    I am looking for a very small, compact wireless flash drive that pares with the ipad via bluetooh with a storage of about 8 or 16 gb at a decent price.

    I looked at the flash drive in the posts below your - cool concept.

    Do you absolutely have to have physical storage?

    If not - if you could work 'Dropbox' into your workflow, that would serve the same purpose and never require the physical transferring of data.

    i.e. I scan a document using my iPad/iPhone or open an attachment from email (pdf or what have you), etc. - I then save it to the Dropbox app on that device - AND it's instantly made available on all of my other devices that are also linked to my Dropbox account (iPhone, iPad, laptop, desktop, etc). Pretty handy - can't imagine not being able to do that.

    Forget to mention - you can get quite a bit of Dropbox cloud stroage for free.

    I 2nd the DropBox solution but you got to be on WiFi to connect or use a cellular model. If there was no DropBox I would have a wirelss jumpdrive for sure.

    Dropbox works if you have an internet connection without data cap. But sometimes you simply have no connection, or are on a connection with data cap, as in most cellular data.

    There are a few options out there right now from Sandisk and similar companies. They all seem to have between 4-8 hours of battery life. I don't know how this MBLOK expects to have 300 hours of battery life streaming media wirelessly -- it sounds like wishful thinking from yet another "amazing" kickstarter product.

    You can't do stuff like this over Bluetooth anyway -- at best it's Bluetooth used to pair the devices and establish an ad-hoc 802.11 wi-fi link to do the transfer.

    Yeah, 300h is pretty crazy.

    Not worth it. Between al the hassle and price, i suggest you seriously consider selling your iPad and buying a model with more storage.

    My ipad has 32gb and it's not the problem. I just want something to store movies and music to use it on my ipad and iphone.

    Wireless flash drive should be nice for to go if there is no wifi/hotspot available. :apple:
