WD My Passport Wireless: The Personal Cloud You Can Take With You

One of the lessons people are taking from the recent celebrity photo hack, rightly or wrongly, is that you can't trust the cloud. Of course, the question then becomes: Where do you put your digital stuff? WD has an answer for you: My Passport Wireless. The device is a portable hard drive about the size of a paperback book, and it can connect to up to eight different devices simultaneously via Wi-Fi, letting you access your pics (nude selfies or otherwise), videos, music and files anywhere you are. The drive works with PCs and Macs, but it's really meant to work with mobile devices: smartphones and tablets.
