“I LOVE the Clear or “Glow In the Dark” Back Cover from HyperShield. They are really flexible, protective, tight fitting and light”
“Using the Apple Smart Cover along with the HyperShield is just the BEST combo that I’ve found”
“The price is right. The functionality is right. And the weight is light”
“It’s just a no brainer”

Here’s a different take on flash drives for devices that don’t have USB ports. The HyperDrive iFlashDrive lets you easily transfer files between iDevices and a Mac or a PC; it comes with 8GB, 16GB, or 32GB of storage and an Apple app.
You can store, view, and manage files, and delete, move, copy, and email media or document files. The iFlashDrive has a USB port at one end, and it plugs in to an Apple 30-pin dock connector at the other end.

Jennifer Lynn talks to TMCnet about CloudFTP at CES 2012
Goal: $100k. Current: $262,351. Finished Jan 6.
Wirelessly connect any USB drive to your iOS device be it iPhone, iPod or iPad. Genius. One of those things you can’t believe nobody did before. We’d love to quickly connect a flash drive of films to our iPad, or even connect a digital camera directly – this is brilliant.

Crowd sourced funding site Kickstarter has been kicking ass for would-be entrepreneurs.
So far in 2012, two projects have raised over $1 million. Several others have surpassed $250,000.
A project must reach its funding goal before time runs out or no money changes hands. That way creators don’t get locked into developing a project if they don’t have enough money and contributors don’t get stuck paying for crummy ideas.
Project owners have to promise something of value in exchange to those that contribute, but not the typical financial incentives such as ownership, a share of profits, or repayment. Instead the so-called “Kickstarter economy” is based on other types of rewards like copies of the work, limited editions or just plain fun experiences (such as dinner with a famous person).
Here are the 8 biggest awards for tech products so far…
Daniel Chin raised $262,351 to turn thumb drives into file servers.
Who: Daniel Chin founder of Apple accessory maker Sanho, in Fremont, CA.
How much: Chin got backers to contribute $262,351 when the project closed on January 6. This was fortunate as he was asking for more than the typical Kickstart project, $100,000.
For what: CloudFTP will turn any USB storage into a device that can wirelessly share files with the iPad and iPhone. Chin offered backers free products and also promised those that pledged $500 to include them in the ads placed he would place in a couple of popular Mac magazines.

We’re intrigued by Fremont, California-based Sanho Corporation and their new CloudFTP, a pocket-sized adapter intended to turn any USB storage device into a wireless file server. The gadget is aimed at letting you share multimedia files through Wi-Fi across PCs, tablets and smartphones in your home. We’ll surely be taking a closer look at this nifty little gadget later this year.
