Transporter Private-cloud Appliance
Thinking of giving up cloud storage after reading about the pervasive NSA spying? Turns out you may not have to with the Transporter, a novel network-attached device that lets users easily and cheaply build their own private cloud storage service. The concept revolves around the Transporter Sync ($99), which connects to a USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 external hard drive, or the Transporter ($199 for 1TB), which houses a 2.5-inch HDD internally. Selected folders can be synchronized between a PC and a Transporter, or between two Transporters — effectively creating a robust private cloud storage service without needing to be an IT expert.
