Dazzboard Aims To Solve Usability Issue Of Connecting Phones To PCs


Finnish-based Dazzboard is moving to Sunnyvale, Calif. where it will be closer to Google (NSDQ: GOOG) and work closely on solving one of the bigger problems facing the Android platform: How do you make it easy to transfer content between the phone, the PC and other devices and cloud-based services, like social networks?
