USB Drive Is Double Take of DDR RAM Memory

USB sticks come in many different sizes, shapes and colors, but today is the first time we’ve seen a custom USB drive with the look and feel of RAM memory.  The Segon Turbo drive is another release from Brando on unique USB shapes. Brando claims it’s ingenious and exquisite, which I think is a bit too much on credit, but definitely a different look.  Too bad you can’t use the PCI looking slot to boost your real RAM needs.

The Segon Turbo drive includes a push-pull design for the USB connector making it a good portable product with protection to the connector. Some notable software functionality comes preloaded on the IC controller chip, such as:
  1. Security Manager
  2. Boot Manager
  3. Flash Mail Manager
  4. PC Lock Manager
  5. Bookmark Manager
  6. Security Folder
Available in a 2 and 4GB sizes, starting at just $12. Continue Reading

Never Leave Your UFD Behind With Flash Drive Reminder Utility

It’ is very possible many of you have left a USB stick in a work computer or friends computer simply because you forgot to pull it out upon leaving.  To help in those moments of lapsed memory, there is a utility that take care of your temporary Alzheimers.  The Flash Drive Reminder utility is a Windows based application and simply reminds you the USB stick is still plugged in when you log off or shut down.

The tiny app takes up very little space, autoruns from your USB stick and displays a pop up window upon connection.  This is where the application confirms the device is connected and you have the option to turn off the reminder or hide it until logging off or shutting down.  At which time, the software will throw up another pop-up windows telling you to grab your USB stick. There is a “quiet” version which eliminates the original pop-up window [nice] but will definitely display when you go to power down. The Flash Drive Reminder utility is free for the taking.  Continue Reading

USB Portable Application – Burn CDs & DVDs

Infra Recorder has a open source CD and DVD burning software package which may be configured to run as a USB portable application.  You can download the application for free, then make some edit changes in the properties box and run from a USB stick. I’m sure the first question you have is, why burn a CD or DVD if you already have a USB stick.  Well, maybe you are just slow to transition to 100% USB, or maybe you need to burn some video files at the parents house and don’t want to hassle with figuring out if they’ve got software to support the job.

Virtual Laptop Protects Children Online With USB Bracelet

wihoodWiHood is a relatively new service which is the world’s first “virtual laptop” that protects children online [ anywhere & at all times] with the WiHood’s USB bracelet. The concept is ideal and it appears the user interface, setup and configuration is just as simple.  This is what WiHood is:  A USB bracelet which auto-launches a virtual desktop when connected to any computer.  The virtual desktop runs off the WiHood servers which monitor and update website, programs, virus etc 24/7 for a completely kid friendly computer system.

From personal experience, my kids have trashed my computer – by mistake of course – but it still took time and skill to restore my PC.  The WiHood USB bracelet eliminates this risk because a virtual desktop is all your child can use.  The other issue I have with my kids using “the parent’s PC” is constant maintenance to monitor website, filters and content.  With WiHood, that daunting task is automatically taken care of.
“WiHood protects children, saves parents from purchasing a new PC, and kids love that they have their own “virtual laptop” which stores their pictures, music, homework, etc. and can be worn on their wrist!”
The USB bracelet uses the internal storage to save files, folders, pictures, music etc…but those files are only accessed through the virtual desktop which runs off the WiHood servers.  This means your kids will enjoy all the performance of a PC with the security of a remote server running the underlining PC desktop. The WiHood is free to try and costs $49 for 6 months service or $100 per year.  Stack that cost up against purchase of a dedicated PC for the kids and the WiHood is the clear choice. Still interested.  Maybe some more information?  Check out the WiHood FAQ page.  Or their WiHood Virtual Laptop home page. WiHood was founded in August 2007 and has been honored to be awarded funding from Innovation Norway, a division of the Norwegian government providing capital to the most innovative companies in Norway.
