Kicking it Up a Notch
Realm Systems tried to one-up U3 (see previous post) by unveiling the Mobile Personal Server 1400E. It’s bigger – both in claimed capabilities and size. I haven’t yet stopped by their booth to get more information (though I plan to tomorrow), but their presentation showed enhanced security possibilities that caught my attention. They demonstrated the ability to cut off access to one of their USB servers from a central location. That would be tremendous protection for a lost device – even better than password or biometric security.
I definitely want to know more, but so far I’d give the edge to U3 for their smaller footprint – very important if I have to carry it around with me.
