    Ok so I got all organized with my laptop and removed about 300 GB of movies and music off of my Hard Drive. I moved it over to my own Cloud which is a Transporter Made by Connected Data.

    I got the Transporter with a 2 TB HDD which is connected to my router. it is then connected to my router another Apple product

    So now with my laptop, I can call up a video via iTunes and play it on to my HDTV through my sound system. I use an Apple TV as the interface.

    Pretty cool because its all wireless, easy interface, not stored on my laptop anymore, fast streaming and is broadcast in real 1080P which my local cable does not offer yet

    First up was "The making of Wish you were Here" with Pink Floyd :smokin:

    So this Transporter is connected to my router via ethernet within my house. It does allow me to pull down movies via WiFi or LTE only speeds when I am away. They have Apps for IOS and Android now. I was able to view a movie on my iPad when I was away on a business trip even though the movie was not resident on the iPad. I guess it is like having my own Netflix based at my home.

    The thing I really like is with the new OS 10 Mavericks you can use your HD TV as a monitor. From the Laptop I can connect to the big screen which is really helpful when I have spreadsheets that are very wide.

    10 TB movies? Holy crap that is one huge Mofo of a movie; what is it 3D Porn? :bwah: All the movies I have are maybe 4 GB but none more than that size.

    well 3 people with a huge dvd film collection, looking for a easy way to have access to the movies, so we started to rip all the movies we had , lots off work
    but about 3500 hours off movies,
    in my old place i could stream it easy.
    but my new house there is only limited connection possibility, no cable , only telephone line a long way out off the last junction.

    we use XMBC as viewer.

    Ok now I get it.

    My own cloud was set up for my business initially. I could put price lists, catalogues, technical support data etc up there and pull it down easily when in front of a customer with a laptop, iPad or even my iPhone.

    When I looked at it, I was only using about a 1/4 of the 2 TB drive for Biz so then I moved all my movies, pictures etc off to the cloud I created. Big bonus is I am not paying an annual fee for storage. Dropbox and iCloud get pretty expensive when you are looking at an excess of 100 GB of storage.

    I'm confused.

    Why wouldn't you just buy a 2TB hard drive and plug it into your router?

    Or just get a Apple Time Capsule($299), which is a 802.11ac router with 2TB built-in?
