Cloud Services for Storing and Syncing Data

Cloud Services for Storing Data

If you don’t yet have a service for storing and syncing your data in the cloud, you need one. Which one you choose depends on the kinds of files you store, how much security you need, whether you plan to collaborate with other people, and which devices you use to edit and access your files. It may also depend on your comfort level with computers in general. Some services are extremely user-friendly, while others offer advanced customization for more experienced techies.

These services provide seamless access to all your important data– Word docs, PDFs, spreadsheets, photos, any other digital assets from wherever you are. You no longer need to be sitting at your work PC to see your work files: With cloud syncing you can get to them from your smartphone on the train, from your tablet on your couch, and from the laptop in your hotel room or kitchen. Using a service like those included here means no more having to email files to yourself or plug and unplug USB thumb drives.

This article in PCMag gives a great review and comparison of what you should look for in a cloud based service.

From the article…

“Just to clear up any confusion, the cloud part of cloud-based storage services refers to storing your files somewhere other than your computer’s hard drive, usually on the provider’s servers. As one tech pundit put it: “There is no Cloud. It’s just someone else’s computer.” Having data in the cloud refers to the ability to access those files through the internet. Your data is usually encrypted before making the journey over the internet to the providers’ servers, and, while they live on those servers, they’re also encrypted. The services don’t upload entire files every time they change. They just upload the changes, saving your connection bandwidth.”

Free iPhone Apps


Currently, on the internet many applications that can be used to  make your iPhone more useful. Apps are available for download there are paid and some are free.  Some of these apps are :


Yahoo Messenger. This Apps is widely used by iPhone users who like to chat. It looks like the PC version. It’s very easy to use. You can send files, buzz, and chat with colleagues. You feel has brought the PC in your hand.


Facebook. www.facebook.com is one of many social networking sites that are widely used by many people in the world. With the facebook apps on your iPhone, you can update status anywhere. The interface is different from the browser view, but easier. You can only see the tag notification, messages, conversations, comments, or just view the latest status of your friends. This apps still has the same limitations as other mobile facebook apps. The user still can not access the gaming applications and update personal data info.


  • Gmail App. Now you do not need to open another browser to open a Gmail account. You can read, write or delete messages in your Gmail account with the Gmail App. The disadvantage of this apps is that you can not attach a document or image when sending e-mail. But it’s still profitable, right? When you travel, you can still receive an important email on your iPhone


Opera Web Browser. You can add this “Opera Apps“, in your gadget, although the Safari Web Browser is available. This web browser is faster and lighter to explore various sites although used in a multi-tab mode. Display and usage of this apps on iPhone is not much different from the mobile version of Opera Web browser.


LinkedIn. LinkedIn is one of social networks like Facebook. This apps allows the owner of an account on LinkedIn to interact with friends who already have an account on LinkedIn simply on the iPhone.


Speed test. This apps can be used to measure the performance of the network used without going to the Website Speed Test and change the destination server that will be used as a measure of data transfer speed. Network performance measurement results are automatically stored in the application. Data stored include: date and time of measurement, the transfer speed (upload / download), and details of network infrastructure is used. By knowing the results, users can view a network that has the best performance which used by iPhone.


Conversion Unit. This apps can work on iPhone with or without an internet connection (Wi-Fi or 3G). This application will help users to convert measurement units easily and quickly. The parameters available are force, mass, energy, pressure, speed, time, and volume. To eliminate the ads that appear on the apps, turn off all Internet connections.

Which Wireless Standard Is Right for You?


Bored with the slow Hotspot Access? It’s not an age when hotspot access had slow connections like a snail. Perhaps that’s one of “marketing language” if you want to selling hotspot connections. If that’s your problem there are many ways that we can do to trace the problem. The first way is to check how much bandwidth is allocated for hotspot connections. If the problem is bandwidth allocated was small, it’s done, because the answer is to increase bandwidth capacity through the hotspot devices. But if the internet connection is fast but has plugged to an ancient hotspot device, this may be beneficial. This article will try to review the wireless technology that is used to improve hotspot speed. Its can improve download speed, upload speed, and transfer files between PCs. With Wi-Fi networks sometimes transfer data between a PC / laptop with another PC was much slower compared with the data transfer cable media. Why? Currently Network LAN (Local Area Network) which uses media cable has the lowest speed of 10 Mbps, commonly used has speed of 100 Mbps, the latest technology with Gigabit Ethernet capable of 1Gbps data transfer.

Wireless technologies use the IEEE 802.11 standard. The Standard has been developed and improved version of the first generation to the last generation.


1. 802.11

Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) made the first WLAN standards. They called it 802.11 after the name of the group that was formed to oversee its development. Unfortunately, 802.11 only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps, is too slow for most applications. For these reasons, 802.11 wireless products are no longer produced.

2. 802.11b

IEEE developing “802.11 standard” started at July 1999. They create the IEEE 802.11b specifications. 802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps, compared to traditional Ethernet.

3. 802.11a

Along with the development of 802.11b, the IEEE made a second extension to 802.11 standard called 802.11a. Because 802.11b gained in popularity much faster than 802.11a, some people believe that 802.11a was created after 802.11b. 802.11a supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps and signals in the frequency spectrum is set approximately 5 GHz. This higher frequency compared to 802.11b. Higher frequency also means that 802.11a signals have more difficulty penetrating walls and other obstructions. Because 802.11a and 802.11b use different frequencies, the two technologies are not compatible each other.

4. 802.11g

In 2002 and 2003, WLAN products that can support a newer standard called 802.11g appeared on the market. 802.11g is an attempt to combine the best of both 802.11a and 802.11b standards. 802.11g supports bandwidth to 54 Mbps, and uses a frequency of 2.4 GHz for greater range. 802.11g is compatible with 802.11b, meaning that 802.11g access points will work with wireless 802.11b network adapters and vice versa.

5. 802.11n

The third-generation Wi-Fi is the standard for wireless home networks. 802.11n equipment is compatible with 802.11g and 802.11b equipment, and support for faster wireless connections with greater distance. Transfer Rate up to more than 100 Mbps. Using MIMO technologies (Multiple-Input Multiple-Output). Currently on the market have a lot of tech products with 802.11n standard, or often referred to as “Wireless-N”. Thus, the ability to transfer data is more quickly. One way to increase hotspot speed access is using the AP-tech “Wireless-N”, but the wireless client (laptop) also have been supporting the “Wireless-N”. If it does not yet support, will be the same. Second note: whether the Internet connection is above 100 Mbps? By using the “Wireless-N” can increase download speed
