This year has proven to be quite something for technological innovation and development. Well, I think so. Although I probably say that every year. Anyway, another service that was launched by ASUS at IFA 2012 was AiCloud and while it may have been a little sidelined by the muscular goodness of the Tytan or the chic styling of the Taichi, it is a service that shouldn’t be overlooked.
ASUS AiCloud is essentially a blend of cloud-based convenience with the necessities of technology. You can use the Smart Access feature to keep your information on your home network or online storage facility and makes it easily, you guessed it, accessible by almost any device – from a smartphone to a PC. As long as the device has an internet connection, it can find data on AiCloud.
This is an extraordinarily useful tool, especially if you share a house with other people and want to share files and give them access to other devices. This is especially true of any home that contains small humans, a.k.a children. For an adult, one viewing of a movie or TV show is generally enough. For a child the same show can happily be enjoyed at least 50 times and this can drive the aforementioned adult slightly insane. Enter the diversity of AiCloud and you have the kids ensconced in their room, on the Transformer, watching their show, while you enjoy something a little less, well, annoying.
The issue of compatibility is neatly taken care of too, as selective file sharing between compatible Windows, Mac and Linux devices is perfectly alright. Which is nice.
The ASUS AiCloud allows you to listen to music, stream movies, work on documents and almost anything else you can think of, from anywhere. As long as you have an internet connection, you have AiCloud. ASUS also have AiCloud compatible routers which make life a lot cooler as they let you connect to as many devices as you like and you can connect to other compatible routers in the vicinity too.
The service has a bunch of features and they are very well highlighted in the ad that ASUS recently released to coincide with the launch. Take a look and see what you think. Then pick up your keyboard and tell me your views below.
