I think it's called parallels. Let's you run a virtual windows box. Don't know if it hooks in the USB port to manage devices.

What Android have you got. You have a decent chance at being able to manage Android without having to do a wired sync. I always have.

Well to start with how on earth do i transfer some Microsoft word documents from the mac on to my Android
I'll look to see if there is a driver for the Mac to see the DHD when I get in the house.

Dropbox though, is a perfect tool for this need.

Even from my PC, I prefer to do things wirelessly.

You can also set up an SMB (I think that's the term, a windows file share on your Mac) share folder and apps like ES File Explorer can hook in and move files back and fourth.

Option 1:
The simple way, use Dropbox.

Option 2:
A samba share on the Mac isn't actually a difficult thing. Can someone here please
provide detailed instructions.
