Business / Tech

The big news yesterday in the cloud storage world was all about Amazon and Dropbox.  They weren’t the only cloud services making some noise though.  Keep reading for a few quick updates from The Cloud.

A few days ago Microsoft announced it would be offering unlimited cloud storage to its current customers (Office 365 subscribers) so that is big. Recently, though, Engadget reports a rumor that OneDrive might be supporting music storage and playback. The rumor came from Windows Central, and says that all of us, not just Office 365, subscribers, might be getting an extra 20 gigs to store our tunes on for free.  Of course, you will be able to reach that music from a whole slew of devices.

SpiderOak is a cloud service that has focused on privacy from it’s conception. This service is actually one of the more feature filled, probably because it’s not a lumbering corporation, but a smaller company that can make things happen quickly and easily. If you’re not familiar with it, go check it out here. SpiderOak just announced a killer 50% off deal on 200GB of storage, which will now cost you $99 for 1 year. Not a bad deal for highly encrypted data storage.

Evernote:

Evernote is a note-taking classic that that syncs amongst your devices, and has been the go to for many for a long time. Their premium service has been $5 per month since their launch, but they have said that it is time for a price bump. Phil Libin, the CEO of Evernote, says they are just trying to find the right price and it may vary from country to country. They just don’t feel that $5 is right anymore. Hopefully they’ll be making some big improvements with that extra revenue.

Do you use any/all of these services?  Might you start in lieu of some of this news?  Let us know in the comments, or on Google+, Facebook, or Twitter.
