Today I decided to rename our project known as the FON Downloader as the FON Liberator as the key idea of this new device, which we hope to launch around October, is not so much that it allows you to download/upload as you can do that from your laptop as that it frees up your laptop from the hassles of downloading/uploading.
For those of you who don´t know the FON Liberator will be a Fon Social Router with a surprising feature and that is that you will be able to plug your external hard drive, iPod, pen drive or any USB storage media to the FON Liberator and download/upload pictures, video, music or any content you own to and from it WITHOUT using your laptop. In this way you can take your laptop with you when you are downloading/uploading and also liberate your laptop from hard drive and ram consumpton. Downloading/Uploading is a real pain and the Liberator frees you from enduring the slow performance in your laptop. A warning here, the FON Liberator should not be used to download/upload illegal content.
