A few weeks ago I bought a 4GB SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB 2.0 Flash drive ($39.95 @ Costco) with the intent of it being a convenient way to move files around. After using for a bit to do just that I’ve been playing with portable applications and I must say they rock! I’m using FireFox, $g(Google Talk), Skype, Thunderbird and Trillian all working on this drive. Basically, this drive contains my communications tools and has made it easy to move quickly onto my new work machine.
Kudos to the folks over at www.portableapps.com!
[Update: July 24] The apps just keep coming. I just added Notepad++ and 7Zip to my drive and there is now a PortableApps Suite available. Cool!
