Viewing your iPhone files

If your a iPhone user on either Mac or Windows and want to transfer files back and forth quickly you have to check out iPhone Explorer. This free application allows you to open a file view of a either a iPhone or iPod device and view/open the stored contents.

If you want to save files for transport for a meeting or back some pics you took a trip….not a problem just connect your device and your in business.

I have a ipod classic with 160GB that I travel with primarily for music, now I can easily back-up my pics before I head back home or just to my next stop on the trip. With the failure rates of HD’s these days its just a matter of time before the disk in my MBP will die suddenly. This utility ensures that I have a copy of critical files and documents for a meeting. I have learned that you can never take for granted a possible technology failure when on the road. Tools like this can help to save your bacon and your reputation.

Now there is the other side of this tool that you should be aware of and that is the ability for someone who has lifted to your device to see your data. That includes those raunchy party pics for last Friday, or that video from  a hockey game where you had too many hot dogs and had to blow chow on the subway, yes the world might be witnessing your greatest moments. My advice…. do not keep video or pictorial evidence of any racy act. Stories you can denied, pictures can be doctored but are harder to claim innocence. Now eat your brussels sprouts and get back to work. I am done lecturing for the day.
