I am a big fan of USB drives as Port-a-PC, and have liked what U3 has done in the space. [ Never mind, they haven’t done anything for Mac population…. or maybe they know we don’t leave home without it (PowerBooks!) ] And now U3 is going to bundle Yahoo! toolbar with U3 smart drives. The toolbar will work with Mozilla Firefox browser for U3. [ I wonder how much it cost Yahoo for this!] However, the really big news is that U3 powered USB drives will have office suites from OpenOffice.org and ThinkFree. Most of these will be available for download, and on new USB drives from Clever-Stuff, PQI, TwinMOS and SanDisk.
