I use the Leef iBridge 16GB for one thing - to watch magic trick instructional videos on my iPhone.
Have you noticed how horrible the iTunes app has become? Apple has lost the plot on this confusing piece of bloatware and I avoid it as much as possible.

I drag the movie files onto it. Then I unplug it and stick the iPhone end of the Leef into my phone, open the Leef app, and there are my card trick movies. It's foolproof.
The Leef also makes it easy to copy photos from your phone to the Leef, so you can copy them to your computer without using iPhoto (another horrible app).

Because of this, there’s no way for the chip’s new security capabilities to protect against card skimmers in the wild.How do you protect yourself from legacy-technology-induced fraud? […]
As the old saying goes, “You should sit in meditation for 30 minutes every day. Unless you are too busy, in which case you should meditate for an hour.” Since most of us have an endless list of things to do and people to see, carving out quiet time can feel impossible, especially when most […]
