Whenever you talk about a Google device, it’s hard to know where to assign credit: Google, or ASUS, the company actually building the thing in the first place. The second generation Nexus 7 may have cost $30 more than its $199 predecessor, but that cash seems to have all gone to make the hardware even better. When Brad Molen played with it, he said that it had an “incredible display” and “strong... Read more →
In light of the recent Apple iCloud news, I think it's a good time as any for us to re-evaluate how we're keeping our data safe in the cloud. I have a few measures in place including some two-factor methods and completely random passwords. Unfortunately no solution is full-proof but any methods can help.
With nearly every photo coming from iCloud, I'm beginning to second guess my reliance on auto-back up services. I know SpiderOak is supposed to be all... Read more →
