I take at least a hundred photos every week.
Some of them are so bad that I delete them right away.
Some are mediocre, but they capture a great moment.
Some are good, but not outstanding.
And then there are a few that are magnificent.
I back-up my photos on Seagate hard drives. I take this precaution because I would cry for days if I ever lost my pictures. Make that: weeks. You can take away my clothes, my furniture, my TV, my anyTHING...but not my pictures. They are memories, moments, magic - the past, present, and future captured for a moment behind a lens.
I currently use the 2TB FreAgent Desk for Mac ($289.99), a sleek, stylish, and super-capacity product that protects my most precious memories in digital form. The Desk also backs up music, movies, and important documents. Plus, it transfers data at the speed of light (okay, not really the speed of light...but it is SUPER fast with USB 2.0 and FW 800).
Then, when we want to see our photos or home videos on the big screen, we use our FreeAgent Theater+ ($269.99). The Theater+ is a home entertainment system that moves your movies, pictures, and music from your computer to your TV. Experience High Definition Playback and Dolby Digital Surround Sound as you watch your 3-year-old sing the ABCs or hear your baby's gurgling laughter. Note to self: TAKE MORE VIDEOS! I'm so good about taking photos, but so forgetful when it comes to the video camera.
If you aren't currently backing up your photos, make haste. Perhaps you could ask for a back-up drive for Christmas? It might not be the most glamorous gift, but it is one that could potentially save you a whole lot of heartache.
