Over the last few years, portable memory devices from manufacturs including Kingstron have become incredibly popular. The ability to save onto a device means you can take your data wherever you like.
One of the latest developments in portable data storage is U3 technology which allows people to save data as well as software applications onto a device and then that device can be plugged into any computer and then it can be used with data being resaved onto the device.
What it means in reality is that a person can store all their settings for say Skype and then take it with them and use it on any other computer. Once it is connected through the USB connection the U3 enabled device will then perform as if it was on their own computer.
And behind U3 is Israeli technology which is developed by U3's development in Kfar Saba.
The company is a joint venture between two technology powerhouses M-System and Sandisk and as the initial technology was developed by M-Systems in Israel, the company decided to use Israel as the research and development base.
Currently, eight people are employed in making sure R&D is kept up to date and U3 plans to further expand its team throughout 2006.
U3 technology has also allowed users to take the Open Office suite of applications which include word processor and be able to use it on their device.
