I work across multiple computers (my office laptop, home laptop, client desktop) on a daily basis.
I used to transfer data across these by e-mailing them before I travelled. (I often forgot to do so.) Mostly, these are notes — like telephone numbers, things to buy, places to visit, etc.
Google Notebook solves the problem. But not entirely. I store a lot of my notes on spreadsheets, as lists. For example:
- Gadgets to buy (and accompanying research)
- Movies I’ve seen
- Books to read (and which library they’re available from)
- To do lists
That’s what I use Google Spreadsheets for — to share lists with myself, across computers.
