Google Drive

April 24, 2012 in Software

I don’t mean that lame firefox plugin, nah bro this is 2012! I’m talking about THEE Google Drive. Not much to explain on this one, It’s all those files that are too big for emails, too hard to sync or collaborate and even that personal stuff you want to have access to everywhere. Google Drive is your one stop shop for cloud storage! Currently available for Mac, PC and Android devices. Nice to know they are doing something useful with those old Buzz and Wave servers they got kickin around!

Well at least it seems like it. They seem to be in the testing stages still. That oh so memorable and exciting time where they test server loads and everyone waits around hoping and praying to gain access to Googles new fidget toy. Anyone wanna send me an invite? 😉

Don’t believe me? Check it out!

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…
