23rd Apr 2008 | 13:29
Mac and mobile versions on the way soon
More news on Microsoft’s Live Mesh service from this week’s Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, with the launch of the service that promises to finally allow you to seamlessly connect all your computers and mobile devices together on the go.
The service is currently PC only, yet Microsoft promises that Mac and mobile versions are due very soon.
5GB in the cloud
Each of your computers (and, in time, mobile devices) will appear as an icon in a Mesh folder on your desktop. Any data you place in a Mesh folder is instantly available across your whole network, including a ‘virtual device’ in the cloud which you can access from anywhere (with a 5GB data limit).
You can also choose to add other users to share the data you keep in your Mesh folder.
