Sharing in the 21st century pretty much means giving something to someone else without relinquishing it or making any sort of sacrifice yourself. I love the 21st century. And, by proxy, this poster child of the 21st century: SanDisk's Connect Wireless Flash Drive.

The portable flash drive facilitates wireless group storage and access of music, videos, photos, and documents across multiple devices. Remember that time the family got split and plunked 5 rows apart on the airplane and you had to choose which son got to watch Die Hard, and which was stuck with Dirty Dancing? With SanDisk's Connect, such decisions--decisions that will haunt you for the duration of your career as a parent--exist no more. Both sons can now revel in the ill-advised bravery of bloody-wifebeater-wearing Bruce Willis, provided they are within 150 feet of one another and have a WiFi-enabled device.

The drive provides up to 4 hours of continuous streaming on a single charge, and can connect up to 8 devices--smartphones, tablets, laptops, ereaders--simultaneously, as well as stream video to 3 devices at once. It requires no Internet connection, cables, or router, just a free app compatible with iOS 5.0 and up, Android 2.3 or later, and Kindles.

In addition to file sharing, SanDisk Connects also ease the pain of file transfer, allowing users to move data between all linked devices at once. It comes with storage capacity options of 16 or 32 GB.

Now. Back to this contemporary method of sharing. I would like to propose that someone out there please figure out a way for me to "share" my Beefy Crunch burritos and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Let me know what you come up with.

Muchas danke to The Awesomer.
