Eyefi Cloud Syncs Photos From Your Camera to the Internet in a Flash

Basically every new camera that comes out these days has Wi-Fi on-board, but the technology hasn't progressed to the point that it's seamless. There's still a little friction when you're trying to get photos from your camera to another device—and that's still one step removed from the internet. Wi-Fi enabled SD card maker Eyefi is hoping to help fix that problem with Eyefi Cloud, available in the UK at some point soon. Read More >>

MediaFire is Slashing its Cloud Storage Prices

MediaFire is going after Google Drive by offering some dirt cheap pricing for its recently overhauled cloud storage. If you sign up now, you can get 1TB for $2.50 (£1.40) per month—or $25 (£14.90) per year. Under the new plans, the regular £3 1TB price point is still half what Google Drive costs. Definitely hard to argue with that price tag. Read More >>

Microsoft's SkyDrive is a terrific little cloud service that doesn't get as much attention as it deserves. Unless, of course, it's being sued by British Sky Broadcasting Group over its name. But now SkyDrive will be called OneDrive, for just as long as is legally allowable. Read More >>

The New SkyDrive Might Be the Best Cloud Storage Yet

SkyDrive in Windows 8.1 has a secret weapon no one's talked very much about. It's actually pretty amazing in that small sort of way that doesn't change much, but still manages to completely alter how you use something. In fact, it might just make SkyDrive the best cloud service around. Read More >>

Dropbox Just Changed Everything About How You Use Apps

Way back when, Steve Jobs told Dropbox that it was a feature, not a product. Which was enough at the time. Except now, Dropbox's reach stretches wide enough, and its influence is great enough, that it just levelled up. It's not just syncing your files and folders anymore. It's trying to sync literally everything on your phone, tablet, and computer. Game saves, settings, contacts, notes — all of it, and on any phone or tablet you have. Read More >>

The Pentagon's Putting Its Big Brother Data Collection in the Cloud

News emerged this week that the U.S. Army, which has been collecting biometric data of locals in places like Iraq and Afghanistan, is going to start storing that data in the cloud. Put simply, biometrics is the collection of personal, physical data using devices like retina scanners, and no matter what way you spin the situation, it's a potentially pretty creepy practice. (Do you want the government to take pictures of the inside of your eyeball?) But in a warzone, it seems downright dangerous. Doubly so in the cloud. Read More >>

Google Books Has Just Become a Book-Pirate's Dream

Part of the Google I/O onslaught yesterday was an update to Google Play Books for both Android and iOS. In and of itself it's not exactly ground-breaking, but Google'll now let you read books uploaded to your Google Drive (through Google Books), which means cloud-syncing for your own, erm, acquired books.
