Planetsk, took the liberty to hide the link behind the words because the link was crossing over to the side bar!, also added the tag.

planetsk, can you write a short summary about the article too?? Or at least, give your opinion, so we know what to comment about! 🙂

This seems to take the “Remote Desktop Connection” 10000s steps ahead 🙂 It’ll be interesting when this stuff gets introduced. The PDA market might suffer a bit I feel. Anyway, PDAs are preferred when there is no computer around..and for using this smart drive, we will still need a computer/laptop around. So I guess the cannibalism wont be that baddddd. I guess I’m answering my own question:)

-HaHahaaa…I looked at it just before I left work and thought of writing some kinda summary abt it after I get home..but…things were different after I got back home..

anyways,I think the idea is cool..making things more portable and quicker..the software is free for 30 days.. can try it and see..

it’s more or less personal computing can be done anywhere..looks like it has to have Windows in the host machine..

What was the question again, Ms.Ruhiji?

“anyways,I think the idea is cool..making things more portable and quicker..the software is free for 30 days.. can try it and see..”
someone should do a review of this or at least, if you can find a link or something where it’s been reviewed, that would be good. It’s a pretty interesting concept and as flash drives get bigger and bigger (capacity increases), it’ll become even more popular. By the way, I would like to see if programs load faster through this because flash drives are supposed to be faster than hard disk drives.

Can someone please add “d” to “ba” in my previous post?? There is a typo 😦

Mr Zune,

My question was “Will the smart drives affect the PDA Market”.. I should have used proper grammer..haha..sorry about that. Feel free to edit it in order to make it more comprehensible..lol

8. shravan - September 26, 2006

I’ve added 5 d’s. Stop crying!! :p
“Will the smart drives affect the PDA Market”
Where’s the question mark??? Hehe. Just kidding. I don’t think so. Smartphones and blackberrys will affect the pda market. They’ve already done so. planetsk, I’ve added a pic to this post!

wont it be even nice if these things could be wirelessly connected to the computer..with some advanced version of blue tooth or similar products..
and then its size could be reduced so that it fits into ur cell phone..
and then key pad of ur cell phone acting as wireless keyboard to the computer..
or u just dial a number to start a program.!

well.just trying to stretch my imagination…,

This post appeared in hot post of the day and I kind of liked it,

http://webworkerdaily.com/2006/10/24/coming-soon-a-virtual-office-utopia/

from what I understand, author visualizes equal and complimentary use of internet and hard disks in future..

i like two two-word phrases used in there, ‘universal connectivity’ and ‘dumb terminals’. I have a feeling we will hear more of them in future.

Pretty relevant to the same stuff is the first Internet Governance Forum, taking place at Athens. People from all over the world are deep in discussions regarding the future of the internet.
