Black Diamond Products has released the first public beta of its Internet application, WebiToome.
WebiToome allows the transfer of files using personal Web pages. It works with both permanent and dial-up Internet connections, and automatically updates a specified Web page to enable file transfers.
Incoming It permits anyone who knows the URL of the page to send files. The sender needs no software, other than a current browser. The software can handle up to ten incoming transmissions simultaneously.
Transmitted files are received directly from the sender's computer, so no intermediate storage on a central server is necessary. Other features include comprehensive transfer logging and the capacity to automatically maintain the file submission part of the Web page.
WebiToome is not a Web server, but a file receiver that works in conjunction with normal Web hosts. Available for Mac and PC, WebiToome costs $20.
