IMO, both of these devices are limited and overpriced compared to other offerings. And each device's limitations feed into Sandisk's own market; selling more flash memory.
The flash drive model doesn't accept SD cards (like from most cameras); only micro SD.
The media drive won't accept anything other than flash media cards (buy some more cards…).
Kingston MobileLite Wireless, Sanho iUSBport, (and a few others) offer greater flexibility by accepting a wider range of media (e.g., flash media, hard drives, card readers).
"Great news. We sold out to Yahoo. Our software is no longer available for sales, support, updates. We'll keep it available in iCloud for owners. Bye!" (that's basically what they said)
Really? I guess they sold it and walked. Even Yahoo doesn't know what they're going to do with it. Or was this just really poor communication?
It seems a bit of a bird flip to existing users.
As uptight as DPR has been over the years about other's use of THEIR "proprietary content", it's pretty amazing you're now promoting jailbreaking. Shame, shame.
One comment. Placing the iPhone in Airplane Mode turns off the built-in GPS. Any photos taken in this mode will not be geo-tagged using the iPhone's GPS. However, WiFi may be separately enabled while in Airplane Mode.
If I don't need to be in touch, I'll instead disable voice and data roaming and network connections in Settings, and only place the phone in Airplane Mode when on downtime or charging.
