Just like the rumors speculated, the Fire Phone features a 4.7-inch display with an HD resolution. Amazon added dual Dolby stereo speakers to the Fire Phone for surround sound while watching videos on the device. Even though the Fire Phone’s display may not be Full HD or Quad HD, Amazon wants you to watch as much Prime content as possible with the phone. Amazon clearly hopes that the free trial will inspire Fire Phone users to join Prime if they haven’t already. Firefly is a great new feature that helps you find the products and objects you encounter in the real world, online.
If it’s not a product you’re looking for, but rather information on a painting, tourist site, or something else, Firefly will hook you up with a Wikipedia page on the subject. The Fire Phone has a dedicated button for Firefly, so you’ll be able to find and use the feature easily.
Prior to the launch of the Fire Phone, everyone was talking about the brand-new 3D effects that would revolutionize how you will use Amazon’s smartphone. Amazon is calling its 3D effects “Dynamic Perspective.” In essence, the new feature merely allows users to interact with images, Web pages, and other content like maps, in a different way.
With a simple tilt of the Fire Phone, you can change the point of view you have of each image, map, or 3D-enabled app you are looking at on the device.
Bezos also spent a lot of time detailing how it created the 3D effect and accurate head-tracking software. In order to accurately track users’ head motions, Amazon added four front-facing cameras, placed at a 120-degree angle on each corner of the device. Amazon finished up its explanation of the new feature with a call to developers to convert their Android apps into better ones that work on the Fire Phone. The 32GB version of the Fire Phone will cost $200 with a two-year contract, or $27 per month if you choose a Next plan. If you’re an active internet user, it’s more likely that you’re using a cloud storage service (or an online backup service). I have already compared the best cloud storage services back in 2012 but things changed a lot ever since. I really love OneDrive apps (yes, it’s my preferred cloud storage service) and its interface. In other words, if you have installed OneDrive desktop on your PC then you can use fetch files feature to access all your files on that PC from another computer even if it’s not there in your OneDrive folder.
You can easily get bonus storage by connecting your Facebook account (+125 MB), Twitter account (+125 MB), following Dropbox on Twitter (+125 GB), giving feedback about Dropbox (+ 125 MB), and also by connecting your Mailbox for iOS app to Dropbox (+ 1 GB). Unlike other services the storage space offered by Google Drive is shared between Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. Since I don’t personally use any of the following cloud services I’m highlighting only their basic features.
As you probably know, iCloud Drive is the latest addition to cloud storage service providers (but it’s not exactly a Dropbox alternative).
Mega, mostly for its security, ease of use, its cheap(enough) prices and the amount of free storage you get.
Though I included Box and Mega here I’m personally using only OneDrive and Dropbox (sometimes Google Drive too as I like Google Docs).
I’ve tried Dropbox, Box and Google Drive thoroughly by syncing over 150,000 dev files to each and definitively Google Drive is the worst of the bunch. Box is ok, although the sync times, from Brazil at least, and the processing times for many files were very slow compared to Dropbox and Drive. Having said that, of these three, Dropbox is easily the best performing, and for me I personally find their interface the simplest and easiest to use.
Can someone explain how the sync function (your local HD folder and cloud folder) interact with all these providers. Yes, it’s absolutely possible if your cloud storage service has 500 GB+ storage space.
When I went into just a little further research and checked the individual products sites, there it was~~ The security safeguards each uses! In hubiC You can also choose a duration of publication by link – DropBox doesn’t have it in a free account.
OVH was created in 1999 and achieved the number 1 position as web hosting provider in France and Europe in just a few years. Thanks so much for this very user friendly comparison of what is becoming very a standard utility. Moral of the story is, if you restore your system from a backup, delete the entire dropbox cache folder and unlink the machine, and then link it as a new machine so it does a proper sync. OneDrive, I haven’t played around much with their revisions, but like Google Drive, they store revisions. I do not like to keep so many files on my cloud storage services (especially duplicate files).
For OneDrive, you may want to include the link for Office365 users to request for unlimited space.
Well thanks, but that’s a referral link which benefits you for every person who uses your code. Adorned with a box in gold color, the sophisticated TVS-863+, featuring the easy-to-use QTS operating system, is a powerful, reliable, secure and scalable NAS solution designed for mission-critical and intensive business applications and to meet fast growing data storage needs. Thanks to the intuitive user interface of QTS, system operations of the TVS-863+ are smooth and handy. Quickly and easily find documents, photos, videos, and music with Qsirch, QNAP’s new built-in NAS search application lets you find what you need by real-time, natural search. The TVS-863+ offers 2 inbuilt Gigabit Ethernet ports & 1 pre-installed 10GbE PCI-E NIC (single port), supporting 10 Gigabit high speed network. QNAP’s exclusive QvPC Technology consolidates a number of high-end technologies including VM integration, multimedia transcoding, HDMI output, cloud integration and NAS connection technologies, allowing users to operate the TVS-863+ as a PC when they plug in a keyboard, mouse and monitor.
