Something cool is being planned out.. Wait and watch..

An Information Week article reports that Microsoft is teaming up with SanDisk to provide users a complete image of their desktops in their pockets, allowing them access not only to their data…but also their applications and user interface setup while on the go. ‘The companies plan to add a security layer to the offering using SanDisk’s TrustedFlash security and digital rights management technology. The effort will elevate “simple flash storage to a whole new level of customer benefit,” said Will Poole, corporate VP for Microsoft’s Market Expansion Group. Microsoft also plans to seek out third party-hardware developers to support the initiative, the company said. As part of the plan, SanDisk will phase out its U3 technology, which adds some smart features to USB devices. Independent software developers that have created U3-compatible applications will be offered help migrating their products to the new technology, which has yet to be named.’

Imagine awesome future full of technology !! I would like to live there Happy

Stay tuned.. Wave
