I don't believe this is new or different, SanDisk's U3 software has been doing this for years.
But, that doesn't mean it's not cool.
I was interested right up until you said "Norton," which, as a professional IT technician, I despise. It's bloated, slow, ineffective, and expensive, and I *WILL* *NOT* *HAVE* *IT* on any computer under my control. Which means the first thing I will have to do with all new Kingston USB flash drives is remove the urDrive partition, just as I do for U3.
Really cool idea providing cloud storage and applications but I think all that can be done more efficiently with dropbox and portable apps for free, still a neat product idea.
(*On a side not, why does the female voice actor have an accent?)
("urDrive enhances security on the PC with Norton PC Checkup, which cans for virus infections")
I didn't know that virus scanners "cans for virus infections". ROFL
Thank god I wasn't the only going reading along "urDrive enhances security on the PC with Nor...ton... next article."
I just bought the Kingston SE9 16gb flash drive with urDrive. Now I wish I didn't. This is easily the SLOWEST flash drive I have ever owned and I've owned a lot of them. How could the DT101 G2 be so quick and the newer SE9 be so annoyingly slow? What teh f Kingston, get it together!
And P.S. People don't buy flash drives for the software on them. In most cases, noobs just get confused by it. Techies reformat to remove it immediately for space and speed. Please don't become another Sandisk, I simply will not buy their flash drives anymore because they're cheap construction, short life-span, and garbage pre-installed apps.
