External storage solutions provider Western Digital (WD) hosted its Connected Life home tour recently to show Malaysians the day-to-day benefits offered by its latest products.

During the tour in mid-October, WD director of sales & marketing, Asia Pacific, Craig Davis, said that as well as offering cloud connectivity, the WD portfolio's flagship is the My Book Live personal cloud storage, available in capacities ranging from 1 TB [terabyte] to 3 TB, which joins the company's recently launched mobile apps WD 2go Pro, WD 2go and WD Photos, allowing users access to data on a My Book Live from a mobile device anywhere in the world as long as they have an Internet connection.

Davis said the device could also pair the My Book Live with a WD TV Live or WD TV Live Hub streaming media player to stream personal videos, photos and music to any TV in the home.

He added that for data access outside the home, users would need a mobile device or laptop computer with an Internet connection, and the WD 2go apps. WD 2go is available for free, and WD 2go Pro costs US$2.99, which gives users the ability to clip content to the mobile device and print or e-mail their files to friends and family directly from their mobile devices. WD Photos is also specifically designed to push and pull photos from mobile devices to the My Book Live.
