Recently, a startup called Keepod launched a new product, a simple flashdrive with a bootable Linux operating system incorporated, allowing everyone to have proprietary access to computing resources.
Keepod recently raised over $40,000 against a goal of just $38,000 on Indiegogo.
According to the company, “Globally there are 5 billion people who still do not have access to personal computing. There are many great initiatives that try to bridge the digital divide, but with little success thus far. By separating the Software from the Hardware, Keepod manages to overcome most of the traditional constraints that were preventing personal computing from many.”
On Thursday, April 10 at 11:00 Eastern, Keepod co-founder and CEO Nissan Bahar will join me for a live chat about his innovative new product.
Tune in here then to watch the interview live.
Our secure and lightweight operating system, Keepod OS, is designed for users to have their own portable OS, using any PC as nothing more than an empty shell.
Keepod OS runs from any USB drive, eliminating the dependency on one computer, and was developed emphasizing privacy protection, user choice and digital freedom.
We believe that computing should be accessible to everyone as well as being more secure and fun.
Keepod Ltd is registered in the UK and employs staff around the world. Our team is located in: London, Tel Aviv, Milan, Paris, Frankfurt and St. Petersburg.
