Joggle pulls data out of thin 'AIR'

Based on Adobe's AIR platform, it centralizes videos, pictures, and documents for browsing without regard to where the information is being kept.

Data is a problem--a good problem. As in, we have so much information we don't have enough room for it on one device.


Web storage company Fabrik acknowledges this and says it will give people a way to instantly access their data from one application without regard to where the information is being kept.

Fabrik's product is called Joggleand is based on the AIR platform from Adobe, which launched last year.

Any music, video, and photos stored can be viewed all in the same window no matter what Web site or storage device it is on. With photos, for instance, the images uploaded to a variety of locations--Flickr, Picasa, Webshots, iPhoto, and anything stored on an external device like a USB drive--are listed under sortable tabs in the window.

There's a desktop client for both Mac and Windows environments. And of course, Joggle wouldn't be fully Web 2.0 without a media widget to display, videos, pictures, and more on external Web sites.
