Actually, I do. :-)

But it's a great illustration of the way things are going. I moved all my music to a NAS a couple of years ago, in FLAC format, so that I could serve it to any device round the house.

But then Google Play Music came along, and up into the cloud it went (at 320 kbps mp3). Then All Access came to the UK, and finally weaned me off Napster after 8 years of subscribing. Now with all the music together in the cloud I'm finding myself going to the local NAS versions less and less. The quality's better on the NAS, but the cloud quality is acceptable, and far more convenient than the local copies.

I travel a lot, so yes, there are times when I'm offline, but I've got my phone with me as well, with cloud copies pinned offline there. I don't really need all my music with me all the time - I still have plenty of offline content available - and I can refresh what's offline whenever I do get a data connection.

And if I wanted to carry a 60 GB music collection with me, of course, I could just put it on an SD card.

Yes, indeed. I recently standardized on 32GB flash drives. I have them all the way back to 256KB and maybe smaller. Yes there are larger but I am trying for uniformity.

Also a small WD Passport drive with 1TB is neat. Pull it out and load up R&B 1950, 60. Or old country 1930 on.

I actually have 3 in all.

Two 1 Terabyte and one 2 Terabyte.

And then all those smaller ones from years past.

The USB3 capability sizzles!
