I usually fall into the camp that a flash drive is just a flash drive…it holds stuff, makes life easier and provides an easy way to transfer and store data like music, documents and pictures. I didn’t think there was really much room for improvement for a flash drive, but alas, there is!
This Kingston Data Traveler 109 comes with UrDrive technology that turns a passive storage device into an active one, with ways to more easily categorize, store and interact with your data.
Oh, did I mention it comes with Norton PC Checkup? I dig that.
You plug this baby in and it will allow you to access your RSS feeds, bookmarks and favorites from any computer. It also gets you access to online data storage as an additional form of backup protection. I dig it.
If you have kids, it has technology to help kids browse the net safely, but also has some preloaded games for them to play. I can imagine that if you’re travelling with the kiddos this holiday season this could be a very, very useful tool. Also, if you want to help your less than tech-savvy parents access your music and vacation photos while visiting for holiday dinner, this makes it that much easier!
I really didn’t think a flash drive could do much more than store stuff, so I was pleasantly surprised at how handy this was! I love that it’s small, it’s not ugly like most flash drives and that it helps me organize my life. I can see this making an awesome gift since it’s practical, affordable (around $10 for 8GB) and easy to use. Oh, did I mention that we’re giving one away? You lucky ducky you!
*I was given free product for review, but that in no way effects my opinion…opinions are entirely my own and I’m pretty sure no corporate body would ever want to take credit for my rambling thoughts!
