Owners of the sensationally popular Apple iPod can carry their home or work PC in their pocket and access their files anywhere thanks to clever new software released in the UK today.

Migo for iPod lets iPod users access all their personal documents, emails and even their internet favourites on any PC – whether in an internet café, at a friend’s house or even another office.

Users simply download Migo, arrange how much or how little their iPod should carry from their PC and then connect to any other PC via its USB 2.0 cable.

Hey presto! The host PC instantly appears as the user’s own, including their own My Documents folder, Outlook email settings, diary dates, contacts and cookies – even down to the user’s desktop settings and wallpaper.

Unplug the iPod from the guest PC and it immediately reverts to its original state, leaving no trace. When the iPod is docked with the user’s own PC, Migo ensures all new information is synchronised securely.

What’s more, thanks to a special Christmas deal on Migo’s website (, every 100th paid for download of the full version of Migo for iPod is free!

Migo works on the iPod’s private partition to prevent any unauthorised access and does not require any drivers or installation on the host or the guest PC.

“With Migo, we’re offering everyone from business users to backpackers an innovative solution to manage their lives more effectively and change the way they work,” said Jay Elliot, Chairman and CEO of PowerHouse Technologies Group, Inc. a US listed mobility software company [PWHT.PK].

“It’s essential for anyone who can’t live without their computer and the best bit is you can listen to you favourite tunes when you’re done!” he added.

An estimated 100 million Windows users will own iPods worldwide by 2008, with 550,000 Windows users already owning an iPod in the UK, the logic behind using the world’s favourite MP3 player as a versatile data medium was obvious to PowerHouse.

“You can even carry around multiple computing profiles such as Home, Work, or Play. And if you lose your notebook or your hard drive fails, you know you have a backup of your most critical files,” Mr. Elliot noted.

Freelance IT consultant Paul Quinn says Migo for iPod saves him valuable time by porting his Outlook email settings to guest computers at his client sites without having to reconfigure anything.

“It gives me a far more professional image when I can send emails from my Outlook account as if I was sitting in my own office,” he said.

“What’s more, all the data from different jobs at different locations sits in one place on my iPod. And I only bought it to listen to music!”
