Microsoft Live Mesh - Device Sharing On Steroids & How to get an Invite

Live Mesh is a new SAAS (Software as a Service) platform from Microsoft that allows you to effectively have a shared drive on the web. This is similar to Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) or the GMail Drive Shell Extension. But it is much more than just a file share for the web that can be shared between different machines and different users... you can also connect to your PCs in the mesh via remote desktop - and you can connect different types of devices to it. The official site is www.mesh.com.

To be involved in the tech preview, you can register via MS Connect (http://connect.microsoft.com/) OR you can just go to this site to find some one who can give you an invite to this new service - http://www.sharemesh.com/. For a brief rundown on what this tech preview of Live Mesh provides, see this review: http://www.networkworld.com/community/node/27230
