"I carry a program that synchronizes with my Microsoft Outlook. Now I can carry my Outlook files on my smart drive. I leave my laptop at home. I go to the office with this tiny drive, I plug it into my desktop machine at the office, use my email all day, and in the evening, I take the smart drive out, take it back. Then I can sit with my laptop on my sofa, in front of the TV, and still process the same email on the same U3 smart drive." In addition to convenience, the drives add security. You're bringing your personal files with you. In addition to Email and virus protection applications, USB drives may include software to play MP3, edit and display digital photos, and instant message. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
