The worst part of travelling is leaving your computer behind. I can take hostel beds, I can handle day after day of fast food and motel breakfasts, twenty hour plane flights and ten hour layovers are nothing. But leaving my desktop rig at home? That's a straight-up pain in the ass. Or it was. Iomega is bound and determined to give us one more reason to ramble.
Their new v.Clone doftware allows users to create an image of their primary PC and store it on a hard drive. When connected to "virtually any PC", the image can be used to mimic your primary computer. Now, v.Clone is NOT the same as remotely accessing your desktop. It actually creates a copy of your PC's operating system, applications, and personal settings. v.Clone lets you take your data and settings with you wherever you go, and it also keeps everything nicely in sync. When you come back home, you just plug the hard drive into your main computer and v.Clone will sync everything up. The press release is unclear, but you might be required to use an Iomega portable HDD for this tech to work. We'll know more after the CES demonstration.
