If there is one thing that I wish everyone could be taught, it is the importance of backing up data. With so much of our lives taking place in the virtual world, a loss of data can be catastrophic. Photos, business documents, that video of your dog riding on a skateboard, it can all be […]
As the name suggests, local backup means that the data is stored locally. This means making use of some form of external storage device, such as an external hard drive or NAS (Network-attached Storage). The positive of using a local backup is that you are in control of the data. You aren’t relying on another company holding it for you, and you don’t need to rely on being online all of the time. The most basic way to backup data is to plug in an external USB hard drive and manually copy the data across. This is a lot of work though, and it’s very easy to forget or just start telling yourself that you’ll “do it next week”. Many external drives these days come with automatic software preinstalled on them, which you can utilise to automate the backup process. They are often proprietary pieces of software which all work a little differently (and possibly not exactly the way you want), but they’ll do the job if needed.

The recent rise in wrist-based wearable technology (as described in Part 1 of our series on Wearable Technology) perfectly demonstrates how tech can be easily and non-obtrusively integrated into everyday objects such as what we wear. However wearable technology is certainly not limited to wristwear, as the potential designs are quite exciting and could vastly improve our interactions with technology. An example of wearable tech that could have a wide range of applications are Heads Up Displays.
As technology becomes much faster, smaller, cheaper, and power efficient; the possibilities for it’s integration into our lives increases exponentially. This principle has certainly applied in regards to making innovative technology wearable on a consumer level, developing from science fiction-like ideas, pipe dreams and prototypes, to a reality. This article is the first part in a series on Wearable Technology; first up – keeping updated and maintaining your fitness at the same time.
“Your phone drops onto cold tiles, landing face down. A knot twists in your stomach as you reach for the phone…”
