Virtual Office 2.0

Web 2.0, it's a catch phrase we have heard over and over again and we have seen a number of online sites utilizing this new technology. Ajax coded websites are popping up all over the place, and we are seeing the traditional desktop applications go web based. Will these sites ever replace your traditional office, not sure, but they provide a nice resource for anyone on the go, and for people who telecommute. We no longer have to worry which computer our favorite bookmarks are on, if we have office installed on our laptop or not, nor do we need the latest version of Photoshop for quick simple image editing on the fly.

I have used several of these service and they work fairly well, although I do still find myself going back to more powerful desktop based apps, these sites definitely have their place and will only get better with time.
