Do you carry your SATA drive around with you wherever you go and attach it to every computer you use?
Yeah, there's a portable SSD in my bag, with eSATA and USB. There's a couple of 64gb SD cards in there too.
It's smaller than my smartphone and a lot more sturdy. It sits in one of those little slots on the side. Never had a problem with it.
I've had enough of trusting companies like Google to always have a particular service available and to keep their snoots out of my stuff.
On the other hand, if a company that doesn't data mine, and encrypts all data and does not acquiesce to NSA requests, then we can do business. But not for free or cheap because of data mining. I don't like F2P. I don't want anything for free. I don't trust anything that's being offered to me for free or for cheap. It just means the true price is hidden and that's creepy.
