Glide Out With New Version of Universal Platform

Techstination feature for Thursday, June 26, 2008

A universal computing platform that works. Bloomberg Boot Camp, a report on today's technology. Transmedia is out with Glide 3.0….an operating system complete with a suite of applications….that lets you work on and share files and documents ….across a variety of platforms. Glide Mobile works on Windows Mobile, Blackberry, Palm, and others. Transmedia CEO Donald Leka….

"The best way to describe Glide is it's one compatible file and information management system and one compatible set of applications for all of your devices. You can extend that compatibility to everyone you communicate, share and work with. Glide works on Windows. It works on Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, Android, Blackberry, iPhone, Palm, Symbian and Windows Mobile. Glide contains over 20 productivity and collaboration applications with both offline and online access. So it really is a complete desktop environment."

Edit a document with Glide running on your PC at work and it will automatically be synchronized with your Mac back home….and with your smart phone. Glide automatically recognizes the device you are using and formats your file or document to fit…

"For example it will take a Windows Mobile file and make it available on an Apple iPhone. And vice versa. It will take an Apple Quicktime file and make it available on a Windows Mobile device. Compatibility is a very significant part of this."

Glide's new application for synchronization, called One, allows you to access your files from anywhere and to collaborate with others. Five gigabytes of storage is free. 4.95 a month buys an additional 15 gigabytes. Bloomberg Boot Camp, I'm Fred Fishkin.
