The iTornado is a clever and useful little USB device that was displayed at CES 2008 last week and at the MacWorld Expo this week.
The product combined with the included software makes it very easy to transfer files between Mac and Windows based computers.
When connected to the USB ports of two computers, iTornado immediately initiates a peer-to-peer network via its patented No Software To LoadTM, or NSTL TechnologyTM, which auto-loads and auto-runs the software and drivers needed to move the data bi-directionally from one computer to another via a user-friendly split-screen display that within seconds appears on the monitor of both machines showing the contents of each machine. From this interface, files can be dragged and dropped from one machine to another at speeds of up to 25 Mb/sec. The iTornado also can be used to quickly create back-up files and is compatible with most Apple® and Microsoft® operating system programs.
iTornado, which retails for $79.95 will start shipping in March and will be available at TheTornado.com and at computer products retailers nationwide.
