Here’s Why Google Photos Should Be Your Default Photo App

I am in love with Google’s new Photos app. It has been less than a day but I’ve already decided it is now my default photo/video organization app. Yesterday at Google I/O, the brand new Photos app was one of the big announcements the company made. With the announcement Google also one-upped pretty much every other photo service out there with unlimited photo and video storage for free.*

That asterisk is there because it’s only unlimited for photos up to 16MP and videos up to 1080p. But really, at the moment, [...]

PSA: You Should Always Backup Your Data Multiple Ways

From business-critical information to valuable digital music downloads and photos, we now save all kinds of data. Unfortunately, people often fail to put much thought into backing up this information until disaster strikes and it’s too late. This can cause them to lose data with both sentimental and economic value, and in certain cases, it can even contribute to the failure of entire companies.

A range of risks

There are a whole range of dangers lurking in the background that can destroy data at any time. Physical [...]

Streamnation Nails Media Storage, Hooks Into Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox and More

The last we wrote about Streamnation the company had just launched its digital locker product to the world.  At the time Streamnation allowed you to upload your media to the company’s servers and then stream that media from any device, regardless of platform. That includes mobile devices, and even the ability to do so offline. While that wasn’t too huge a deal on its own, Streamnation also lets you invite your friends in as well.  If your buddies sign up for accounts, you can give them “lending” access, essentially letting you [...]

Yahoo Mail Revamp Offers a Ridiculous 1 TB of Storage

Happy 16th birthday, Yahoo Mail. You know, it feels like just yesterday that Yahoo Mail made its way online. A couple of years later, Google came along with Gmail and its fancy 1 gigabyte of storage, and Yahoo Mail fell behind. It’s now 2013, and the 15 gigabytes that Google offers today for Gmail (as well as Drive and Google+) has just been blown out of the water by Yahoo’s latest announcement: all Yahoo Mail users will get 1 terabyte of storage for their messages and attachments, an amount that can’t be described as [...]

Plug Is Like An Automatic Dropbox With No Storage Limits

Plug is a new and unique kind of file-sharing product.  No, it’s not like the cloud or even Dropbox, in fact, Plug is a device that sits in your home, connected to a router one one side, and to a USB drive on the other.  The device, which launches on KickStarter today, wants to reinvent the way our devices share and store data.

Plug, which has been in the works for over two years and is the brainchild of US/French startup Cloud Guys, is a connected storage device that’s a little bigger than a thumb drive. But unlike a [...]

nCrypted Cloud makes cloud storage more secure

When it comes to cloud storage, there are a host of options and not many of them offer enterprise-level security. Worse yet, all of these services aren’t interoperable — try sharing a Google Drive folder into Dropbox, for instance. Fortunately, one company saw fit to kill two birds with one stone, building an application that makes the sharing and syncing of files and folders secure and gets multiple cloud storage services work together in harmony. That application is nCrypted Cloud.

Our own [...]

Google simplifies storage, shares 15 GB across Gmail, Drive, Photos

Previously, Google products had different storage limits for its various products, such as Gmail, Drive and Photos. The company apparently decided this was inefficient — from this point forward, all of the space provided for those products will be pooled into a shared 15 GB block. That block will still be free.

The move, according to Google in a blog post, is necessary now that the involved products have started to become more integrated. For instance, you can attach photos or Drive files inside Gmail. Keeping tabs on [...]

Share instantly from Google Drive folders on Mac and PC

Google announced yesterday on its Google Drive Google+ page (yes, that’s a lot of Google in one sentence) that it’ll be rolling out a new “Share” feature in Drive over the next few days.

Here’s the gist of how the feature works. If you’re in the local Google Drive folder on your Mac or PC, you can right-click a file or folder and then hover over the “Google Drive” sub-menu. From there, click “Share” and I presume that you are given a screen that allows you to edit [...]

Google Drive adds profile pictures, one-click chat to shared files

Google has added profile pictures and one-click chat to Google Drive today — features that can be used inside a document or file you’re storing on the service. The new features were announced in a blog post on the Google Drive blog.

A look at the box you see when you hover over a profile picture inside Google Drive.

When viewing a document or file that is shared between many users, you’ll be able to see the profile pictures of those other users at the top of the page. The feature [...]
