As it stands now, the only way to do that would be to e-mail the files to myself and then upload them. Can it be done? Absolutely, but it's inconvenient as hell.

Nothing fancy. Just give me a USB port.
Move to the cloud. I've started using google docs for a lot of my stuff for that very reason. I doubt that you can put gears on an iPad (if you can put gears on an android phone and run docs offline, that would be badass), though.

I eventually download to microsoft word once I get ready to publish (for formatting and editing, I find it superior), but I love to do my generative writing on google docs.
