JP Rey, A Duc, april 200999Live Mesh : Why ?SyncShareAccess10
JP Rey, A Duc, april 2009Because ofThe Wide range of devicesDevices living in multiple placesFiles and programs located on specific devices or places
New needs will emerge, described here after (link with the previous presentation of Olaf)
Sync: Stop e-mailing yourself. Get files across your devices by synchronizing them instead. Add each device to your mesh by installing the Live Mesh software, and then choose folders to sync. You can sync a folder with only one or two of your devices, or with all of them. (cf. olafs Demo )
Share: Live Mesh makes it easy to share your stuff. Invite others to share a Live Mesh folder and keep it in sync on everyones devices as files are added or updated. Want to know whats happening in folders youre sharingsuch as when members are invited or a file is changed? Live Mesh News notifies you every step of the way.
Access: When you sign up for Live Mesh, you automatically get your own personal Live Desktopyour Windows PC on the webcomplete with 5 GB of free storage. Synchronize files to your Live Desktop, and youll be able to access them using almost any web browser, no matter where you are. And who says you cant be in two different places at once? With Live Mesh, you can connect remotely from one computer to another, so you can access files, programs, and settings as if you were sitting in front of that remote computer.

Notification: Looking for a snapshot of your mesh? The notifier lets you see news about whats happening in your mesh and quickly check the status of allYour synchronized folders and devices. It stays out of your way while you work, but is always available by clicking the Live Mesh icon in the notificationarea of your Windows taskbar, the menu bar of your Mac, or the taskbar of your Live Desktop.
Live Desktop: Your Windows PC on the web complete with 5 GB of free storage space where you can see all your synchronized folders in one place.
