Microsoft gone Freemium: How to edit Office files in Dropbox on your smartphone or Tablet

Have Microsoft Office 360 on your smartphone or Tablet as described in my article Microsoft to introduce Office to Apple iPad on Thursday March 27th 2014??? Especially now that the Microsoft Office 360 since Thursday October 6th 2014 has gone the way of the freemium model and has split into three (3) separate Apps for Apple iPhone users i.e. Word, Excel and PowerPoint, with upgrades to better features costing only US$6.99 per month? But you’re unable to edit them ‘cause you never though to get Microsoft OneDrive Cloud storage to store all those documents? If you’re a Dropbox fan and you use if for everything from storing School notes, streaming music to even hosting your Reflection, as in the case of my aptly-titled Reflection with themed “Lindsworth Deer’s MICO Wars The Teacher F...

“We know this is a big deal. This decision was made with great care. We have worked hard on our product and feel that our vision aligns perfectly with Dropbox's vision for Carousel.

Google Keep – New Cloud based Note-taking App

Cloud based services have been a hit in recent years. Leaders such as Dropbox and Evernote have pioneered the ability to save, edit, store, collaborate and share information over a wide variety of platforms and devices. As a University student and techy such services are vital to my day to day tasks as I am able to start a project on my desktop, add to the same project while on the go via my cellphone and then share that same project on my laptop with my classmates or lecturer without ever worrying about saving, transferring or corruption of data. In steps Google and their new service called Google Keep a new cloud based note-taking app in the same vein as Evernote: Every day we all see, hear or think of things we need to remember. Usually we grab a pad of sticky-notes, scribble a ...

The Music Industry and the Cloud – Streaming Radio Nirvana

In a previous article entitled Console Gaming’s Downfall – Future is up in the Clouds I made it known for some time prior: Console Gaming is dying thanks to Piracy. This is the same scourge that is currently affecting Digital Video and Music Industry as my article Digital Video and Music Piracy – A Land grab for Taxes on the Internet chronicles. E-Book Piracy is also on the cusp of becoming a real nuisance as my article Piracy and E-Books in a Tale of Two Cities notes. Certainly, regulation of the Digital Video and Music Industry would be a considerable source of taxable revenue for the US Government. It is certainly something the Jamaican Government should pursue as well. As for these various Industries, a push towards the Cloud to protect their intellectual content is inevitable. Alr...

Why Amazon Cloud Drive, the DropBox Clone, is Legal

Fellow Geezam.com writer and Editor Kelroy in his article Amazon Cloud Drive Launches seems to have gone gaga (as in overzealous, not the singer people!) over Amazon basically, as we Jamaicans would say, “pataclaw” of Apple and Google, both of whom it had been speculated to be keeping plans close to their chest as it relates to launch such a similar Cloud streaming service. Especially as Apple had purchased Lala in August 2009 only to later shut it down with nary a hint of an iTunes-esque revival. Lala the Sage to stream iTunes libraries, the popular thought of the day, was, as they say, a thought in the clouds. Guess Apple thought people would use their pricey MobileMe Cloud Storage to share and play on their iOS enabled devices would have sufficed. Too bad they did not realize tha...
