My Husband’s New Toy: My Cloud EX2

I love it when I receive thoughtful gifts from both friends and sponsors, you can tell when something was handpicked just for you. This gift was extra special because it was addressed personally for my husband, Patrick! The folks at WD (represented by their PR firm) mentioned it to me a few weeks ago “Patrick does a lot of file sharing for work right? We have something that’s perfect for Thirty Six-O!”. Of course when she mentioned all the technical details, I’ll admit I got a bit lost in the jargon. Hahaha! But I just appreciated the thoughtfulness so much, I was more than delighted to receive it! Syempre pay-uwi ko I told Patrick about it and he had a big smile on his face. He was obviously thrilled to get the MY CLOUD EX2. It’s now stationed comfortably by his workspace and it has proven truly efficient in their office. Thank you again so much WD for this gift!!! It has saved Patrick and his employees a whole chunk of stress.
I honestly tried to explain the techie details in my own words, but with a few attempts I was just laughing at how funny it all sounded. I guess it would do the product more justice if I let the peeps at WD do the talking. So for those who are interested, here’s how the MY CLOUD EX2 can work for you!
