“so your device connects everything to an iPhone?” The man asked after the pause.
“Well, not just an iPhone. It will connect everything to anything as long as you connect to the device if that makes sense.”
“Now I have to say I am confused” the seatmate said. He looked puzzled.
“In the modern world everything communicates, would you agree with that? A lot of vendors talk about the Internet of things. What I created is a device and software that manages those connections. It acts as if it were a personal cache.” he said.
His seatmate looked confused and struggled to say something until finally he said “I just don’t see value. I can do that with my phone today, why do I need your device?”
“You are right, you can do everything with your iPhone today. What my invention does is actually taking that concept and expanding it. My device has a connection with the software that runs in the background. The software looks at your calendar and pre-loads the information you will need for that day onto the device. No matter where you are it creates secure connections for you automatically. So in an insecure location? You have a secure encrypted connection thanks to the device. No one will see your information.” He answered.
“But then I am at risk if I lose your device. All my information cached and otherwise is there for someone to take.” the seatmate was starting to grasp the concept.
“Well first off, there is a fingerprint reader on the back side of the device that requires your fingerprint to connect to anything. The activation period for the device is managed by the software. The more secure your information, the more often you have to log in. But if you are carrying information like that around you are used to that. The device is a brick unless the person who its connected to, touches it.” He answered.
“Wow,” The seatmate said. “Still having my information locally is why I carry a laptop.” he continued.
“Sure. Agreed. However, is your laptop smart enough to cache information for offline use, simply because your available bandwidth is decreasing?” He asked.
