Merging Worlds

Filed under: desktop,web — admin @ 2:15 pm

The have been a number of launches recently that have brought the web and the desktop closer together. Microsoft’s Office Live (which I have been using regularly since its launch) has been joined by Live Mesh (which I was finally allowed to join yesterday); Yahoo are trying to merge the two worlds with their BrowserPlus; whilst yesterday saw the launch of a Google Earth plugin so it can be viewed in a browser.

Whilst having files or programs stuck in one place will soon seem very old fashioned, it did have advantages:
- You generally had a choice about whether to take the office home with you.
- And most importantly you always had an excuse for not doing a piece of work…’it’s finished, just on my other flash drive/laptop/computer’.
