Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Wireless Flash Storage for iOS Devices – $69.99


Don’t Make Me Pull Over, You Three

A notorious gangsta rapper, a Nobel laureate novelist, and my Grandma. This was gonna be a long road trip.

How did I wind up driving Bushwick Bill, V. S. Naipaul, and my Grandma Evelyn from Indianapolis to Cleveland? Long story. But the trip itself seemed to go by just like that, thanks to the Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Wireless Flash Storage.

Each of my three diverse passengers were able to enjoy the media content of his or her choosing, saved on the Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Wireless Flash Storage and streamed wirelessly to their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. Since it all happens through the free Kingston app, I didn’t have to keep my passengers waiting while I labored through the cumbersome iTunes sync process before we left.

Good thing, too, because Bushwick Bill was already upset that the Kingston Android app won’t be out until around Christmastime. The guy may be a Christian now, but I’d still rather not get on his bad side. This kind of situation is exactly why I keep a second iPad on me at all times: you never know when you’ll be stuck in a car with a Geto Boy whose phone runs Android.

Yes, the drive was a breeze, with Grandma Evelyn immersed in her stories, Bill watching his guest appearance on Martin on repeat, and V.S. catching up with 19 Kids and Counting (he says it’s some kind of metaphor for post-colonial pathologies, or something). He even got Bill hooked on it, and they were both able to watch the same videos individually on their own devices. Thanks, Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB Wireless Flash Storage!

Now all I have to worry about is cleaning all the gin bottles, blunt roaches, and pork rind crumbs out of the passenger seat. Hey, what could I do? She’s my Grandma.
