Welcome

(chimes) - [Voiceover] Welcome to setting up your mobile office. I'm Jess Stratton and I'll be taking you through, start to finish, setting up a multidevice environment. I'll start by giving you some pointers as to what devices you'll actually need, and how to research and buy them. I'll show you how to keep your task list under control, as well as take full advantage of Siri. I'll show you how to update your blog on the road, as well as keeping communication with your clients through instant messaging.

I'll even show you how to be a smart traveler. Showing you why it's important to scan all your travel documents. And how to check your next flight status before you even get off the plane. I'll show you how to remotely connect to another computer from your tablet, giving you three different apps to choose from, and I'll explain how to completely secure your device and your data, and then how you can find it, should it get lost. I've got a lot to cover, so let's get started.
