Late last month, Western Digital issued a warning to registered owners of its external hard drive products about potential data loss with OS X Mavericks -- an issue the company now appears to have corrected.
You've got to hand it to the hard drive storage provider formerly known as Western Digital: They're embracing the cloud in ways other traditional storage companies have not, especially with a new line of drives that connect to the internet with ease.
Western Digital has been making streaming set-top boxes for several years now. Their WD TV line has consistently packed a lot of value into their little black boxes. The latest, called WD TV Play, continues in that tradition, offering a plethora of content options at a lower price-point than some of their competitors.
The Retina MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs are great computers. Whether you need ultra-high resolution or ultra-portability, those machines are stunning workhorses. But there's a tradeoff: Both models come with fixed flash storage. Many MacBook users need to pack along an external drive in order to house all their data. Recent offerings from Western Digital and G-Technology bring signature Mac style to svelte little external drives that are at home on your desk or in your pocket.
Now that USB 3.0 has finally arrived on the latest MacBook models, drive manufacturers are moving quickly to make sure their products work equally well with the Mac as they do with PCs, including WD's newest line of portable hard drives.
