    If you work on both PC and Mac, there are multiple file transfer solutions. I tend to default to Dropbox. However, working on two machines on different platforms poses other challenges, not the least of which is peripheral sharing.
    A friend just raved about the JUC400 USB switch, and the reviews are killer.
    If you work on a Mac & PC--or, in my case, a Mac, a windows laptop w/VPN, and a PC with limited desktop real estate--this cable has the potential to solve a LOT of problems and/or make life easier. Again, there are other switch solutions, but I thought some of you might be in my boat, and maybe it'd help streamline your studio workflow.
    $25 at amazon right now.

    Disclaimers abound:
    Don't know if this is the proper forum for this.
    Don't work for J5.
    Don't actually own this item yet. But I'll follow up with my experience soon!.

    The promised update: The Wormhole works great, but has a few glitches.
    1. No drag & drop between machines, but it WILL copy/paste from one machine to another. I'm an old-school keyboard-shortcuts guy, so it took me a bit to figure out that the copy (or cut) and paste only works if you use the mouse right-click menu--NOT if you use keyboard shortcuts.
    2. It occasionally gets wonky with the keyboard--once in a while the letters don't work like they should (like, the occasional lower-case "R" for some reason; just stops working). This happens maybe once a week in heavy usage. For this and a couple other reasons, I find I have to unplug and replug the jump drive connectors. They auto-run like dropping a CD into your computer, and reload the software.
    That's the bad. The good is that, otherwise, it is a LIFESAVER. I use it with my Windows7 laptop, my Vista PC, and my macbook, and it's a dream come true. I'm going to buy another one to have as a backup. Great gadget.
