Dropbox – A great tool for syncing your data

If you’re anything like me, you’ll have pictures, music, data files (and goodness knows what else) saved on quite a few devices.   Wouldn’t it be nice to bring all those file into one place??

Whatever devices you use, whether it be your Laptop, Desktop, iPhone, iPod, iPad and even your PC at work, wherever your files are saved, you can use Dropbox to bring them all into one place. 

It works with Windows, Mac and Linux too.  It’s also very easy to use – so lets take a closer look!

What is Dropbox?

Dropbox is basically software that syncs all your files online and across your devices.

If you store files from your Laptop into your Dropbox, they’ll be instantly available on any of your other devices that you’ve installed Dropbox on.  Dropbox works with Windows, Mac, and Linux!  And, because a copy of your files are stored on Dropbox’s secure servers, you can also access them from any of your devices simply by logging into to your account using the Dropbox website.

Dropbox offers an initial 2Gb of space, absoulutely free.  However, if you have more then 2Gb of data strewn across your many devices (which I’m guessing most people do!) then Dropbox do offer a paid subscription service, which offers users more space.   

You can get either 50Gb of space for $9.99 a month, or up to 100Gb of space for $19.99 a month, which is great for syncing your music collection, photos or movies.

I’ve been using Dropbox for a few days now and will continue to do so as it’s a very good application.  It’s easy to use and best of all, it’s free.

iPhone 4 is coming – are you getting one??

So, today at WWDC10, Steve Jobs talked about the iPhone 4 and how Apple has focused a lot of its efforts on video calling.

iPhone 4 will be able to make “Face Time” video calls to other iPhone 4 users through two cameras mounted on either side of the handset – sounds clever enough!

However, there is a catch!  The feature will only be available over a Wi-Fi internet connection (this year at least), whilst the company tries to form some sort of arrangement with wireless carriers to make it work well enough over 3G.

Jobs also said that the iPhone 4 is 24% thinner than its predecessor (The 3GS) and will have a much sharper display, coupled with longer battery life.  The updated device will also house a gyroscope which, when combined with its accelerometer, will give it six-axis motion sensing, much like a video game controller.

It will also have a better camera (5MP) and will be able to shoot video in HD – nice! 

iPhone 4 will also correct one of the iPhone’s main criticisms… its ability to multitask.  It will be able to run multiple apps at the same time, so users will no longer have to close one application down, just so they can open another.

Release Dates

The new handset will be available in five countries (not including Canada) as of June 24, and will ship across to 18 more in July.  It won’t be available in Canada until late July – although this may change!

So, will you be the first to get an iPhone 4?  Or will you wait?
