    • Hiking and camping with solar panels is becoming very common. Solar panels charge your stuff while you’re walking
  • 20:30 – Jon talks about backups, backups, and backups!
    • SpiderOak did not fare well against Jon’s criteria
      • It has no 2FA (two-factor authentication). In 2018. Srsly.
      • Each device in the account can see and download all the files from every other device in the account. Booooooo for data segregation!
    • iDrive is the winner. It backs up all Jon’s devices (Windows, Mac, iPhone, Linux)
      • iDrive has proper encryption and device separation
      • The 2FA is provided by a separate encryption/decryption password from the login password
      • You also get a sync folder to sync data across all your devices without it counting against your backup quota
      • Annnd the price is right! Click here to check out iDrive (affiliate link)
