– Flash-based Webtop for Cyber Nomads

Jooce.comLuxembourg based jooce is another entry into the online desktop marketplace. With its bubbly, big font and bright colors, jooce does the whole 2.

0 thing like a pro. Using Flash, Jooce makes any computer your own computer. What you get is access to all your normal goods—photos, music, chat, IM, storage, widgets and videos—along with the ability to share them with your friends, privately and securely. Jooce bundles all your IM and email accounts into one platform, so you only have to check jooce to find out what’s new in your inbox. One of jooce’s more interesting features is its split between private and public desktops. Users can organize their private affairs and their to-be-shared items by easily dragging between the two divides. Jooce is available in a variety of languages and it’s now open to the public.
