Live Mesh Live?
Live Mesh is a Microsoft technology that lets you synchronize data across the
Internet and keep it all current on different devices. This way your cell phone,
home PC and work laptop can all have your girlfriend's phone number, photo and
schedule. Oh, and Live Mesh apparently can also be used for business!
I've been worried that Live Mesh is too complex, will take too long to materialize,
that applications then have to be written against it and may, in the end, not
work nearly as well as promised.
I may get some answers soon. Microsoft
has four apps that show how the Mesh is supposed to work. The news that
apps exist is more exciting than the apps themselves, which include a bulletin
board (weren't these old hat in the '80s?), a polling program and a multi-user
crossword puzzle. Can't wait!
