SanDisk Gives MacFanBoy Love With Secure Flash DriveThe Mac users usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to software and hardware support for the Mac OS. Most products and applications are specifically design for the Windows user, knowing this is the largest install base of computer owners. However, the tide is shifting. I’m not sure if the popularity of the iPod and iPhone are the sole reason, or if users are just tired of the buggie OS of Windows but Mac computers are popping up everywhere. Friends, work, school – well always school – and even my grandparents house.
Today SanDisk is giving the Mac Fan Boy a bit of love. SanDisk introduces the first secure flash drive which fully supports operation under the Mac OS. The SanDisk Cruizer Enterprise is a USB stick that may be used on either a PC or Mac and has the full ability for data encryption of the drive. With a friendly user interface, the owner can unlock files and data on the stick for using and sharing. Once the drive is locked down or disconnected the encryption is back on.
