Pogue on Access (using desktop applications on an ipad)

In today’s NYT David Pogue reviews Access, a service provided by a company called Parallels, that allows users to run an ipad version of everything on their desktop mac or pc, including full versions of programs that don’t exist for the ipad except in truncated form. There are drawbacks, of course, especially for those of us with UT desktops that shut down automatically after a certain period of time (the desktop has to be up and running for the service to work). Still, if you ever wanted to use Word, for example, to edit a document on your ipad, or run excel, etc., this sounds like a winner. Here’s the link to the story so you can judge for yourself if interested: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/29/technology/personaltech/a-better-way-for-the-ipad-to-talk-to-a-home-computer.html?ref=technology&_r=0
