Seagate #GoFlexMemories is sponsoring me!

Seagate Sponsored Me to go to Blog World ExpoI’m happy to announce that Seagate through Collective Bias is sponsoring me to go to BlogWorld & New Media Expo. I can hardly contain how excited I am to be working with Seagate on this blog but for them to choose me to send to BlogWorld & New Media Expo is amazing. I will finally get a chance to meet in person some of the people that I have been working with online and over the phone. I’ve been enjoying testing out and using all the great Seagate products that they sent me. Watching our vacation photos on GoFlex TV, automatically backing up several computers through GoFlex Home and then sharing files with GoFlex Net.

Disclosure: I received a number of Seagate devices including the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1 TB USB 2.0 Ultra-Portable External Hard Drive, GoFlex Home, GoFlex TV and GoFlex Net. I’ll be talking about these devices in the coming months. The opinions about the devices are 100% mine.

I received a bunch of great Seagate GoFlex products to try out in our home and I am really very thrilled to get this chance to work with a company that I like very much.

I just plug it into the computers and they automatically get backed up. That is, once I set up the backup software from Memeo. You get a free lite version and if you want enhanced features like more control over what you back up then you have to pay for the pro version.

One of the devices in the GoFlex ecosystem is the GoFlex Net. This device connects to your network and allows you to share directories on the drives attached to the GoFlex Net. You can share any directory on your connected drives with anyone that you want via Pogoplug. Pogoplug is pretty amazing. I was able to add all of our photos from our recent Disney trip to a GoFlex Ultra-Portable Drive connect that directly into the GoFlex Net and then share that Disney 2010 folder with anyone I wanted to share it with. This is a great way to privately share photos with family and friends via the Internet but never having to upload them to the Internet.
