'My Documents' Hits the Web

SMS Text

My Documents is something we all use. Whether you have a PC or a MAC, you are probably using some sort of documents folder. The major problem with storing your documents on one computer, is that you can’t access them from another computer?
Today, [TechCrunch](http://www.techcrunch.com/2008/09/04/docstoc-brings-my-documents-replacement-to-the-web/) broke the news on a new feature from [Docstoc](http://www.docstoc.com) called [MyDocs](http://www.docstoc.com/mydocs/) that allows you to store, edit, search, and even skin your files online:

MyDocs is essentially a dashboard for users’ documents, not unlike an online version of Windows’ My Documents folder. Users can skim through their files as thumbnails, search by keyword, sort each document into online folders, and modify each doc’s privacy settings. Most impressive is MyDoc’s Preview feature, which allows users to rapidly skim through full versions of their documents using Docstoc’s Flash-based Document viewer. In Preview mode, Docstoc displays a list of thumbnails down a sidebar and presents the document itself as part of the main window, allowing users to quickly browse through their documents. In practice this worked surprisingly well – documents opened within a few seconds (oftentimes faster than they would on the desktop), making MyDocs a viable alternative to the traditional My Documents Folder.
