Graft Post About SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick Still Makes Good Points

Stuck at the bottom, after you’ve been convinced, is this shit that should have been at the top:

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of SanDisk . The opinions and text are all mine.

SanDisk’s Connect Wireless Stick Is A Storage Problem Solver

Still, this is a good point, among several:

For context, right now on my desk is a OnePlus One, Moto X Play, Honor 7, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy Note 5. Now, all of these devices I have to spend some time with to be able to write about them. See how they hold up when at the gym, test what battery life I am getting and generally get a more hand-on feel for them. The problem is that they do not have my data on them. If I take the Galaxy Note 5 to the gym today, all my music is stored locally on my daily driver so I have noting to listen to. Well, this is where I have found the biggest use for the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick. Any files you send to this stick can be accessed by any and all devices that you have.

I was thinking about that stick and iOS use last night. I must still investigate that in detail.

Now is a good time to remind everyone of this: FTC Disclosure.

Yes, I just verbed a noun. Because.

How It Works In The Real World

IFA is this week and there’s already been a bunch of product announcements.

Announce any damn thing you want, companies. But if you can’t get it on the shelves of a physical store, it doesn’t matter.

Here is the dream world of the so-called Rational Techie:

1) Product announcement

2) Read Internet hype

3) Compare specs to current devices

4) Decide to buy

5) Note launch date

6) Order online

7) Boom. Done.

8) Return to Amazon/vendor if disappointed
