Now here is a device for all my relatives that seem to accomplish all computer related tasks by calling me. The device is a simple 40 GB USB storage backup for all your photos. No need to schedule anything or install any software, just plug it in and it will find all your photos and save them. They say it can also be used with internet sharing and printing services.
The simplicity is great, if that is all you are looking for. The problem with these single purpose devices is that they could have a number of applications, but by making them single purpose they take all the possibilities away from you. Still, if a simple photo backup solution is what you are looking for, this is it. Comes in black or white and will be available in the next three months for $129.
