In January of this year, Intel announced that its CEO at the time, Bob Swan, would be stepping down.

While most people use on-device file managers such as Filza to tackle their file system browsing needs, Xenon is a newly released jailbreak tweak buy iOS developer Aspen that lets you access your handset’s file system from the comfort of your Mac or Windows PC — with the full luxury of the larger display that accompanies it.

For the reason mentioned above, I would highly recommend a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called SendToDesktop by iOS developer Sudhip for both Linux and Windows users, as it can make sharing files from your iPhone or iPad to your personal computer a breeze.
