Chapter 6. The Removable Drive

Chapter 6. The Removable Drive

Given the praise heaped upon the iPod for its musical capabilities, it's easy to overlook the fact that it's more than a music player equipped with a hard drive. The iPod is also a capable FireWire/USB 2.0 drive that happens to play music. This distinction may not seem terribly important until the day you're sitting in front of an Apple PowerBook whose hard drive has suddenly gone south while your co-workers—many of whom have flown in from overseas—anxiously await the now-vanished PowerPoint presentation you slaved over for the past six weeks.

If you'd set aside a portion of your white iPod for a system capable of booting your Mac and a teensy bit more room for a copy of PowerPoint and that presentation, what could have been a disaster would turn into an opportunity to demonstrate why you're more deserving of an executive parking space than that schlep Henderson, who smells of garlic and routinely pinches your yogurt from the office mini-fridge.
