Deal of The Day:Upgrade your Cloud Storage Options
The ‘cloud’ is at the top of techies must use list. We, in the digital media space, already use the ‘cloud’ for many, if not all of our communication and productivity services already. Gmail, Spotify, Flickr and YouTube hold our mail, music, pictures and videos on the internets. Toodledoo, Pocket, Simplenote and Voice manage our to do lists, reading lists, quick note taking and phone/txt business. Of course I can go on for awhile because there are literally tons of services I use to manage affairs in our ever increasingly mobile tech world.
Most of the above services listed use small amounts of data. But data, actual files that need to be saved and transmitted independent of their format, also have found several homes on the webbies for that type of freedom. One of the first I ever tried, liked and stuck with is Dropbox. The service easily and conviniently allows you to save files from your computer, access them on any device and also make them available for others to get to as well. There are several others that do the same or similar, Box, Google Drive, Microsoft Skydrive, and more. But Dropbox is well known, simple to operate and already used by a lot of people.
If you are new to online data storage or already a frequent user, now is a good time to take advantage of this deal being offered by Dropbox to get a lot of extra space for you internet needs.
