Product Review: The Western Digital MyPassport SSD


Are you searching for a portable storage to fit your on-the-go lifestyle? Look no further because I’ve nailed it. Western Digital’s MyPassport SSD is all you need and so much more. Western Digital ticked all the right boxes with this one, the external drives designed to look both stylish and sleek. Upon seeing the device, the distinctive size becomes apparent. At dimensions of 3.94” x 2.17” x 0.35” and a weight of 1.7 ounces, the MyPassport looks and weighs more like an ATM card than an actual passport. Space is no longer a problem! It is small enough tofit right into your pockets for easier accessibility. Durability is also not an issue as this drive has a maximum drop resistance of 6.5ft and enough shock and vibration resistance to sustain minor impact without damage to any of its internal mechanisms.

Unboxing and  Compatibility

Unboxing the MyPassport SSD reveals a portable SSD Drive, USB Type-C to Type-C cable (supports USB 3.1 Gen-2), USB Type-C to Type-A adapter, WD Discovery™ software** for WD Backup™, WD Security™ and WD Drive Utilities™ as well as a quick install guide.

In terms of compatibility, the MyPassport is functional on both Macintosh and Windows operating systems (Windows® 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7, macOS High Sierra, Sierra or El Capitan). A simple reformat is all that is required to alternate from Windows’ NTFS file system to Macintosh’s APFS system and vice-versa.

For those who would like to use the MyPassport simply as a backup tool, it also comes with Backup software and Apple Time Machine compatibility. The drive also comes with both USB-3 and USB-C adapters to ensure you can plug in on any laptop or PC nearly hassle-free (both accessories are quite short by industry standards).

Design and Performance

The WD MyPassport SSD is stylishly designed in a range of colors (blue, gold, grey or red), enclosed in a compact sleek metal design. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing it also gets the job done. A prominent selling point of the MyPassport SSD is its speeds. With read speeds of 1050MB/s and write speeds of 1000MB/s, long wait times for media transfers are a thing of the past. Large, gigabyte-size file transfers is completed in a matter of seconds. Storage options ranging from 500GB to 4TB means capacity will never be an issue. However, WD is yet to find the perfect balance between speed and heat. While the drive is fast, it also heats up quickly so don’t be too alarmed, the heat is pretty normal.

Keeping with the trend of newer external drives, the MyPassport SSD is supported by its own WD Discovery software in the form of the WD Security App and Drive Utilities. Password protection courtesy of 256-bit AES hardware encryption helps keep your content secure. Password protection is a feature provided courtesy of the Security app to ensure restricted access to the contents of your drive. The Drive Utilities app, on the other hand, allows for drive registration, setting timers, diagnostic runs and drive erasure.

The My Passport is my first recommendation for anyone who wants well-priced SSD storage and great portability.In Nigeria, starting off at N40,000 for the 256GB option on Jumia, the WD MyPassport SSD is definitely a worthwhile purchase for everyone: from the IT professional to the tech bro or the average computer user.

The Western Digital MyPassport SSD lives up to its name as an electronic passport of access to immense storage - and quickly too. For more digital storage solutions from Western Digital visit:

How Are Existing Industries Being Disrupted by New Tech?

 No matter how you slice it, technology is a force that is set to disrupt the future of work and industries as a whole for years to come. The advancements being made by machine learning and Artificial Intelligence threaten to render certain jobs obsolete and even traditionally strong industries are beginning to buckle under this pressure.

There is nothing wrong with incumbent industries merging with technology, but the effects of this merger could have unforeseen byproducts. To attempt to overcome this unknown, it is productive to view the changes that technology has already had on various industries in an effort to predict future disruption.

new tech

New Job Openings

This change is perhaps the most interesting to watch. Jobs heavily based on technology are opening up quickly in fields that have absolutely nothing to do with technology as a whole. For example, HR companies are not a tech-based group, yet the need for more and more skilled web developers who can build websites is rising. 

Now, how is technology affecting this change? It’s all about the Internet and computers. Sourcing for candidates is primarily done through LinkedIn and other online services. Therefore, recruiters are having to rely on technology more and more to do their job. Web developers are required to build companies’ websites but also manage their software in some cases.

This turns into an endless loop as more tech jobs emerge due to prior tech jobs. As web developers and software engineers create different software for businesses, those businesses need to hire cybersecurity experts to protect the data. In the end, even rigid industries will have to move their businesses online and hire tech employees who have experience with online services.

Machine Learning

This is the driving force behind automation. Machine learning is a growing aspect of Artificial Intelligence where technology can actually teach itself and learn from previous tasks. This isn’t just automation—it’s self-perfecting automation. One common field that machine learning is likely to uproot is finance. 

Specifically speaking, financial analysts may be disrupted as machine learning is all about taking big amounts of data and analyzing it to make business decisions. Certain processes within the accounting field will also likely be disrupted by machine learning and humans just cannot compete with the speed and accuracy of machines. Technology isn’t all bad, however, and there will certainly be new jobs created at financial or accounting companies to replace those that are lost. With that said, these new jobs are likely to be based on software and focused on maintaining the Artificial Intelligence systems that now do the work.

Career paths such as becoming a Software Engineer are going to take off instead of traditional opportunities. The job market as a whole is going to be disrupted by machine learning and automation. People wouldn’t have believed in self-driving cars 15 years ago, but machine learning has helped this process along. Automation will forever change the way industries function.

Changing Traditional Skills

The required skills that students will be asked for upon graduation and the skills that employees will be expected to have are about to be completely disrupted by technology. Fast Company found that even five years ago there were seven million jobs available for people with coding skills. Keep in mind, this was before many even knew what exactly coding is. 

In just half a decade, millions of jobs have been popping up for a skill that was relatively unknown. They are already beginning to make coding a part of the common curriculum for younger kids in school. Who knows what new skills are going to be required as technology continues to develop. 

