Reducing security risks from open source software

Memory specialist Kingston has brought USB 3.0 to its USB Flash drive family.

The DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 doesn't quite deliver the full SuperSpeed 5Gb/s experience, but its claimed 80MB/s (640Mb/s) read speed and 60MB/s (480Mb/s) write speeds put it ahead of what a USB 2.0-based equivalent can deliver.

At those speeds, a 2GB file will copy in 25 seconds or so.

Since USB 3.0 incorporates a separate USB 2.0 bus, the DataTraveler is backwards compatible with the older standard, of course.

The stick comes in 16, 32 and 64GB capacities, each backed by a five-year warranty. Prices run from £57 to £173. ®
