Google to offer 100 GB of free cloud storage to new Chromebook and Chromebox buyers?

by: AdrianAugust 1, 2012

Google’s first-generation Chromebooks haven’t quite made it to the mainstream yet, but the search giant has decided not only to follow up on those devices, but also to step up its game a bit.

The makers of the web-centric Chrome OS have upped the ante in terms of tech specs, equipping the new Chromebook with a far snappier processor than the first-generation one, but also with more RAM. Aside from the new Series 5 Chromebook 550, Google has also released a brand new Series 3 Chromebox, similar with Apple’s Mac Minis, but available at a lower price point.

While all those changes have been welcomed warmly by everyone involved in the tech business, the new [...]

Box partners with Qualcomm to preload app on Snapdragon devices, users to get free 50GB storage

by: Bams SadewoJuly 25, 2012

The cloud storage competition on mobile devices is heating up, as Box goes on the offense against other established players in the market. The cloud storage company has struck a deal with Qualcomm, one of biggest SoC makers in the Android ecosystem, as well as with Microsoft for its Windows Phone devices. We figure you’ll be more interested in the former, so here are the deets.

The Qualcomm partnership means that select devices powered by Snapdragon processors will come preloaded with the Box Android app. The main perk for users is that they will get 50GB of free Box storage. The deal doesn’t necessarily mean that the Box service is mandatory, but phone manufacturers [...]

OfficeDrop: Capturing documents, scanning PDF files, and sharing them in the cloud

by: Dan EvansJuly 16, 2012

Before cloud technology and online collaboration were possible, file sharing and collaborating were a nightmare. Sure, you could email files to your group mates or colleagues, but if you didn’t have a streamlined system for organizing your files, you’d soon discover a quickly growing mess of files. You should have seen my thesis computer folder.

The days before Google Docs and Dropbox were indeed dark, hilarious, and cluttered days. Syncing important files across computers is now possible and you don’t even have to bring a USB stick with you when you have a presentation. Technology, however, has been continuously pushing the envelope and today we’ll be taking a look at [...]

Cloudpipes for Dropbox: Scheduling filtered file and folder syncs to or from Dropbox

by: Carl ParkerJuly 13, 2012

Armed with a powerful Dropbox browser, Cloudpipes for Dropbox (beta) is capable of downloading or uploading whole folders at once. You can create pipes that would automatically link a remote Dropbox folder to a folder on your device so that you can choose which Dropbox files or folder go where on your phone storage. More than that, you can schedule the app to automatically upload, download, and transfer certain files whenever you like.

The app runs independently of the official Dropbox app for Android, so all you need to do in order to access your Dropbox content is to allow the app to access your cloud data. By doing so, you can play around the automation [...]

SkyDrive Explorer: Android app for managing your SkyDrive files

by: Carl ParkerJune 13, 2012

It seems that everyone’s doing the cloudy thing. I’m talking about the recent trend in storing data, such as pictures, videos, songs, and what-have-you to cloud services such as Apple’s iCloud and Google’s own Google Drive.

Microsoft, not be left behind, also launched its own cloud service named SkyDrive. This means that people who want to safely stash their files in a place that they can access from any location now has a variety of options to choose from. Cloud users can literally access their files not just from their main computers but also them from their laptops, tablets, and their phones.

If you’ve got a Microsoft SkyDrive [...]

Meet Nivio: a unique competitor for Onlive Desktop

by: Mike AndriciJune 11, 2012

Although OnLive is most often the first company that pops out when I think of cloud games and software, that doesn’t mean that its dominance in the cloud market is bound to last for eons.

While a few weeks back we were reporting that Nvidia’s Kepler architecture will soon be powering up alternatives to OnLive’s cloud gaming solution, today I’m here to talk about nivio, an alternative to the controversial OnLive Desktop service.

Basically, nivio allows you to access your Windows desktop, as well as apps and your personal data from any Android device, iPad, PC, or any other HTML 5-enabled device (yes, it also works on Chromebooks). Thus, you will be able to work on Corel [...]

Dropbox introduces video streaming feature for Android 4.0

by: Ankit BanerjeeJune 11, 2012

A big point of consternation for consumers considering the HTC One X as their next smartphone was the lack of an expandable memory storage option.

While some explained that the 23GB additional free Dropbox cloud storage more than made up for it, the use of microSD expansion is obviously preferred. Another disappointing factor about most cloud storage services currently available is that accessing some files such as videos required you to download the entire video first, which meant you needed the additional storage space anyway.

With the latest update from Dropbox, there is finally some great news on that front, at least if you’re part of the 7% who use [...]

Seven major alternatives to Google Drive

by: SamMay 15, 2012

So, Google has opened up Google Drive to us. While some are welcoming it with open arms, other are taking a stand against what they perceive to be a blatant ripoff of Dropbox and similar services. Other people just don’t like the ‘privacy policy’ in the Google Terms Of Service, which must be agreed upon when you join. Whatever your own thoughts are on the matter, here are the best alternatives to Google Drive as a web storage service.


You knew it would be here. It’s safe to say that with the arrival of Google Drive, Dropbox is feeling threatened to say the least. Here is what the CEO sarcastically tweeted regarding Google’s [...]
