Portable Apps: your PC in a USB key

5 07 2006

your PC in a USB key The latest edition of Australian PC User magazine, released today, has a feature on Portable Apps, as well as full versions of various PAs on its cover DVD. These applications are stored, and can be executed, on an ordinary USB key, allowing a user to take not only their data, but a fully configured application environment, around with them in their pocket, to use on any current PC.

It’s not exactly my idea of “mobile learning,” but may still be of interest to educators involved with learning mobility.

Software on the cover disc includes a portable CD and DVD burner, backup utility, web browser, email client, office package, image editor and more.
