My spin:Quite useful and cool is what I’d call this product. If you’ve got Internet access on your PDA, it would be a no-brainer to invest $50 in Mobilefile, which will give you access to files you need on your PC. Of course there’s enterprise solutions available to enable mobile access to corporate data, but if you want to save money or need a simply and easy solution, it appears that Mobilefile may be the answer. Of course if you have files that are not a Word, Excel or PowerPoint file….this solution would not work for you. (But I guess that’s where a notebook computer comes into play!)
