Now this sounds like a truly useful device. No wires to get tangled, don't have to worry about if you have the right connection for it. If you have wifi on your device your good to go. No muss, no fuss file sharing.

"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
Another thing that is cool from talking to a Kingston engineer at Pax East is that these things have a full API that can be downloaded so that people can build custom applications if they have the know how and the desire.
Im curious what is the pricing? Its a cool device but only if the price is right? RIP Bob Barker i think?
As dave says "Want it"
