Just a few thoughts.
WD should build on their success first.
- My Cloud Home could be plug in and immediately use as an external drive. So never a total waste.
Ease of setup.
Using the USB cable download small setup programme which can setup the WIFI so even users with mobile broadband and no ethernet connection can use the product.
When using the programme allow users to set up private and public areas on the drive. The user can decide how much space can be used to download from the internet etc.
Ease of use.
- Allow the user to have the whole drive appear as an external drive over the network after setup.
This also means that any computer on the users local network will have access to the files as well.
The user can then copy and move files at will between computer and private/public areas.
The user can then also preload the drive from their computer with all the files they wish to share or store.
Keep the same interface to the internet to upload or download files to the ‘Private Area’.
Just one addition a simple password to access the private area from the web which can be shared with family and friends so users can give this to who they wish and share content.
With a product like this you have a NAS drive for the local network and an internet personal cloud storage device.
Now just hope someone reads this and can make these improvements.
If you would like to agree just reply to this saying I want it as well!
