It’s always helpful to be able to travel light, especially on a business trip. One of the easiest ways to make this happen is to travel with a portable USB drive rather than a laptop. Today’s USB drives are tiny, and yet hold tons of data and lots of applications so that you can sit down at any computer and it’s just like working from your own computer.
With today’s sophisticated applications, you can do the work you need to do at someone else’s computer, and access and save all of your own information needed to do that work, without leaving behind any trace that you were there.
Following is a list of portable applications that are great for the USB drive. These 15 applications are sure to make it much easier for any engineer to leave home without lugging a laptop case.
