Two words: Web Apps.
- Get a Mac. If you're like me, you work on at least two (2). Make sure they're running Tiger.
- Get into Web Apps:
- Optional: Get .Mac. Set the machines to sync every day. You'll retain your keychains, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, and email settings.
- Optional: Get Apple Remote Desktop (and RDC if you must).
- Optional: Get a Treo. Stick VeriChat and Xiino on there. Sync with .Mac.
- Pack the laptop for clutch situations.
I thank Eric, and Apple.
