No More LogMeIn Free

January 22, 2014 in Software

lmiThere are probably more remote access options out there than most people care to think about but one of the biggest and well known is switching their business model and no longer allowing free accounts. Existing users will either need to upgrade to a pro account or switch to a competitor. Hamachi, Cubby and Join.Me are apparently unaffected at this time but will it be long before these free services will stop too? I personally thought Hamachi would be the first to go.

Let us know in the comments how this change is affecting your business or personal life. If you switched to a competitor, what solution are you now using? If you use other free LogMeIn services, will you now be worried?

Hard Drive Prices

February 10, 2012 in Hardware

After 4 months of waiting we are still only starting to see hard drive prices come back down to normal. Prior to the flood in Thailand, a 1TB internal hard drive could be bought for around 80 bucks and now we still see prices nearly doubled as 1TB and 2TB drives sit between $150.00 – $200.00 on average; nearly doubled the price in many cases.

When prices first went up I started to think that SSDs might be the way to go. It didn’t feel worth it to pay so much for a hard drive when you could get faster ones for less. The issue is the size, and now that prices have come down a little I’m on the fence on the issue. I think until SSDs get larger, or HDDs get cheaper there will be no clear winner in this way.

I personally didn’t think it would last nearly this long…
