It’s not inconceivable that many of us may have at most (or at least) four devices we use to connect to the web to conduct business and/or leisure. We could have a desktop computer in our study at the house, a notebook/laptop computer that goes with us wherever we can take it, a smartphone or PDA to fill in when we can’t take our notebook/laptop, and a work computer on our desk at the job.
Because we have all these devices, it’s very possible that we find ourselves uber frustrated when we realize that something we desperately need is on our work computer, but we’re at home or out of town and can’t get to that particular computer or to the work VPN (virtual private network). We need that file, image, video, whatever is it, to do that thing we need to do.
