re: iPad Air: First Impressions
Just bought an iPad Air (woo-hoo, trading in an iPhone 5) and think your comments are right on the mark. Not withstanding your and Mr. King's concern, the little gizmo that allows you to insert an SD card and connect to the IPad is no big deal to carry around in your bag with the cables and charging plug. Or you can get one of those cool new drives that accept an SD card (or USB drive), create a little wifi bubble and stream whatever's on the SD or USB drive to the iPad or whatever else. Enjoy your iPad Air.

Any Apple fanboys in here? The author is complaining about the iPad lack of support for SD cards, not workarounds. Why on earth someone will need to spend more money for an adapter? Not to mention the hassle to carry that thing around. I bet the lightning reader will look really cute on the iPad hanging like a mouse tail.

Backup has gotten much easier since Apple introduced wireless syncing. You still have to device how much you trust iCloud though. I still sync locally to iTunes.

Mine backs up automatically and wirelessly, for free using the included iCloud. It also makes migrating to a new device an absolute dream when the time comes.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
