Cloud storage solutions like Dropbox and Google Drive are fantastic, but they don’t solve all the file-sharing needs you would have online. For starters, they require you to have an account to use them, and there’s no anonymity in sharing the file itself.

In the course of using the internet, you will often need different file-sharing solutions for different tasks. There is no one-size-fits-all service that gets everything done. So here are the best services for file-sharing, depending on what you need to do.

Creating a structured database of content revolving around a particular topic solves only one half of the problem. Presenting it in a way that is clear, concise and attention grabbing is equally critical. Otherwise, all the hard work that went into research will become meaningless — or unnoticed, at best.

One shouldn’t spend the same amount of time presenting the content as they did with their research. There needs to be a better way other than using a good old web page. That’s where Silk comes in, as a place to help you turn your data into presentations. A Silk site lets you add structure to your information and gives you many ways to filter and visualize your content in quite an impressive way.

One of the most important things to get the attention of the employer is your CV/resume. This is because when you apply for a job anywhere in the world, the first thing that the employer sees is your resume and based on that, they decide whether to call you for an interview or not. It should include everything about you, your strengths, education and work experience, awards and certifications you have and your skills.

It’s not just the skills and your education that catches attention. In order to attract the interest of your employer, you have to make sure that your resume is unique, simple and professionally designed. If you are looking for a simple yet easy way to design a professionally looking resume/CV, we have gathered a list of some handy online tools. Take a look. (more…)

File transfer services have come a long way in the past couple of years, with new business models, features and pricing structures that make sending files online a delight. It’s a far cry from the old world of clunky FTP and shady file upload sites. But not all of these apps are created equal. They’ve each got different features, limitations, and focuses, and finding the right one for your workflow can be tricky.

That’s why we thought it’d be a good idea to compare them and see which ones come out on top. To evaluate these services, we’re going to look at their ease of use, file size, storage, and bandwidth limits, and pricing. This is less of a comparison and more of a roundup of some popular and useful apps, so check out the details of each to decide which one suits your needs best. There’s a wide variety of apps here, ranging from no-registration-required file transfer apps to feature-packed cloud storage solutions, and hopefully you’ll find something that fits the bill for you.

When Google threw its hat into the cloud storage ring a few weeks ago with Google Drive, it added another good service to a quickly growing niche. With Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Skydrive, Amazon Could Drive, and more, it’s tough to choose which is the best. Dropbox is the long-time favorite, and many of us already use it. Then, the tech heavyweights – Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon – have all jumped in as well.

File sync isn’t anything new in 2012, but it’s increasingly needed as we’re using more devices and sharing files with others more often than ever.

Today, there’s never a lack of new things to see and read online. In fact, the biggest problem is keeping up with the stuff you really want to remember. It’s so easy to read an article or discover a new webapp you like, only to forget it and never find it again. Fonts and icon packs seem to be the easiest for me to forget; I’ll find ones I love, and then somehow never be able to find them again later.

There’s no reason you have to lose stuff you find online, though. Even in our fast paced society with new tweets and notifications coming in all the time, you can still keep up with the stuff you like online. With little effort, you’ll have a curated set of all your favorite things you’ve found online. We’ve scoured the net for 24 of the best webapps that can help you keep up with things you find online no matter where you are. Chances are you already use some of them, but keep reading to find some new ones that might be the perfect solution for you.

We are living in the Information Age and today one of the most important things to most of us is our data. If our computers, tablets, phones, or other devices disappeared, or the webapps we depend on shut down tomorrow, the files we lose would be harder to replace than the things themselves. From pictures to music to the new web app you’ve been creating, we’re keeping more data than ever and all of it is stuff you want to access anytime, anywhere, without ever losing it.

The good news is there are many apps today to help keep your data synced and safe. Dropbox is one of the most popular file sync apps ever, but SpiderOak is another promising offering that helps ensure your data is safe and secure as well.

We’re going to take a deeper look at what both of these services offer and then hopefully you can decide if Dropbox, SpiderOak, or another service is the one you need to keep your data synced and safe.
