Hey Lifehacker, I’m considering using a iPad mini as a dedicated media ‘hub’, using Airplay to send Plex, YouTube and other content to a gen 3 Apple TV. Currently I’m using an Airport Extreme for Wi-Fi, along with a separate NetComm modem for internet connectivity. Is there any advantage to creating a second dedicated Wi-Fi network just for my media needs, or can I stay with the one network?
With the amount of data we store increasing at an exponential rate, many of us turn to archiving technologies as a way of protecting the most important information. I have a pile of CDs and DVDs with photos on them but none of my computers have an optical drive. NASA found itself in the same situation.
