Fortunately we're also in an era of ubiquitous wifi. Accessing data on the cloud - whether through enterprise-level services like Amazon S3 or via simple sync solutions like Dropbox - is taken for granted. There's nothing stopping travelers from uploading their data from the road.
Hundred-plus-gigabyte travel drives have only recently become convenient. Before then large external drives were just too bulky. Now - just a few years after it even became possible - the technology could become obsolete. What's the point of carrying around a 250GB drive when functionally limitless data is accessible online? Or is there something about having a physical drive, either for backup or for storage, that will keep Iomega's eGos popular?
