Notes for Distributed Virtual Personal Computer (DVPC) and PC Magazine review of BeInSync

I see a review of BeInSync on the PC Magazine web site.  It does have some relevance to my concept of a Distributed Virtual Personal Computer (DVPC), but it really is a rather distinct product concept since DVPC is designed so that your entire personal content is maintained "in perpetuity" with your PC hard-drive being only a cache and with all of its history rather than simply "syncing" a set of machines with the current values of shared data.  Still, I do have to note their product and its relevance since people unfamiliar with my DVPC concept can easily confuse the two (e.g., "But isn't DVPC simply syncing of data?").  The PC Magazine product review begins:
When the inaugural version of BeInSync made its debut last September, it proved to be a wonderfully convenient alternative to remote-control apps like Citrix Online's GoToMyPC. It not only provided Web-based remote access, it actually synchronized files, e-mail, contacts, and bookmarks across multiple machines, making sure your important data was always where you needed it—right in front of you.
See the BeInSync web site, which proclaims:
BeInSync™ seamlessly and securely keeps your files and emails in sync between your PCs, making them available where and when you need them. The end to sending yourself emails or using complicated remote access products!
It is not my intention to slight BeInSync in any way, but simply to highlight the distinctions between other products and the DVPC concept.

It seems that beinsync is moer than just a p2p remote access program.
New articles claim that it is a new breed of spyware able to penetrate and remotely restore information.

Just run a quick spyware detection on your computer and see how wrong it is.
