How to get 100GB of cloud storage right now for free

Cloud this… cloud that… everything is cloud these days. While there is no question that “cloud” has become a painfully annoying buzzword, there is also no question that the rise of cloud storage services and cloud computing have been absolute game-changers. There are obvious (and quite serious) security concerns anytime any of your data is stored on remote servers belonging to a third party, but there are also huge benefits that are nearly impossible to give up once you’ve embraced the cloud.

If you have yet to take the plunge — or even if you have and you want more storage space — a great new offer will get you 100GB of cloud storage for a full year, and it’s absolutely free. More →

12 great Amazon features you might not know about (but will wish you had)

When it comes to online shopping, Amazon is king. The company hasn’t quite mastered the delicate art of consistent profit growth, but when it comes to undercutting the competition and selling an impossibly wide range of goods at competitive prices, there is none better than Amazon. Of course, Amazon is constantly breaking into new areas and it now provides plenty of services outside of simply shipping goods to your door in two days.

And no, we’re not just talking about Prime Video streaming — Amazon’s reach extends well beyond that now. More →

It’s surprisingly easy to find out your secret Uber passenger rating – here’s how

As anyone who has used Uber before knows, the service’s Android and iPhone apps give customers the opportunity to rate their driver at the end of each ride.

This is the best new Google Search feature we’ve seen in a long time

This is the best new Google Search feature we’ve seen in a long time

The Internet is a hypochondriac’s worst nightmare — or best friend, depending on how you look at it. In the age of the web, our first instinct is to search Google for answers to any and all questions. When we’re not feeling well, that extends to searching for clues as to what our symptoms might mean. And here, of course, is where a problem arises: Google’s search results are flooded with sites that do nothing but game search engines, and the information on those sites is often completely useless. So when you search for answers as to what ailment might be responsible for your toe ache, you might come across a website that tells you it’s bronchitis or hyperhidrosis.

Now, Google may finally have an answer to this problem. More →

Get 60 days of Spotify Premium for free, but only if you hurry

Spotify is a fantastic service, easily among the best streaming music offerings in the world. It has really become an all-in-one service compared to rivals, allowing users to stream any song in its catalog on demand, or to listen to custom radio stations based on a genre, song or artist. Not everyone has tried the service though, since there are plenty of other options out there that are almost as good in some ways, and even better in others.

If you’re among the people who have never given Spotify a shot though, now is the time to finally try the service out. More →

Netflix Vs Popcorn Time

Meet the movie pirating service that Netflix is afraid of

Meet the movie pirating service that Netflix is afraid of

Movie pirating used to be something that happened quietly behind closed doors. Unscrupulous Internet users would swarm to peer-to-peer file-sharing services and download bootleg copies of films, trying to hide their tracks as best they could. Now, the Internet is a very different place. People flock to Reddit and other online forums to openly discuss movie theft, and the most popular means of downloading stolen movies are widely publicized services like The Pirate Bay and Popcorn Time.

And when it comes to the latter, it turns out Popcorn Time isn’t just a tiny little piracy tool. The industry has taken notice and now Netflix, the biggest streaming movie and TV show service in the world, has directly named Popcorn Time as a threat. More →

Amazon’s Prime Now service delivers your order in one hour

Remember that string of companies like Kozmo.com that popped up in the late 1990s and offered same-day delivery service on thousands of items? The cost of running those operations quickly put them all out of business, but thin margins are Amazon’s specialty and the company just launched a service that puts those old companies to shame.

It’s called Prime Now, and it offers delivery of your order within one hour. More →

Google Maps game: Smarty Pins tests geography and trivia

This awesome game breathes new life into Google Maps

This awesome game breathes new life into Google Maps

Google launched a mapping game called Smarty Pins this week that has no apparent function except to be a fun way to educate yourself about geography. Basically, the app will ask you a geography-related trivia question and you have to place a pin on the location that you think represents the answer. For example, if you’re asked to find the region of Mexico whose name is synonymous with a famous hot sauce, then you might place the pin on Tabasco, Mexico and see if you are correct.

If you are correct, you don’t lose any of the 1,000 points you start out with. If you are wrong, you lose points based on the number of miles you are from the correct location. More →
