Memory firm Kingston Technology has licensed Migo Software's PC portability and synchronisation applications to install as standard on its Flash drive products from December.
Migo's software provides a traceless method of working on personal files and email, including Outlook, on borrowed computers thereby eliminating the need to carry a laptop.
Users connect a Migo-enabled Flash device to a PC and, with a few clicks, the PC appears as if it is their own, even including the screen wallpaper.
When they finish, Migo leaves no trace of their personal files behind and synchronises their work with their own PC when reconnected.
"Kingston started by bundling Migo with its Data Traveler II Plus Migo Edition," said Migo Software chief executive Kent Heyman.
"That turned out to be so successful that they're now expanding Migo to other products in the Flash product line. This agreement will bring Migo to millions of new users."
Kingston has paid US$1.85m for the renewable licence and invested US$150,000 in Migo.
