In the beginning the Word was probably written in stone or on scrolls or both until Gutenberg came along with moveable type and produced the Bible as the first printed book in 1455. Now the Bible is more portable than ever thanks to a coded version that can be loaded on to a USB flash drive. Download it for free and put it on your own USB drive or make a donation to the people who programmed the more than 20,000 lines of code and they will send you a preloaded USB drive with the Bible. Among the best features of the digital version of the Bible is the ability to quickly search for verses or topics of interest. Whether on a USB drive or on CD or other drives, you can also customize the display text among other things such as cross referencing and highlighting. Whether you’re interested in the preloaded USB Bible or downloading it onto your personalized USB drive, go to www.theword.net for more details.

LibreOffice practically means “free” office. With the release of LibreOffice Portable, brings you the freedom of an office in a portable app. Put it on the storage medium of your choice, be it a USB flash drive, some other solid state drive or something else. LibreOffice has a word processor, a spreadsheet, drawing package, database and presentation tool. Plans are in place for this portable app to be the default office suite in upcoming versions of Linux. However, it doesn’t matter what format your files are in, LibreOffice can import and export documents from other formats such as Microsoft Word. While the reviews are generally positive, experts are upset that the spreadsheet doesn’t include all Excel functions. In our case, we’re always looking to bring you the expanding possibilities with portable apps because portability translates to more freedom with your USB drives.
U3 is a platform that allows users to take their USB applications to any Windows PC where they can be launched from a USB flash drive. But it should be a U3 Smart Drive. U2 is a band which is definitely not a flash-in-the-pan, though they could conceivably release their music on a flash drive. And their members are probably smart musicians.
U3 is a proprietary format owned by SanDisk which collects royalties whenever it’s implemented in USB flash drives. U2 records material which is proprietary and they collect royalties whenever it’s “implemented” on radio stations or advertisements.
U3 applications are required to clean up data from the guest PC after an application has been launched from a USB drive. U2 tries to clean up the world by working on issues such as poverty, disease, social justice and narcissism. Well not narcissism but the other ones for sure.
U3 compatible USB drives can be configured with security, requiring passwords before loading data. U2 has Bono whose real name is Paul Hewson, who has been known to travel around with a security detail that keeps paparazzi and riff raff at arms length. Though it isn’t always clear who fits the definition of either.
When it comes to portable apps, U3 could be described as the genie in the flash drive. There seems to be no genie behind U2’s musical success except for the name, Bono which comes from the Latin phrase for “Good Voice.” But being Irish there might be leprechauns somewhere in the mix.
