Vuze releases fully portable version of popular torrent client
Many of you are probably already downloading your torrent files directly to an external hard drive. Looking for a slick, portable client for torrenting on the go with your drive? Vuze has a new app for that.
Called Vuze to Go, the version makes use of Ceedo's application virtualization and costs $9.99. Because of the way it's packaged, VTG will run even on systems that don't have Java installed. All the functionality of the original open source client is there - meaning you can fire up your hard drive at a buddy's place at stream your movies to a PS3 or Xbox 360 right from your HDD.
While there are free portable torrent alternatives (like uTorrent), Vuze's added media functions may make it a useful purchase for some. Vuze Marketing Director Chris Thun told Torrent Freak "we believe that if we're solving a real problem in an elegant way, our users will be willing to pay for it."
