Live Mesh ‘rocks’ my world


Like many people today, I use multiple computers and use multiple mobile devices (Mobile Phone, iPod etc).  I have a designated ‘work’ PC, a Dell laptop and an Apple Macbook laptop (which I think of as a ‘lifestyle computer’). My lifestyle computer carries all of my digital media – music, pictures and video. My Windows Mobile phone carries all of my Outlook contacts and syncs my content from my Dell Laptop.  My iPod connects to my Macbook. As you can see, I spend time in the content management space. But I’m not alone.

One of the biggest issues I have, is keeping my digital life synced. The above scenario, is just one consumer’s perspective. What about a small business? Today, more people are working from a greater number of computer devices. There soon comes a need to backup. Sharing and syncing content is a headache.  Of course, there are options. Copy data to memory sticks or email data to yourself. Functional solutions but hardly elegant Microsoft’s Live Mesh platform can help consumers and businesses in data management – Best of all it is free.

I dream of a day when my data is stored in the cloud. No matter, which device I pick up, it recognises who I am and securely logs me on to the Internet.  My files are copied over to my device and are available wherever I go. Live Mesh, is a first step to that dream.

Live Mesh is currently invite only :-((  But signup over at or for chances to signup to the technical beta
