iTwinCNET's Natali Morris takes a First Look at the iTwin, a dual-USB file transfer system, at CES 2011 in Las Vegas.
-Hi, I'm Natali Morris with CNET. You're watching our coverage of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show, and today we're taking a first look at iTwin. It looks like just a little tiny USB key. What it does is allow one computer to talk to another anywhere else in the world where you can get an online connection. It's a very simple thing. These 2 ends of the USB are twins. So, one will authenticate the other. So, you plug this into your computer, say, at your office or your home, and then you take this with you on the go. Wherever you go next, you plug this into your next computer and it will allow you to access anything that you've put on this drive. You don't need a password to log in because, once you have this, it essentially is your password. The two of them are twins. You couldn't log in to someone else's iTwin. These 2 are exact twins. These cost $99. They're available on iTwin.com and they just launched here in the US. Unfortunately, they only work with PCs. A Mac version will be available later this summer.
