You also could run remote-control software. Or you could use DataPod--a new peer-to-peer system that an Israel-based startup is introducing here at Demo 2004. DataPod is due for launch in April; the product will list for $100, with an introductory price of $70.<br /><br />Targeted at business types with multiple PCs, DataPod syncs files, e-mail, and browser bookmarks between two or more PCs over the Internet. The software runs in the background on each system?-say, an office computer and a home one--transferring data on the fly via an SSL-encrypted peer-to-peer networking connection. For instance, when an e-mail message arrives on your work system, DataPod notices and automatically copies it to your home machine. The system also offers a browser-based interface, providing access to data from any Internet-connected PC."<br /><br />If you've always struggled with the task of keeping multiple PCs in sync, this article will interest you.
