Google Drive, the Dropbox clone, now ups the ante to 15GB of Free Storage during Google I/O

Remember Google Drive? If you have a Gmail account (I do!) you’d notice every time you login there’s an option at the top of your page to select Google Drive. Now they’ve decided during Google I/O that started on Wednesday May 15th 2013, their pow-wow of all that’s great about Google to upps the ante on Dropbox and increased the Free Storage from 5GB to 15GB. Google Drive is Google’s clone of Dropbox that launched on Tuesday April 24th 2012 as reported by Kelroy in Google Drive launches – Another major player joins the Cloud Storage Wars.  Now why they are doing this (you can take your jaw and tongue off the ground please, it’s not becoming of you dear reader!) remains a bit of a mystery. Maybe they have extra storage space after they’d killed off a bunch of old services and decided to g...

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...

So how can a Cloud-Based smartbook, as Google so affably calls their little protégé, be simmering in my crystal, ma cherie!? Because Digicel, the reputed “Bigger Better Network” (sorry, no ads!!) is banking on...

XBOX 360 to Support USB Storage in April

Good news Xbox 360 users, as of April 6, you will be able to use flash drives to store data such as game saves, title updates, Xbox Live arcade games, demos, profiles and even install games directly to the flash media. Yup, you read that correctly, instead of installing the game to the hard drive you will be able to put it on the flash drive. Of course, just like installing the game regularly, the disk will need to be in the tray to authenticate it. Geez what's new. This new feature will be available through a soon to be released software update from Microsoft. The new update will allow users to create a partition of up to 16GB with the capability of connecting 2 drives simultaneously for up to 32GB of storage. The update also comes with additional memory management functions that will ...
