Iomega's Clik!

Iomega is getting ready to put a big push behind Clik....

"The primary features of Clik is the fact that it's a very small disc, it's about 2 by 2 inch square, holds 40 megabytes, and the other denoting feature is the fact that it's so affordable. The discs are 10 dollars apiece."
Iomega's Mike McCamon. The original Clik drive, launched not too long ago, can work with a desk top computer, a notebook, or in the palm of your hand. Using batteries and a neat little attachment it can transfer pictures from digital camera memory cards onto Clik discs. Now Iomega is launching the Clik mobile drive that simply slides into a PC card slot on notebooks or Windows CE devices...

"It's the size of a PC card. There's no cables, there's no extra drive. That's actually the entire drive that's the size of a PC card. You just slide it into the PC card slot of your notebook computer and you can start using Clik discs with your notebook."

Pretty amazing. Easy to install and use. You can even configure the drive to automatically back up important files as they change. The future of the Clik line is with a variety of digital devices ranging from wireless phones to cameras. Hopefully, there will be higher capacity discs as well. The PC card drive sells for under two hundred dollars.
