I recently bought 100GB from "Dropbox." The ease of accessing files is fantastic. I feel safe, since the data is not only stored in the cloud, but also synced across several computers. There is around 7 instances of the data right now.
Only down side, if any of those terminals make changes, it happens everywhere. That would include deletion.
As for security, I encrypted the entire archive with a 64 character string. That should be good enough, yes?
I had to post in order to mention the announcement of Microsoft's cloud computing with the release of Office 365. If it catches on maybe Netflix will no longer be the biggest contributer to Internet traffic.
Have to handle data storage, I feel, is something a lot of people don't want to deal with themselves. Some people I know like how their iPhone just stores all their data somewhere else. They don't know why or how it works, but just happens. I think that mentality will trickle into every facet of life. Even though Linux is arguably an excellent OS, people still go with the ease of Windows and OSX. The same will go for digital storage. Then cloud based graphics processing, see the Nvidia Grid. Then OS and everything else.
We will all just have terminals, I suspect. Easier way to control IP too.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