Powered by a hardware-accelerated transcoding engine, the TVS-863+ delivers superior real-time Full HD (1080p) video transcoding to convert videos in common formats to universal formats that can be smoothly played on PCs, mobile devices and Smart TVs. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says the Fire Phone is optimized for one handed use, even though it has a larger display.

As an incentive, Amazon includes a 12-month membership to its Prime service with the purchase of a Fire Phone. To help new Fire Phone owners make the most of Prime’s video content, it added a feature called Second Screen.
Amazon says that the camera shutter will stay open longer to ensure that even low-light shots look stunning (while this would be fine for static shots, we aren’t sure how this would affect action scenes). The ultimate show-rooming tool, the feature uses the one of the cameras on the front of the Fire Phone to recognize books, DVDs, phone numbers, QR codes, CDs, games, and all other kinds of media.
Amazon says that it can recognize more than 100 million items, including 240,000 movies and TV shows, 160 live TV channels, and 70 million different products. Bezos finally showed off the 3D effects during the June 18 event and it doesn’t appear to be hokey or silly, like we feared it would be. For example, when you’re looking through a rack of dresses online, you can move through to the next one by tilting your phone to the right or left.
Infrared sensors and a great algorithm were also needed to make Dynamic Perspective work perfectly.
For example, if you’re late to a meeting, the calendar app will alert you and you can send a quick message telling everyone to start without you. Buyers will also get 12 months of Amazon Prime for free when they buy the phone; current Prime subscribers will also get 12 months for free if they buy the Fire Phone.
Second, it’s integrated to Google Docs so you can create a doc and share with your friends instantly (and can even collaborate with each other in real-time). So if your Gmail is using over 10 GB space then you’ve got less than 5 GB free storage in Google Drive. Can’t comment about security as I think almost all of these cloud storage services were compromised before. However, Box’s sync was dependable, although I noticed some peculiarities when adding files via the web interface, over 2 days the files never synced to my machine. My primary cloud storage is OneDrive and I also use Dropbox to archive files that I don’t need frequently.
I have about 500GB of personal data (photos and documents) I want to store on the ‘cloud’ and use it as and when I want to use it.
So, if it’s OneDrive then you can change syncing preferences and sync only the folders that you have selected. Its the only one with absolutely no filesize limit and has 35GB more free than the second place (15GB). The hubiC service is subject to French law, which is particularly strict regarding personal data protection and respect for privacy. These might be commin installation files or excel, pivot tables sheet and many other commonly used file formats. I was tempted to get Amazon Cloud Drive until I realized that there is no web interface (no way to access your files over a web browser).
I’ve had situations (sadly, multiple times), where I had to rebuild a system with a backup. Google Drive, if you upload a file with the same name, it’ll create it alongside the original. Revisions don’t count against your quota, but revisions only persist for 30 days, then they disappear.
If you upload a filename of the same name, it provides back a callback to either create it with a different name or overwrite. It was, and remains, the only cloud storage provider that supplies an official Linux client.
I accumulated 85k files in my Dropbox, and with an index that big, I have come to notice there are a lot of issues with the way Dropbox creates it’s drive index. If we try to upload a file twice then OneDrive will ask us whether we want to keep both files. I started learning and doing and experimenting web 2.0 stuff back in 2004 and eventually became a full-time computer nerd after graduation.
The TVS-863+ supports 10GbE via optional PCI-E network expansion and delivers high performance with persistent throughput, providing a comprehensive storage solution for SMBs to build a reliable private cloud. Its intelligent desktop allows you to find desired functions quickly, create desktop shortcuts or group shortcuts, monitor important system information on a real-time basis, and open multiple application windows to run multiple tasks concurrently, bringing greater operating efficiency. With the easy-to-use interface, you can centrally manage all of the VMs created on the TVS-863+ with minimal effort.
The splendid user interface and support for crystal-clear 7.1-surround sound passthrough* brings smooth playback of Full HD videos**, providing you with the perfect home theater experience. Turn your mobile devices into remote controls by installing the Qremote app, or use theQNAP RM-IR002 remote control and MCE remote controls via the built-in IR receiver of the TVS-863+. The TVS-863+ allows you to enjoy instant videos on multiple devices - even those that lack computing power or have limited file format support - without the need for complicated and time-consuming file conversion. Data, logs and ISO images of CDs and DVDs can be centrally stored on the TVS-863+ and protected by an integrated antivirus solution. Even though we’ve already heard about most of the specs, the device, once revealed, is still impressive, particularly the MayDay, Firefly, and Dynamic Perspective 3D features.
With Second Screen enabled, you can then use the Fire Phone to learn more about the content you are watching by pulling up info via IMDB (Amazon calls it X-Ray, which also works when playing music or reading books). When you hit the Mayday button, a helpful tech expert will appear to solve all your problems. Once Firefly figures out what you’re looking for, it searches for that product in its database and finds a version that you can buy on Amazon. In the maps app, he took a look at the Empire State building from several different angles. Amazon created a brand-new Shopping app, which lets you view products from every angle imaginable. One of the coolest Dynamic Perspective features lets you access app menus more easily, too. Another feature lets you set your ringer to silent for a set amount of time, in instances when you really don’t want to take any calls.
