Entire office and backup utilities on a USB stick. Damned impressive!

I've been using the portable apps plus various other ones on an 8gig stick for a couple of years now. Ever since when I was a permie and I was let go from a job and told to leave that minute.

Having my browser and all my files on a stick is great, not that fast but very convenient.

Also for the love of all thats techy, encrypt your personal data! I found someones memory stick once, it included his tax, vat and share details, every address he has lived at since he was born. Work data and a couple of albums from high school musical. Just imagine what I could have done with all that.

I'd be mortified if anyone found my copy of high school musical.

Yep - it's great! And you can use the firefox browser when you wifi using the company's laptop and not leave a footprint of dodgy sites visited...

(did I just say that out loud?)
