Seagate Seven portable hard drive (500GB)

The metal styling of the Seagate Seven gives this portable, 2.5in hard drive an interesting look and feel compared to most other drives. It’s not just a regular rectangle. Instead it has a somewhat sculpted design that is made to look like a bare internal hard drive, but without the exposed circuit board.

Using Netgear Arlo Smart Home Security cameras

Traditional IP-based wireless security cameras for the home often require you to plug in a power cable, which can lead to limitations in terms of where you can install them.