Since OneDrive is integrated to Microsoft Office Online (and now with Windows 8 as well), you can view your documents (Word, Excel, PDF, etc.) online without downloading them to your PC.

Dropbox offers a clean interface and unlike OneDrive it’s super easy to share files and you can view all your shared files in one-click. If the storage is not enough then the only option is to buy one of their paid plan since there is no referral program.
So nothing is that secure but still go for one that supports 2-step authentication (like OneDrive, Dropbox, etc.). Might have been because I was uploading a tone of files from my machine, although I found that strange.
Because, if we have a local folder then the cloud storage service keeps a copy of all files in our computer as well (and it obviously takes hard drive space). The advantage is that it won’t use our harddrive space and the disadvantage is that we will have to manually download the files that are noy synced with the local computer everytime we need it.
Not everyone is a techie and it really helps when people like you make things more accessible ???? If you explicitly submit the document as a revision of another, it will do what Dropbox does, and rewrite the original and save the previous as a revision. I didn’t notice it on fast hardware before (when doing the initial sync, or reindexing), but it will go off and consume a lot of cpu processing power for the indexing. If we want to keep both then they will simply rename the new file and keep the old one as it is. Files larger than 5TB can be uploaded, but only be accessed through Google Drive API (therefore, really, the practical limit is 5TB). Minterest is a digital marketing and technology journal that I founded in 2007 to feed my super curiosity (oh yeah, I’m a solo-blogger). Qsirch even remembers your search history so you can quickly navigate to files you’ve previously searched for. Coupled with its large storage capacity potential, the TVS-863+ is perfect for data centers to store big data and excel in fast data transmission, and for 10GbE home lab environment for technical professionals. Photographers can view sharper and clearer high-resolution images, and you can get a larger workspace with one monitor when managing virtual machines. You can also download VMs on demand from online VM markets and import them to the TVS-863+ without any complex procedures.
The TVS-863+ features dual HDMI outputs, allowing you to connect to two monitors to play the same content with concurrent 1080p HDMI displays. The Windows AD and LDAP services enable system administrators to configure user permissions by using an existing Windows AD server, LDAP server or built-in LDAP service. Amazon will also offer unlimited photo storage, so users can take as many pictures as they want without worrying about storage constraints. To view the menu on any app, all you have to do is tilt the phone to the left and it will pop up. For instance, it can save the disk space on your PC if you store your photos and videos online. Dropbox is secure too as it supports two-step verification and you can even lock your Dropbox mobile app using a passcode. The best thing is… upload all your files to the cloud, and then sync specific folders with the computer.
I assumed since Google Drive, OneDrive, Mega, essentially every competitor (perhaps except for Apple), they all provide a web interface to access your files. Now it’s like my primary storage service as I moved my files from OneDrive to Dropbox. There is no limit to how many revisions are created or how long they are stored, but any revisions count against your quota, if applicable. Became noticeable when I tried to index my Dropbox drive on a Thinkpad X131 that has a slow AMD processor. Qsirch is a huge productivity boost – it greatly reduces the amount of time spent looking for files on the NAS so you can focus on other tasks. You can even watch YouTube videos, surf the web and manage the Turbo NAS using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox with multilingual keyboard input. The TVS-863+ supports SAMBA v4 and can act as a Windows domain controller to manage privilege settings..
Also, it can be used as a backup service so that your files are all safe in the cloud even if your computer hard drive crashes. But Dropbox overwrites the file and keeps the new version and at the same time makes it possible to revert back to its previous version.
The next-gen AMD Radeon™ HD graphics provides hardware-accelerated transcoding performance and dual HDMI outputs with brilliant high-definition multimedia content playback. The HD Station supports multi-tasking and user authentication so only authorized users can access data stored on the TVS-863+ via HDMI monitors.
For example, when you’re in the messaging app and you want to send a picture, tilting your Fire Phone right will give you access to all your photos, so you can pick which one you want to send. And yeah, today cloud storage service has become increasingly popular because of their cross-platform support. Outside of that, I'm equally passionate about the financial markets and I also spend a lot of time doing random things (see random facts about me). When installed with the latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac USB network adapter, the TVS-863+ can offer remarkably high speeds for transferring large amount of files and streaming bandwidth-consuming multimedia. It means that you can upload your documents from your PC to the cloud and can instantly access it via your mobile. It seems to be doing a lot of writing when generating the hashes for files stored locally to determine if the file is the same as the one in Dropbox cloud servers.
I have noticed that if we upload a file whose file name matches with one that is already there in our dropbox then it just replaces it. Having written some cloud apps before, I know that for indexing, other than writing your updates on the index from memory to disk, you shouldn’t need to be writing to a disk repeatedly to do a MD5 checksum.
But today I learned that dropbox keeps both versions and we cna switch between them by using Version History.
