Princess Leia shared "Death Star Plans" with you

I've also thought that 99% of the plot driving problems from Seinfeld would be eliminated if they had mobile phones.

Amazon Cloud Drive

Unlimited storage for 1 year for $10 using Amazon's Cloud Drive. I've not used the Amazon cloud. Does anyone have any experience with it? OneDrive/Office365 and Dropbox are $70 and $80 respectively for 1 year and 1 TB. (With Office 365, you do get to use Office during that same time frame, so not exactly apples to apples.)

Dropbox Personal and Business

I had this in my queue before I just posted about the OneDrive unlimited space. I will note that I am already running my personal OneDrive account side by side with my OneDrive for Business.

iCloud Backup

My iPhone and iPad frequently complain that my iCloud account is full and that they cannot complete a backup. I always ignored it as I don't have anything on my devices that isn't backed up some other way. I saw this HowToGeek article via LifeHacker. It made me realize there is no reason to send my pictures/videos to iCloud when Dropbox is capturing them anyway. Duh. Problem solved.

I know there are pros and cons to various storage options, but the Microsoft Office 365 subscription is really attractive. You can get 1 TB of OneDrive space plus Office for $6.99/month. I may have to buy a laptop to support my consulting work and would like to get the new version of Office. Instead of shelling out for the full version all at once, I can pay $7/month or $70 for the year. (If you want to install Office on up to five devices, you can $9.99/month or $99.99/year.)

I can't wait to see how Google, Dropbox, etc. respond!

So Microsoft is releasing a free version of OneNote. I'm still on my search for the perfect organizational tool. Lately, I've been using ToDoist for tasks and have dabbled with Evernote. I've still not settled on storage (Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive) either.

Anyone a OneNote fan?

SkyDrive is now OneDrive

So Microsoft lost a fight over the name and their cloud file service is now OneDrive. I'm still using Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive in addition to OneDrive. I'm too cheap to pay for a service and I don't have a favorite at the moment, so I'll just keep using all them to meet my collective needs.

50 GB of Box Cloud Storage Free

So I've used Dropbox, SkyDrive, and Google Drive. I'm adding Box to the list since they are offering 50 GB of free storage. I don't put anything sensitive out in the cloud, but 50 GB handles several years worth of pictures.

DropBox and World Domination

Brain: The same thing we do every night, Pinky... try to take over the world!

Cloud Storage

Lifehacker has a good comparison of the various cloud storage options. Also via Lifehacker, Otixo provides a tool for unified management of all your cloud storage. I'm still developing my own strategy for where I put my files. Since I have 25 GB with SkyDrive, it is in the lead, but I use lots of Google services. Clients might be the tipping point since I would like to have Windows, Android, and iOS.

Cloud Storage

Between Dropbox (3 GB), Microsoft's SkyDrive (25 GB), and Google Drive (5 GB), I've got more cloud storage than I can use at the moment. Whatever you use, be sure to encrypt any sensitive files before you upload them - or don't upload them at all.

BTW - if you've been using SkyDrive, make sure to claim your 25 GB before it drops to 7 GB.
