If you haven't read about it, You can do so Here: http://www.seraphsam.com/2012/08/my-book-live-by-western-digital.html

As of now,

The My Book Live comes in 2TB & 3TB 
and The My Book Live Duo comes in 4TB & 6TB

The Retail Prices are: My Book Live from RM499 and My Book Live Duo from RM999. yes its pricey, but its worth it! finding the features it gives and security over all.

We were invited to Plaza Lowyat to see the live demonstration on how it operates, with the steady hands and knowledge of the Western Digital Employee, We were able to know its perks, and its superiority over the rest.

Getting to know the My Book Live series, its basically connected to the internet where you can access it from anywhere around the globe. There is an online portal which is very easy to use to extract any of your documents and also the iPad/Android apps which we're able to use for tablets and phones.

The iPad apps




One of the things that I'm really impressed about it, was the speed that you are able to retrieve your documents/music/videos.

He showed us a live streaming of the music/videos played on the iPad when the My Book Live set was actually at WD Headquarters. It was really amazing to know that the documents and content get streamed so fast without laggyness.

live streaming of content



As for security wise, we found out that we could set multiple passwords to ensure the safety of our content in our hard disks. Since everyone will be asking, how safe would it be since its on the internet? I can assure you that it is VERY SAFE.



As we headed on to the technical side, We got to open up the My Book Live Duo set. where we could see the double hard disks in it. A great part about it is that, in the unlikely event where the My Book Live Duo were to crash, we can extract both the hard disks out to retrieve all the content stored in them.

Other than that, for the My Book Live Duo, you can also expand your storage from plugging in your other drives to it. So basically you can have more than the 6TB allocated inside the Hard Drive

The external ports.



All in All, I would say it is a VERY GOOD BUY if you're interested in getting some additional storage for yourself. The Accessibility, the security, and of course coming from the World's leader in storage solutions, You're in for a treat if you do get one!

What should you do this Raya?

As the festivals return again, Ramadhan & Hari Raya Aidilfitri takes the spotlight where millions gather to buka puasa (break fast), bermaaf-maafan (forgive each other) and visit each other on this joyous occasion!

So pretty much as for me, I enjoy the Ramadhan Bazaar where I could get yummylicious food and even meet friends which I've lost contact for a long time, cause pretty much, everyone goes there for the food! and of course, I love heading to Open houses where there's MORE FOOD. yeah you can see what drives me.

But well of course, its the fellowship between each other that makes everything so special each Hari Raya Aidilfitri.


As of this year, how can you make your Hari Raya worthwhile and more happening? Here are some simple activities that you can do!

The Cube has premiered some of its new features for its subscribers and you do not want to miss out these opportunities they're providing. Check out The Cube at www.thecube.my