This will likely push older employees out of the workforce as they will be part of a work generation that uses obsolete skills. With that said, it is never too old to learn, and learning new skills on the fly will become another theme among employees.


Technology is changing every industry imaginable. Traditional industries are beginning to feel the effects of disruption and this change will spread to every level of each industry. It is important to remember that the world will not be taken over by technology. There is always going to be a need for people and our unique skills, but the day-to-day tasks we focus on are inevitably going to change. Preparing for that change by predicting the future of technological disruption is the best any of us can do.

What is Smart Plug and How Does it Work?


Do you know how smart socket works? This device promises to make your home even more connected, in addition to ensuring more savings on the electricity bill.

We live in an increasingly connected world, with technologies whose purpose is to integrate different devices in our lives to provide complete control from a smartphone or tablet. So are smart sockets (or smartplugs) that, in addition to allowing you to control the operation of some appliances remotely, can also help you save even more on your electricity bill.

Compatible with Android and iOS, these devices can even be activated via voice command with integration with some digital assistant, such as Google Assistant or Alexa, from Amazon. But not everyone has this functionality.

So, let's understand a little more about how smart plugging works in this article. 

How does the smart socket work?

Smart Plug

The smart plug acts as an adapter that plugs into any standard outlet and has an internet connection. Thus, you can control it remotely from any device with a Wi-Fi connection through applications suitable for this purpose.

To use the smart plug features, you need to download a specific app for your smartphone brand. With this, it is possible to control this socket remotely, such as turning on or off any household appliance connected to it.

In addition, smart sockets have other features, such as scheduling to turn the power flow on or off. This is a good feature to control children's use, activate other appliances at specific times (such as coffee maker, iron, TV, etc.).

Another great advantage of these devices is the promise of greater safety, since some models have devices that measure the temperature of the sockets. Thus, in the event of excessive temperatures, it switches off automatically to prevent accidents.

Some also have an absent mode, which can be activated when your home, apartment or office is empty for long periods. The smart socket is still able to turn the lights on and off at predetermined times so it doesn't look like anyone is home.

But one of its main advantages is the savings in the electricity bill.

Is the electricity bill even cheaper?

how smart socket works

It is not just to turn on / off and schedule appliance operating times that the smart socket serves. These devices still have a very interesting feature for those who are always willing to spend less on home bills, as the smart socket helps to map your electrical consumption and you can have access to reports of energy expenses. Thus, it is possible to know which appliances spend more and which spend less to get a sense of good consumption practices.

And since smart sockets can be controlled by apps, you can have that control from wherever you are. Has your television been plugged in all day and generated an unnecessary expense on your electricity bill? Just disable the smartplug from your phone.

But is it just an advantage?

Not everything in life is just an advantage, and with smart sockets it couldn't be different. The main disadvantage is that devices that have electronic switches do not work on smarts, such as notebooks or washing machines. This is because these devices have only one button to turn on / off, different from mechanical switches, which have two positions (on and off).

Now that you know how smart plugging works, be sure to take advantage of Wizytechs offerings. You pay less here and can still count on a discount coupon on your purchases.

Get PayPal Account That Sends and Receives Payments Without VPN

It is no more news that PayPal restricted some countries from receiving payments (funds) from clients abroad. Users in these banned regions can only make payments but can't receive. That's too bad especially if you are an internet marketer, blogger, Freelancer, Affiliate specialist, to mention but a few. This is because PayPal is the main form of receiving payments for the services you render online especially from foreign clients.

Some of the countries that cannot receive payments on PayPal includes; Nigeria, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Cote D'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Ghana, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Liberia, Libya, Monaco, Moldova, Montenegro, Myanmar, Pakistan, Paraguay, Saint Lucia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Timor-Leste, Uzbekistan and Zimbabwe. However, PayPal is not available at all to some of nations listed above.

Well, I have a trick that I will reveal to those interested in having a PayPal account that sends and receives money in restricted countries like Nigeria.

PayPal is so important that you can't do without it. I could remember some years back when I lost on some couple of business deals from foreign clients simply because their only method of payment was via PayPal and then, I don't have the one that receives payments. Until I was able to decode a trick that works better than the VPN method.

Talking about VPN, many Nigerians used VPN to open accounts and it works but it doesn't last. The VPN method is very risky and volatile. A little mistake could get your account blocked and you loose the money inside.

But my method is clean and lasts longer once it's opened. You just need to follow the simple rule of not logging with many devices.

✔ Payment is made easily. No need to visit your bank, western union, etc for international payments
✔️ You receive the payment for your goods and services as fast as possible
✔️ The platform is highly secured
✔️ It is the most acceptable payment service in the world
✔️ Sign up is free of charge
✔️ It has an app with simple user interface
✔️ You can pay for virtually anything online with via PayPal
✔️ etc.


It's true that Payoneer is a great alternative to PayPal as it offers almost all the features of PayPal but it's still unclear while some top foreign companies don't make use of it. They seems to prefer PayPal to Payoneer.

Though I have both accounts. In fact, this my trick requires you get both Payoneer and PayPal account for easy withdrawal of your money either to your local bank account or via ATM.


I am sorry to say this but I had to. Initially, I wanted to write an Ebook for this service because it's not free but on a second thought, I decided to put it down as a post for those of you who are willing to get it. In order words, the information is not FREE.

To get this PayPal account, you need to contact me via whatsapp with this number +234-8-0-6-2-2-7-6-4-9-0 (remove the hyphens) or contact me via email (wizytechs @

Please send "INFO ON PAYPAL ACCOUNT" then I will reply you with the procedures.

Only for interested people please. Don't come and chat me up if you aren't interested. Thanks guys for understanding.
