Is it possible for two laptops to transfer information to each if they are close to each other but not connected?by anon on June 21, 2013
Q: My friend and I had an argument about this. He said if you leave a laptop next to another laptop (or a hard drive next to another hard drive) that they could potentially transfer some data from one to the other even if they are not connected to each other or even turned on. I said that is impossible, but I couldn’t explain it because I really don’t know how data transfer works. I can’t prove it. Can someone explain how and why this is impossible so he can shut up about it?
