Olga of Tabletology recently had a failure of her HP tc1100 Tablet PC and as Murphy dictates it happened just before a trip to Paris (we’re all jealous). She reached out for suggestions on what she can do and I recommended a program I have used, Migo. Olga decided to use a similar program, Ceedo, because it was already installed on a flash drive she owned. Migo and Ceedo have similar claims that they recreate the user settings and accounts you enjoy on your normal PC and put them on a flash drive. When you have to work on a borrowed PC you plug in the flash drive and it recreates your normal work environment so it’s business as usual. Olga had trouble with Ceedo and it didn’t work for her which is too bad. Fortunately for her someone loaned her another tc1100 and saved her trip and as she stated this is indeed the ultimate sacrifice for someone to make.
Ceedo was recently reviewed by David Pogue of the New York Times who points to similar problems running some software and that the developers are working on fixes running Outlook under Ceedo. Outlook portability is the main reason I would use such a program like this and was one of the things I liked best about Migo. I used Migo installed on my iPod which let me use other PCs and still have my Outlook settings and email. I have never tried Ceedo but was quite happy using Migo so I would recommend checking out both programs to see which one would work best for you.
