Kindle – The Book Lives On
A revolution in the printed book industry came with the invention of the Kindle, an Amazon initiative to digitize the very books we read. If you’re unaware about this mammoth of an invention, don’t you worry, we’re here to tell you all about it. Kindle is somewhat of a tablet but totally different from it as well. What is similar between the two is their size and dimensions. A Kindle is primarily and solely used for reading books and storing them in one place. Most importantly, Kindle doesn’t strain your eyes the way you think it might, it’s equipped with a ‘Reading Mode’ which lets you read for hours at a stretch without causing any harm to your eyes.
According to a survey, the average human reads around 732 books in their entire lifetime which comes down to around 12 books a year and that’s just what the average human reads, some read less and many read more, way more. Now imagine the space these books will take once you keep buying them and storing them in your house. Also in case you’re traveling and decide to take a book along, some books are either too broad to be carried or they don’t fit in with your luggage resulting in damaged books and nobody wants damaged books.
A Kindle solves all these problems in a second and even makes you look cool, who thought reading books could make you look cool. You can buy e-books online and read them directly from your Kindle, this way you can read any book you want while not worrying about where to store them, since Kindle has the space to store thousands of books in one place at a time, making it easier to surf from one book to another as well. Many might argue that there’s no substitute to having a book in your hand and reading it, keeping bookmarks in-between pages and folding edges to save insightful learnings for future reading, which in all its entirety, is true.
But we adapt to changing times, and if there’s a device that saves your space, your time, your money (since ebooks are cheaper than paperbacks and hardcovers), is portable with an aesthetically appealing design, has a long battery life, and lets you read for hours at long without straining your eyes, you’d have to be out of your mind not to invest in it. It’s probably the best gadget investment for avid readers and learners around the world!
Hard Drive – A Backup Storage Device
It’s 2021 already and data is the new gold. But where do we store such big heaps of data? That’s where an external Hard Drive comes into play. Usually overlooked by some people, Hard Drives are actually the reason behind where data in form of written content, video content, documents amongst other things are stored for future use or even safekeeping. A lot of times our laptop or desktop’s storage space runs out even though initially, we had a lot of space, but over time this free empty space runs out and we’re bound to purchase Hard Drives for storing our valuable data.
A Hard Drive is a hardware component that stores all your digital content and keeps it safe and secure. A Hard Drive can be both internal and external and everything on it is measured in terms of its size or space it occupies in the Hard Drive. Since it is used to store files of massive sizes, Hard Drives have a massive storage capacity, ranging anywhere from 100 GB to 10 TB and some may have even larger storage ability depending upon the type of work it is used for. Another reason to purchase a Hard Drive other than just storing and safekeeping important files and documents is that a Hard Drive can also be used as a back-up storage device.
Many times, our laptops/desktops crash due to some internal errors and need formatting in order to work properly again. This leads to a major loss of one’s data and digital belongings, be it personal photos and videos, important documents, essential work files which can prove catastrophic. Hence a Hard Drive is essential in maintaining a back-up option for all your digital possessions. Some trusted names in the Hard Drive business are Seagate, Toshiba, Western Digital amongst other names, and vary in price depending upon the size of the Hard Drive.
Hard Drives with higher storage capacity are more expensive than those with less storage capacity, the cost of the Hard Drive also depends upon the company manufacturing it. Go search the web and let us know which Hard Drive you purchased!
