File Storage

Another day, another file sharing app, or so it seems. We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to services for sending files big and small over the web, and while it may seem like overkill, the truth is that today’s users are diverse in their usage habits and requirements, and a one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work in this context. So who is Shared good for?

Shared doesn’t bother with apps for multiple platforms or syncing files across devices: instead, it offers a cheap, easy-to-use web-based file sharing solution that works on desktops and mobile devices and is perfect for novice users and advanced file sharers who are tired of bloated apps with features they don’t use. Plus, you can get started with 100GB of space for free! Sound too good to be true? Let’s send some files across the interwebs and see if Shared is indeed all it’s cracked up to be.


It’s one thing to write, code, paint or create. It’s another thing to pay the bills. I guess thats why many people abandon projects in favour of a steady, nine to five job.

That might all seem a bit dramatic, and maybe it is, but beneath the main economy of white collar workers flows an undercurrent of online enterprise desperate to find its feet. Individuals and groups, creating and sharing.

Sellbox, by way of its simplistic features caters to this underworld yet keeps the style and professionalism of the main market. By enabling users to sell their Dropbox files, they’ve created an ingenious marketplace with no start-up overheads for the creators. But how is it really any different from other online file markets? And, in business terms, is it worth your while? (more…)

The cloud storage market is really heating up right now. Previously we relied on these services to have all our files up-to-date on our home and office computers. Now, smartphones and tablets have drastically increased the need for ways to store and sync files between all our devices. And it’s not just for work anymore – all our music, videos and photos travel with us wherever we go, by the awesome power of the cloud. So where are you keeping your data?

CX might be a choice worth looking into. The service has been around for a while, known previously as Cloud Experience. Having undergone a drastic rebranding and redesign, it now pegs itself as a great place for casual and professional users to store their data in the cloud with a host of features for sharing and collaboration and apps for several desktop/mobile platforms. The redesign and the new offer of lots of free space seemed enticing, so I decided to try it out.
