The cloud storage scene just got very interesting. Dropbox has been around forever, Apple has been pushing iCloud, and Microsoft and Google just tossed their offerings into the ring. What does it mean for you? Well it means you have a ton of options.
Dropbox is platform agnostic and already well known, but only offers 2gb of storage for free.
iCloud is a bit different, as Apple has a different idea of what cloud storage should be. Unless you’re tied into the Apple ecosystem it’s not much of a player in this game.
Google Drive features great Google Docs integration and will no doubt be baked into Android moving forward. If you’re a Docs/Android fan this might be a good way to go, plus their free storage amount is 5gb.
SkyDrive comes from the unlikely underdog/powerhouse Microsoft. They offer you 7gb of free storage, along with Office Web integration and WP7/iOS support.
Which service you should go with depends on what features you’re looking for, but you really can’t go wrong. What am I using? Well…all of them, of course.
Need to quickly resize, rotate or edit the color of an image? Use picmonkey! It will take a few seconds to do whatever simple task you’ve got. It also has some cool filters and advanced features, but I see myself mainly using it as a replacement for photoshop when all I need to do is something simple (resize, crop, etc).

I find it fascinating that Mozilla is creating an entirely HTML5 based mobile OS. It’s a fantastic idea and really speaks to the power of HTML5.
These “humor” books must’ve been written by The Big Bang Theory writers
