Kingston Technology Company, Inc. is introducing the Kingston U3 DataTraveler, a smart drive that combines storage with software, including Pass2Go, ACDSee and Zinio.
The U3 smart drive is designed as a product that people can use to carry, store and launch their own applications from any PC, wherever they go.
One of the goals of the U3 platform is to make software programs, personal preferences, passwords, settings, and files more portable, personal, and protected. U3 smart drives feature a "U3 Launchpad" from which applications can be opened on Windows 2000/XP.
The Kingston U3 DataTraveler smart drive comes preloaded with Pass2Go, ACDSee and Zinio software packages.
The Pass2Go portable automated password manager, form filler, and password generator offers users secure, automated logins to online accounts and completes online registration forms with one click. No trace of Pass2Go is left on any computer, and it encrypts passwords (and generates random passwords) for complete data security. Pass2Go is the portable version of RoboForm.
The ACDSee is an image viewer, graphics converter, and digital imaging software solution lets users acquire, find, organize, edit, manage and share photos and slideshows from any PC, ACDSee supports JPEG, BMP, TIFF, GIF and PNG file formats.
The Zinio reader transforms print magazines into digital format, for the look and feel of print with the convenience of digital. Publications are instantly available and accessible online and offline, fully interactive with links to flash, video and audio clips -- and users have the ability to search, highlight, paperclip, annotate, print and more. Users receive four free issues of six popular titles of digital publications, and can then subscribe to additional titles at substantial discounts over newsstand prices.
Kingston U3 users can upgrade to enhanced versions of the Pass2Go and ACDSee software packages at 50-60 percent off the retail price.
