Return of 'Home on iPod'?
Appleinsider claims that the 'Home on iPod' will return in an upcoming incarnation of Mac OS X 10.3.
Most of the information about the Home on iPod feature comes from Apple itself, when it left the description up on one of the Panther information pages.
- Home away from home
Ever thought you could carry your home in the palm of your hands or in your pocket? You can. Panther's Home on iPod feature lets you store your home directory files, folders, apps on your iPod (or any FireWire hard drive) and take it with you wherever you go. When you find yourself near a Panther-equipped Mac, just plug in the iPod, log in, and youre home, no matter where you happen to be. And when you return to your home computer, you can synchronize any changes youve made to your files by using File Sync, which automatically updates offline changes to your home directory.
The feature is not available under Panther as described, and this description was quickly removed from Apple's site after Panther's release. A cached copy of Apple's page is still available here.
