The world's most poorly organized technology tradeshow, Computex Taipei, finished on the weekend, and one of the many wonderful products lost amongst the clutter caused by the dysfunctional organization was the Kingston Wi-Drive, a rugged Flash-based portable storage solution with built-in wifi that allows three Apple device users to stream different file types simultaneously without any performance disruption.

The additional 16GB (US$130) or 32GB (US$175) storage and convenient file sharing make it a perfect companion device for the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

There's no doubt the Wi drive can add significantly to the usefulness of your iPad or iPhone, particularly if you're limited for space compared to the media you wish to use or share. This video explains the tiny (121.5 x 61.8 x 9.8 mm) Wi Drive which will be available later this month.

If Apple would put a miro-SD card reader in their devices, then this wouldn't be needed and you won't have to lug around another device.

They should have made it a piggy-back, so you only have one combined unit to carry around.

MicroSD card is something that Apple can't control (in any way), so for this reason the company probably will never include it in i-gadgets.

I am surprised they focus on using a app, when a simple web server could be just as useful. This especially of they applied webdav or similar.

Apple could install one if they wanted, but that would mean the user can add files without using their I-Tunes and dictatorship control of the users. Other manufacturers include them, so can Apple.
