More Flash for Flash Cards

SanDisk is working with Microsoft on a new generation of flash drives that make it easier to take your computing environment with you.

Many smart IT folks long ago figured out how to bring their files and applications anywhere they go. In the old days, some even toted around hard drives and slapped them into PCs at remote offices or at home.

Flash drives make this much easier, and the U3 technology from SanDisk is supposed to add core application functionality such as e-mail and browsing to the drives. Maybe I can finally stop lugging my laptop wherever I go!

How do you deal with having multiple computers? Do you have a common set of data? Does anyone actually use Briefcase? I'm dying to know at [email protected].
