Samsung does have a 5-in. WiFi only thingie that
competes with the iPod more or less. It is not Linux
but is Android. With Deja Office you sync to your Windoze.
Before long somebody will do a similar program that
syncs with Linux.
Semi-related: I use the cloud, and I share some of the distrust
a few of you express. I selected SpiderOak because it
has a VERY strong security model. Everything is encrypted
on your Linux, Mac or Windows machine.
It is FREE for the first 2GB. It is way more flexible (and secure)
than, e.g. DropBox. If you wish to try it, consider using
this link. You'll get extra FREE storage, as will I. ;)
If you download SpiderOak and hate it, well, that is what delete or rm
is for. Please consider clicking the link below. Yes, it helps ME grow
MY free Spider Oak storage. Is that so wrong? //laugh//
It has a sweet Sync capability among your devices, e.g. a folder
on Linux and a folder on another OS.
It also can be used across all your machines INCLUDING removable
drives with just the single licence.
yes, I like these guys. Their stake in the ground is security.
Oh, they have iPhone and Android clients also. The Android
one is beta, not as powerful as it needs to be, but improving.
