My wife and I returned from the U.S last week and I was able to travel to Oregon, Idaho and California without a computer thanks to the cloud. I could receive my email via the Google Cloud. I could retrieve my photos via the Yahoo Cloud, I could read my books via the Amazon Cloud and finally hear all of my music via the Apple Cloud.
Two years ago I advised new purchasers of computers, tablets and smartphones to buy as much memory as they could afford. Today, with the advent of free cloud services I tell people to buy the minimum memory configuration.
The following are the free storage available to any user.
- iCloud (Apple) 5 gb
- Google Mail And Drive 15 GB
- Youtube – Virtually unlimted videos uploads
- Flickr (Yahoo) a whopping 1 TB (1000 GB ) of photo storage
There are other services like Dropbox, Pogoplub, Box etc that also offer free gigs of storage.
This blog is being stored on the WordPress Cloud.
Bottom line – take advantage of the many free, safe and reliable cloud storage systems to streamline your life.
