The second generation version of the card adds the security of cloud backup.   ( )

Not much to report on aesthetically, by the folks at the unfortunately named startup TarDisk hit CES with an upgraded version of their extremely cool SD Card-sized MacBook storage extender.

The big update here is the addition of the company's cloud-backup service, addressing the question of what happens when the hardware fails. Otherwise, the device is pretty much the same.

Just slip into into a MacBook's SD slot, follow the onscreen software prompts, and boom, you've increased your laptop's storage by up to 256GB. Though, as with before, you'll need to say goodbye to  your SD slot -and $149 for the 128GB version and $399 for 256.

Oh, and the new backup service will run $50 a year after a 14 day free trial.
