Or anything else, really. But that grabbed your attention, didn't it?
Very cool idea here. My non-tech brain is interpreting that Stormfly, currently in kickstarter mode, is a flash drive on steroids, deer antlers, and any other possibly harmful over-the-counter supplement. Via Guyism.
Basically, Stormfly is a 16GB flash drive with three parts: A 4GB shared folder that stores your data, 4GB for the user’s home base, and 8GB for the operating system. Essentially, you plug it into a computer, turn the computer on, follow a few prompts and enter a few passwords, and you’re using the hardware of the computer, but your own software.
If this sounds familiar, you’ve probably installed Ubuntu: It is similar to installing Linux off a USB stick. The difference is that your apps and your data don’t vanish when you shut down. It’s also got 128-bit encryption, and doesn’t leave any data on the host computer, so, if you want to, say, look up stuff at work and not get caught? This would be the perfect solution.
