More Drive Space For Your iPad

September 7, 2010 21:08:36.011

This is a cool sounding device, but while I was reading it, I was thinking about the old days of DOS hard drives a bazillion partitions:

After you've loaded the HyperDrive with your media, you connect it to your iPad with a USB cable and an Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit. While the Camera Connection Kit traditionally allows you to connect your iPad to SD cards and self-powered USB devices, it also has a disk-size limit of 32GB, which makes it impossible to connect standard USB hard drives. The HyperDrive works around this limit by turning its individual file folders into virtual 32GB drives that are each separately readable by the iPad.

Back to the future!

Why oh why did Steve insist on a 32GB limit and why oh why is Steve forcing us to use the photo app to transfer files? Steve, loosen your control just a little bit and I'll like my iPad even more. iOS4.2 could be the that start of that process.
