Actually, the press releases have started issuing forth in advance of next week’s CES show, as companies hope to get some publicity before the deluge. Which sounds like a good idea to me. For example, SanDisk has announced its new Cruzer Titanium Plus, a USB drive that automatically backs up files online.
Due to be shown off next week, it’s a 4GB USB stick, which whenever you copy a file to it, also copies that file to an online storage area. You can then access it from any computer if you lose the USB drive (or just don’t have it with you at the time). Oh, and it’s secure too, with password-protection for the drive itself, as well as the online account.
Cruzer Titanium Plus goes on sale in the US in March, and will cost $59.99 there. You get six months of free online backups, but after that, you’ll have to pay $29.99 a year. Or you could just register for a Gmail account and email any sensitive / precious files to that, for free. Your choice.
