Cloud Storage of Every Kind

Right now you have a lot of choices for Cloud storage, the first player to the game being DropBox and they have integrated seemlessly into so many services and a lot of people use it naturally. Right now there are several cloud storage services out there: Microsoft SkyDrive, Apple iCloud, Google Drive, Box, & DropBox.

I for one shifted my iTunes and current Apple services to the iCloud, it just helped me access my iTunes from my other machines mainly and get my music on the cloud. SkyDrive interfaces with Microsoft very well but thats about it for me, doesn’t really fit my needs since I barely use Microsoft Office. Google Drive is very Google Docs oriented, a bit on the stiff side for me, stills its new and I haven’t had a chance to try it out completely. I haven’t really tried Box which is another independent service. DropBox has all my needs covered for now with an excellent updated online interface, works perfectly with Android & iOS, and does exactly what I need between my machines. Below is a comparison chart between the different services, the comparison done by Gizmodo, and the only major difference is that DropBox is a bit too expensive and I think they should bring down their prices but it is their core service in this case. You can also check out a more detailed analysis at the link below from Gizmodo, for now I’m sticking to DropBox.

Lego Imperial Shuttle

A Gigantic Lego Imperial Shuttle, over 2000 bricks and its huge, 71 centimeters tall and 55 centimeters wide. I would love to get my hands on the Lambda-Class Imperial Shuttle from Lego coming out in September, I have had this hunger to put lego together for a while, and I have my Ducati 999 and now I think I will make this purchase as soon as its released. I think that Star Wars is cool and Lego is cool, and the combination of them is just irresistible.

Dell Adamo Review

I have been looking forward to a real review of the Dell Adamo, and Gizmodo is the only one that really took a bite at it. Overall I was very dissapointed by the reviews, the graphics of the machine is lacking because they opted to go with the Intel GPU instead of the iNvidia GPU. I didn’t mind that it was slightly heavier but the battery life was very low for a laptop of its class, only going to about 2:40 hr:mins instead of the rated 5+ hours.

Take a look at the Gizmodo link for detailed comparisons with other laptops in its class such as the Lenovo Thinkpag X301 and Apple Mac Book Air. For an expensive laptop it just doesn’t deliver, and I had high hopes for it, especially since the name of it is close to General Adama from Battlestar Galactica

Pros:

  • Unique, stylish design
  • Very thin
  • Nice selection of ports and extras

Cons:

  • It’s the heaviest system in its class by a pound
  • Mediocre battery life
  • Weak GPU
