OneDrive is here

Microsoft just launched their new OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) today. If you already have an account, you can log into it now and find all your stuff. To celebrate, they gave away 10 petabytes of storage (that’s 1×107 GB!) For those of us who missed out, if you signed up for early notification, you can still claim 20 GB for the next year for free. Find out more about it here.

A Personal Cloud Worth Looking At

If you ever want a personal cloud to access all your files from anywhere, look into the Transporter. It allows you sync your files, images, videos from anywhere with any device. The nice thing about the Transporter is there are no monthly fees. You pay for the device and you’re done. You can start with a basic device for $99 using your own USB hard drive and choose the capacity. Other options are 500 GB Transporter for $199, 1TB Transporter for $249, or a 2TB Transporter for $349. With the last 3 comes a Transporter Library which is a set of folders not synced but can be shared with others. Check it out. At the end of the video on this page, you have a chance to get a free one.
