I purchased the WD My Book Live Duo to replace a 10 year old Linux server that was primarily used as a SMB based media hub for centralizing the families music collection on our home Apple computer based WiFi network. The Duo has served that purpose perfectly.
The Duo was trivial to setup as a mirrored (reducing storage to 2TB) and network available drive which is mounted by each person's computer. Combined with a separate drive for incremental backups I am confident that our digital content is secure and safe from hard drive failure.
+1 for recommending this device.
I love it. Love it. Love my kindle fire.
In November/December 2012, the world finally changed. A tablet with incredible functionality, finally at a price that anyone can afford. Buying content is easy, installing your own content is easy as it's an open platform. It just works.
I'm giving this a 5 star review not because every page held my total interest but for the detailed scholarship that went into the telling of the life forces that have shaped our president. Starting with the great grandparents and their lives in Kenya and Kansas, the reader is given a most intricate telling of all the persons, minor and major who had any influence on the lives of Obama's forbearers. At times I did find it boring but in the total picture, this book gives the reader the panoramic view of the life forces that shaped him even before his birth.
Personally, I believe Obama will go down as one of our most breakthrough presidents in not just being the first Afro-American but in many other ways that we are too close in history to see
I found the parts about Africa and Indonesia difficult reading because of all the strange names and places (to me that is) while the more familiar places in the US were easier to understand.
This book is only up to the time when Obama begins Harvard Law School after leaving his work as a community organizer in Chicago and we see the trajectory of his life as he makes his emotional "trip" to find a center for himself. Inevitably Obama chooses a black identity and the reader just knows that Michelle will be the woman he will want to marry because she is the one he realizes will be his most helpful life partner.
Obama was a brilliant student but also very human...smoked incessantly because of pressure that he only showed that way...indulged in pot and liked to throw back some beers at parties. Also liked girls and went with both races but was involved in 3 most serious relationships with white women.
Although he saw very little of his mother. Ann still exercised a big influence on his life. His father, Barack ! was a miserable womanizing drunk who had a brilliant mind but it was wasted on his terrible character. His grandfather, Stanley. was more like a Willie Loman character while Tut (Madlyn) his grandmother probalby was one of the steadiest influences in his formative years when he returned to Hawaii from Indonesia.
Not an easy read but for those who really want to delve deeply into Obama up to his Harvard Law Scool days. The author is going to write another book dealing with the ongoing story but who knows when that will finally be written. Obama has much to do ahead of him.
