TechBits: product updates (7.24.13)

A couple of companies previously featured on TechBits are upgrading products we've showed you before.

Seagate has added pass through wi-fi to its wireless external hard drives. {}The line is now re branded as Wireless Plus. {}You can use them to share your data with other people wirelessly, or even surf the web while still connected to the drive. {}That's a big plus for people who had to reconnect when switching between their data and online content.

FreedomPop is also re branding its personal hotspots. {}The new Overdrive Pro will automatically step down from 4G to 3G when the faster connection is not available. {}That means it can be used in the Birmingham area, which currently isn't served by the network's 4G service. {}Data is still free until the user hits a cap. {}Users will also pay a deposit for the unit, instead of buying it outright. {}The new Overdive Pro has extra additions. {}An LCD screen gives connection info and a tally of the amount of data used. {}The unit also has a MicroSD slot, allowing a user to store data which can be shared with other users.{}
