iTwin USB File Sharing Device Now in the United States

iTwinEarlier today iTwin announced limited availability of a first generation plug'n'play device that enables data transfer between any two computers that are connected to the internet. The device is made up of two identical parts that resemble your average everyday USB drive. Each half of the iTwin is plugged into a USB port on both computers that are to share data. This announcement from iTwin marks the first of these devices released in the United States which are being sold in limited quantities for the holiday season.

With the mobility of today's population, many people use multiple devices between work and home. The only problem is that files are kept in silos and are not merged easily. Even if you have a laptop, traveling through something like airport security can be difficult. Even your USB devices can be easily misplaced adding additional problems. The iTwin allows you to keep all of your files in one place while providing access to them from anywhere. The best thing is that your only capacity limit is your computer's hard drive because the iTwin drive does not store any data.

This device is inherently secure and utilizes 256-bit AES encryption. Only the two halves of the iTwin device know the key, and the iTwin generates a new key every time the two halves are paired together. If you lose one half of the iTwin, then you can disable the connection between the devices denying access to anybody who may find the other half. If that isn't enough for you, then you can also password protect your device.

According to iTwin CEO Lux Anantharaman, "Everyone can relate to the problems that we set out to solve when developing the iTwin device. Business people and everyday consumers alike expect to be able to access important information anytime, anywhere. iTwin users can travel without laptop, copy or backup proprietary work documents, files, and folders and remotely access and edit files on one computer from another, ensuring complete control on all files with multiple contributors. It's also the best way to create a family network - share photos from the latest vacation or wedding or exchange documents. iTwin brings peace of mind with its numerous, useful applications."

Only 50 of the special edition MMX iTwins are available for purchase in the United States. They will run you $99 each and can be purchased exclusively from the iTwin online store. General availability is said to follow in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas.

The Android 3.0 Tablet: Google gives a sneak peek at their next venture.

Photo: Andy Rubin Presenting the Google-Motorola tablet prototype

At the D: Dive Into Mobile Conference, Android lead Andy Rubin gave a sneak peek of their next big project just before presenting Android 3.0 (Google's Smartphone operating software). This project is a tablet computer that Google is teaming up with Motorola to develop. Google's own Motorola tablet will of course run Android software, and according to eye-witnesses at the sneak peek, will have a screen about the same size as the iPad (a 9.7-inch diagonal measurement).

Some features reported about the prototype include typical features one might expect from a tablet computer. For example, the screen shifts its orientation as the user turns the tablet. An intriguing surprise, however, was its no-button design. Despite being an Android based system, the prototype lacked the signature buttons typically found on units running Android used for navigating the software. The reasons cited in the prototype demonstration were that, given the orientation-shift feature, fixed buttons on the hardware obviously cannot shift with the user. Also, Rubin apparently stated that the developers of Android have been giving much more thought to simplifying the software, where common general-use apps are no longer buried in the system and hence difficult to get to; hence making a more user-intuitive system.

In addition to demonstrating the tablet prototype, Rubin's presentation also doubled as a presentation of Android 3.0, available on all tablets and smartphones running Android software in early 2011. Some of the virtues of this new version of the software include the ability to store more apps and widgets onto the screen and a new version of Google Maps, which can navigate in three-dimensions. Android 3.0 will launch first on the table that Google is working directly with Motorola to develop and then later on other tablets and smartphones.

Motorola Plans 7" and 10" Tablets and 4G Smartphones for Early Next Year

Co-CEO at Motorola Sanjay Jha unveiled Friday that the company will be adding its name to the long list of companies in the market with tablets early next year. In the very near future, Motorola plans on unleashing new 7-inch and 10-inch tablets. However, the company's main focus in the mobile phone industry will still be smartphones.

As the keynote speaker for the Credit Suisse 2010 Technology Conference, Jha stated that he felt tablets were viable in not only the 7-inch size but also the 10-inch size. Sanjay was pretty vague on the details but given the success of the Droid, Motorola's hottest selling smartphone, it is hard to imagine that these tablets would be running anything other than Android.

According to Jha, "I believe that tablets are a very important growth opportunity for us, but we have to differentiate. Software differentiation is going to be very important."

Jha also went on to discuss that Motorola would field 4G devices early next year as well. However, Jha also mentioned that a new "competitive dynamic", as he called it, would be developing at Verizon which is the primary U.S. carrier for Motorola devices.

The company recently announced that they would be splitting the company into two separate sub-companies. Motorola Mobility is said to be the company that will cover all of Motorola's portable and home products, with Motorola Solutions being responsible for all the enterprise and networks. This split is scheduled for early next year as well, more specifically January. is news of, for and by SMBs! The Small & Medium Business Magazine!

webOS 2.0 To Be Released Soon

Palm's Josh Marinacci confirmed yesterday that HP/Palm intends to get webOS 2.0 on all, that's right all, existing webOS devices. Marinacci stated that all webOS devices would be receiving the highly anticipated webOS 2.0 in "coming months", so customers shouldn't have to wait too much longer. This release date is still pretty vague, but many people are excited to see that none of the current webOS devices are going to be left out. However, different things that seem to affect carriers could hinder webOS 2.0 for some people as support for webOS from a lot of carriers is at an all time low.

If you are looking to or are interested in creating apps with features from webOS 2.0, then you will be pleased to hear that you can get into the Early Access Program. You will want to do this because the webOS 2.0 SDK is currently under a Non-Disclosure Agreement, which means it is not available to the public, which is strange considering the fact that webOS 2.0 devices, such as the Palm Pre 2, are currently being shipped.

However, when HP starts sending out OTA updates to existing phones, we should see the SDK leave its beta stage, becoming available to the general public. But, until that happens it seems we will have to wait and see what interesting and cool apps developers are going to make. Until the SDK is out of beta we will not be able to know what Synergy, Just Type and Exhibition-compatible apps are coming out.

Many people are very excited and are giving a lot of praise to both HP and Pre for committing to a solid, non-fragmented platform that spans across all of their devices which includes the Sprint Pixi and the crazy unlocked Palm Pre 2 by bringing the webOS 2.0 which, like I said above, should be arriving "in the coming months."

Crux 360 Case Turns Your iPad into a Netbook

Crux 360 CaseSo you finally broke down and dropped that pretty penny on a brand new iPad. You think it is just incredible. It has tons of features; it can do nearly anything you want it to. But what, you may ask, could make this whole thing an even sweeter deal? How about the ability to add a keyboard to your iPad thus transforming it into a full-blown netbook? Sound too good to be true? Think again, my friends.

Introducing the Crux 360 Case, a new device that can turn your simple iPad into a netbook. Now this device isn't anything new. In fact, this is the third such device to come to the market in the past two months, and chances are it will most certainly not be the last. However, the Crux 360 Case has something over its competitors in the fact that it is the best looking one out right now.

This device turns your iPad, for all intents and purposes, into a full fledged notebook, minus the obvious operating system. One of the coolest features this case has to offer is that if you get tired of using it as a netbook, then you can easily switch it back to its iPad form with the case serving as a kickstand.

A bluetooth keyboard is built directly into the lid of the device, and the device itself acts as a fully functional keyboard, stand and protective case all in one. The case only weighs 1.8 pounds and is specifically designed not to tip over. The Crux 360 Case also opens easily to any desired viewing angle consistently every time.

For those interested in a device like this, the Crux 360 Case definitely seems to be the way to go. It has many unique features and is definitely the best looking one out right now. Preorders for the Crux 360 Case are available now, and the device will cost you $149.99 when you order.
