Synchronize Your Data With Multiple PC's, Mobile Devices

Every day you probably run your hands across various different keyboards, touchpads, and plastic buttons. But working with so many different devices poses some challenges.

The hard part is getting the various products to talk to each other. You may store your business files on your work computer and your personal files on your home laptop. Your cell phone may be the hub of your social life, but that means nothing when you surf the Web on a Mac. You'd like to watch movies on this system while you work, but they're stored on a Windows-based computer elsewhere in your apartment.

Sure, you can use removable media to transfer files, but the process is slow, you have to keep the media on hand in order to access files, and the cost of scratching a disc, losing a thumb drive, or dropping a portable hard drive is high. In the case of frequently updated files, you have to run back to your host system to copy new material. And of course you can't do anything by phone.

The solution to this problem of data creep is synchronization. Lots of free applications and utilities can ease your multidevice lifestyle by keeping your critical files up-to-date and accessible to all of your deskbound or mobile systems. The result is a smooth, seamless (and free) process for ensuring access to the latest versions of much-needed files.

I rave about Live Mesh to anybody who I think would care. It is actually a very nice free service from the worlds most hated company.

Nooooo....Apple does not provide this service. :wink: Actualy this should be in software discussion but my mind was on "multiple devices" when I read it, so it went in hardware in error. If it should be moved, let there be magic. :wink:
