I recently started working in a new company, and I was asked to give a presentation about myself so that the rest of the team could know me better.
At first I didn’t know what to do, what to say, then I remembered about Prezi and ideas started to flow more, just because the tool would allow me to express myself differently.
Prezi is an amazing presentations application that can work online or offline (if you have the right plan) and would allow you to create astonishing good looking things. Forget about Powerpoint and how boring slide by slide could it be, with Prezi you get to present ideas and concepts with natural movement and flow.
Update Feb. 6th 2016: Copy has announced that will discontinue their service on May 1st 2016. You can read the post here.
Continuing with my “crusade” to find the perfect online storage platform, its now the turn of Copy.com, a freshly launched service by Barracuda Networks a well known network and anti-spam security player in the market.
The first thing that catches your attention to try Copy.com is their incredible referral system. Because they are new on this segment, they want to be sure everybody tries Copy.com, and to do so they had the brilliant idea of giving away a 15 GB free account, and if you register through a referral link (like mine here) you can get 20 GB of free space. But the good part doesn’t stops here, for each person you recommend and registers to their platform through your own referral link, validates their email address and installs the client software, Copy.com will credit you 5 GB of additional space. For the moment, they are not limiting how much
space you can get for free, so take advantage now if you need online storage, I already have
250 GB 535 GB:) (Update: I already passed 3 4 TB of free storage!!!) (more…)
I recently found out about Copy.com. Its like a new Dropbox, but tries to be better, I am still testing it and once I do all my testing I will write a review here.
But for now, there are two things that I found very interesting:
1) Because they are starting and they want to get themselves known, they are giving away a lot of free space. For example if you go to Copy.com you get 15 GB of Free Space online. If you go through the link on this post you get 20 GB. So this means that their referral system its really great, they give 5 GB for each person you recommend. (Dropbox only gives 500 MB per referral) and even they limit it to 18 GB. I already have
115 GB 535 GB of free storage on Copy.com because all the people I referred. You can refer as much people as you want (no limit) 🙂
What is BitCasa?
Its an application that enables an online virtual drive on your computer that works the same way an external hard drive connected to your computer would but with steroids. It adds all the benefits of having all the information you put on this drive securely backed up online and available to access it from any device you have (PC, MAC, Tablet, Smartphone) no matter in which part of the world you are. You can choose to move, copy or mirror folders you have on your computer to the BitCasa drive and if you choose to move them, those files wont take space on your computer.

How much storage space BitCasa offers?
When I heard for the first time Tony Gauda´s statement “We are killing the hard drive” it immediately got my attention. (more…)
From month to month I check several cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive. I test them and check about any new functionality their developers might add. But still, there is not one service on the market that really rules.
Companies like the two mentioned on the previous paragraph might be more well known than others but still they are missing several features and flexibility.
The following is a list of must have´s for a cloud storage service to really lead the market:
1 – Not everything in one folder:
I have several hard drives con my computers and work on a certain way with them. I don’t want to change the way I work to be able to use a service. Dropbox works very well but having to put everything into one folder really makes me sick.
