I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly done my fair share of plugging in a flash drive to and fro between computers to copy files, which is why I can’t believe I haven’t heard of PQI’s Cool Drive U360. It’s a flash drive that can also act as a bridge between two computers via USB, allowing for 2-way data transfer, eliminating the need to setup or join a full-fledged LAN. The Cool Drive U360’s transfers data at up to 21 MB/s.
However, the file transfer is mediated by a program called Ur-Transfer, so there’s a chance that the device is for computers running Windows only. Sad face for me and my Mac. The software can also synchronize Outlook data, or you can tell it which folders you want to be synced. Sweet. PQI’s press release also says that the software’s icon will reflect the remaining capacity on the Cool Drive U360’s flash memory.
The Cool Drive U360 will be available in varying capacities, from 4GB to 16 GB. Price and date of availability are still unknown; better bookmark PQI’s website for future updates on this very practical device.
