Not having access to all my data whenever I need it has been a pet peeve of mine. Before wireless, it was really a problem, as I was stuck in one place to do my work and that wasn’t always the most convenient place if the reference material I needed was in different place. Hopefully, Adobe AIR will do as much for the knowledge worker and traveler as wireless has done.

I’ve been using both Google Docs and Zoho. While they my still have improvements to make for power users, for day-to-day users they’re just as good as installed applications – and remember, they’re still in beta. The nicest feature? Even when they become paid applications, the cost savings in not having to purchase upgrades every year, plus the time savings in not having to download and install upgrades (and the time spent on your knees praying they will work on your computer) should be a considerable savings.
