My World for a Cable!
Travelling light is one step closer... but just as far as ever

You can probably feel my pain, when I say that one of the worst things to do when you have such a great mobile device at hand, is to rely on a larger heaver device aka the laptop, to do things that are day to day necessities. For the average mobile worker, email and access to PIM* data is the killer app, and any smartphone worth its weight (or lack of it) will be able to do that more than adequately. Companies like my own Sybase, have given me secure access to such email & PIM data with our iAnywhere Mobile Office product.
The goal of this Mobile Evangelist is to have all my presentations at hand in an always available resource and this has become more of a reality with Apple's MobileMe service and the new MobileMe iDisk application for the iPhone. With these two at my command, I can share these resources with contacts through email, without even having them as attachments. MobileMe gives me the facility to send a URL link in an email and even password protect the resource, as well as make it available to that contact for a specified time.
Now I can see my PowerPoint presentations on the iPhone, though the next natural step is unavailable, at the moment and that is showing them via a projector. Travelling light is one step closer... but just as far as ever. My world for a cable and the facility to connect.
Apple released their iDisk Application which allows you to access any files you have stored on your iDisk from your iPhone. The application is free and can be downloaded from HERE
