Chat Stick – USB Flash Drive To Recover All Her Dirty IMs
Several weeks ago I reported on the flash drive which detects p0rn and today I’m letting you know about the Chat Stick. A flash drive which recovers all those dirty Instant Messages.
The USB Chat Stick is loaded with software which scans the host computer for all instant message conversations, deleted or not, and uses recovery software to localize all those discussions into one, nice, handy place; the flash drive.
So here’s the obvious spin about the USB Chat Stick. You can search a computers history for children IM conversations to make sure they aren’t sexting or worse, talking to on-line predators. Or, for the paranoid spouse, a great tool to finally put your curiosity to rest – are they cheating on me?
But from a business perspective, I think this has a lot of value. For example, we spend many hours talking to suppliers overseas about flash drives, MP3 players etc and there are many conversation which get deleted away. Import business transaction information that, one day, you may need to recover. The USB Chat Stick can help.
Here are the company’s talking points:
Why You Need a Chat Stick?
Sexual predators don’t only lurk in chat rooms. Once they gain your child’s trust, they often start to chat with them through regular chat clients. Kids also often talk about things they’ve done or are planning to do with their friends online not thinking they’re leaving a trail of their conversations behind.
Are your company secrets being leaked right under your nose? Employees using chat clients can not only waste hours of time chatting with family and friends, they can use a chat client to send sensitive data to anyone.
Spouses, Boyfriends, & Girlfriends
Is your spouse or significant other talking to an old flame? Chat logs are a great way to determine if they are staying faithful.
Because the chat analysis software is embedded in a USB thumb drive, you can easily take it anywhere and use it on any computer you own.
Because we know how to distinguish between chat logs and other files of similar format, searching a hard drive of any size is fast and easy. Chat logs are generally small as files go so copying them to the stick and parsing them out so they are easy to read is a snap.
The Chat Stick looks like any other USB drive. No one would suspect the device can be used to see what they are saying with chat programs when they are using your computer.
So if you are hooked, curious etc, the cost is $99. Which seems expensive, but you can’t put a price on putting your mind at ease or getting that one critical piece of information. In that case, it’s invaluable.
