent to purchases, though, is that interfaces keep changing as faster ones come to market. Happily, Seagate’s GoFlex portable hard drives feature a standard USB 2.0 interface, but can be upgraded later on.
There was a time when only very large corporations needed RAID storage. RAID storage is still used by large corporations, but today you’ll also find small businesses and individual users taking advantage of its features. Data Robotics’ Drobo storage arrays make affordable entry points to failsafe storage, and they’re made all the more affordable with the instant savings you can get from B&H until the end of June.
