I’ve seen the Samsung YP-53 show up on several websites this week and decided to take a closer look and figure out what keeps this from being just another MP3 player. Turns out the Yepp is a USB drive that comes with up to 256 MB of memory and has an FM tuner on board. This would be cool enough but it also has software that connects you to your home PC when you plug it into the USB port of ANY computer with internet access. The connection is a secure connection and would be an excellent way to access your computer from public systems. I couldn’t find out if this also works behind corporate firewalls.
