CHENNAI: Imagine losing your USB drive with important data while travelling. You can only fret. Four years ago, when Chennai-born Lux Anantharaman, then a researcher specializing in cryptography and security at a government-run lab in Singapore, went through such an ordeal, he decided to do something about it.

Insert the USB drive you are carrying in any computer and you can access all your files securely and without the need for any third-party software. For iTwin, all you need is internet access. And it costs just about Rs 5,000 ($99).



I guess it's only Times Of India could get so excited about a something similar to Remote Desktop / Dropbox / SugarSync - in 2011!

Here is what Engadget had to say about this in 2009:


Finally, a product that might finally make this whole internet thing worthwhile by allowing someone to copy a file over it. Amazing, right?

I don't see any reason to jump with joy because some madarasi finally figured out how to use the internet.

Dikhaawon pe mat jaao, apni akal ladaao…
