Just because you’re lying on a beach enjoying a well-deserved vacation doesn’t mean you have to stop working!


One of the biggest obstacles in traveling is not being able to take everything you may need, especially work documents. But the right portable hard drive is like a bottomless suitcase … as long as what you’re packing is digital. This can be especially useful for photographers, who can empty a day’s worth of gorgeous memories onto the drive and start fresh the next day.


But choosing the right external hard drive depends on how you’ll use it, and a good one for the office may not be so good for traveling.


Like other tech-heads before us, we’re suggesting the 2TB Backup Plus Slim from Seagate. Named the Best Portable Hard Drive by Wirecutter, the Seagate has one of the lowest failure rates on the market, and is also one of the lightest, making it ideal for travel. It’s compatible with Mac or PC, and even lets you back-up from either your computer or mobile device with the free Mobile Download App. And thanks to the 3.0 USB connectivity, you don’t have to worry about plugging it in or excessive wires — it gets its power straight from the computer.


Don’t use a relaxing vacation as an excuse to skip out on your job — get back to work!

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
