SanDisk unveiled a new USB stick, the Cruzer Titanium Plus. This device offers 4GB of storage capacity and costs $59.99. The Cruzer Titanium Plus is the first memory product from SanDisk that offers online backup but I wonder who will be interested in this as after six months of free service you'll have to cough up $29.99 per year to use this feature.

Features:
  • A rugged, crush-resistant metal case, reducing the risk of physical damage.
  • Optional security by turning on password protection – with AES hardware data encryption – for all files stored on the drive, preventing other people from accessing user data if the drive is lost or stolen.
  • Two years of free lost-and-found service from BoomerangIt, to increase the chances users will get the drive back if it’s misplaced. Cruzer Titanium Plus comes with a BoomerangIt sticker to put on the drive; if the drive is recovered, the owner typically pays shipping costs and provides a small reward.

    Cruzer Titanium Plus even helps protect the user against accidentally deleting important files. Files deleted from the drive can be easily recovered by signing into the online backup account.

    The online backup service for Cruzer Titanium Plus is powered by BeInSync, a leader in data backup, synchronization, access and sharing. Storage for BeInSync online backup is provided by Amazon Web Services, a subsidiary of Amazon.com that gives businesses access to in-the-cloud web services they can use to enable virtually any type of application. Amazon has spent over 12 years and billions of dollars building the infrastructure, technical knowledge, and operational excellence to operate a world class web-scale computing platform, which means Cruzer Titanium Plus user data is stored with the same technology that Amazon.com utilizes for its retail business. BeInSync further protects users by encrypting all files during transmission from Cruzer Titanium Plus to Amazon’s servers.
