You're headed to your buddy's house and you want to play some World of Warcraft or watch a downloaded movie while you're there. You don't have to drag along your entire laptop to do so. Set up your "PC on a stick" with portable software Prayaya V3, a standalone Windows installation that runs directly from a flash drive or iPod.

Plug in your V3-enabled portable drive into your buddy's PC, launch Windows from it, and use any application or document directly from the drive, no footprint left behind on the host PC. Great for anyone who works on several PC's on a regular basis - or who just wants to separate certain apps and documents from a computer they use – Prayaya V3 is a convenient, portable Windows virtual machine.

Uses for Prayaya V3
Your "PC on a stick" lets you do all sorts of things, like:
* Listen to your music library, watch videos and download podcasts from any PC with iTunes installed on your Prayaya V3 (along the lines of Adam's self-sustaining iPod, but using full-on iTunes.)
* Watch downloaded video like movies or TV shows with your media player of choice from any PC on your V3.
* Play PC games like World of Warcraft, Everquest or Half-Life from any PC and take the game and its current state with you.
* Use expensive PC software you have limited licenses for, like Microsoft Office or Photoshop, from any computer.
* Surf with your preferred browser, store your passwords and other sensitive data separate from an untrusted host PC.
* Backup working copies of your essential software so that if your computer crashes or hard drive fails, you can plug your MojoPac into another PC and have a working environment ready to go.

Sound good? Let's get it running.
