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.

Yoggie Pico Personal Security Assistant

I wrote about the Yoggie Security System a while back and today found a special deal for the standalone USB security stick. To peak your interest here’s short quote from my previous article:
The Yoggie Pico device is a self contained mini computer on a USB stick which runs and manages 13 different security applications. At first thought – doesn’t seem like much – why not load up 13 security applications on your computer and save a USB port? Well, the beauty lies within the combination of a self contained unit, a processor to run it self and the combination of hardware and software to protect your computer.

Review: PNY IronKey 4GB Flash Drive

Luigi of I4U had some time yesterday to review the PNY IronKey USB 4GB UFD. In short it’s a great security device but you give up performance for such security. The PNY IronKey uses AES encryption which is always on and keys generated by the on-board cryptochip uses FIPS 140-2 true compliant random number generation. Since the IronKey uses the cryptochip the keys used to generate access never leave the UFD (and onto computer).

The PNY IronKey has an on board stealth browser via Firefox and is entirely incased with a water tight sealant which sits underneath the rugged, outside enclosure. Continue Reading
