Not happy with Google Drive or DropBox?  Now, you have another option, Mega.  Its launched by Kim Dotcom, A year after file-storage site MegaUpload was brought down by U.S. law enforcement officials targeting piracy, it didn't stop Kim Dotcom from launch his new storage website, Mega.

 

Dotcom said Mega had more than half a million sign-ups in the first 14 hours, so it was already a success. However, the site has sometimes been knocked offline.

 

Mega's file encryption is not so much to protect users as to protect Kim Dotcom and his company. The New Zealand police force's ludicrous overreaction resulted from accusations that MegaUpload was being used to share copyright material such as movies, TV shows and music. With Mega, files are encrypted before they are uploaded, so that Mega staff do not and cannot know what users are uploading and, possibly, sharing.


Compared to Google Drive, Mega offers a steal! There is no 500 GB plan offered by Google, but we can compare Mega to Mountain View's 2 TB plan. Google Drive's price for 2 TB of storage is a whopping $99.99/month, 5 times the price of Mega's Pro II plan. And we thought Google's plans were affordable.

 

Mega's Pro Account Prices

 

  • Pro I: 500 GB of storage and 1 TB of bandwidth for $9.99/month.
  • Pro II: 2 TB of storage and 4 TB of bandwidth for $19.99/month.
  • Pro III: 4 TB of storage and 8 TB of bandwidth for $29.99/month.

Smash It! Is a 3D Physics Puzzler set in the world of the popular Toy Story films.


Smash It! lets players blast bricks, bounce balls and generally entertain themselves with Andy's familiar cohort of toys. There are four episodes to work through, each with 60 levels and their own location.


It's the physics aspect of the game that is most interesting here. Rather than the game-mechanics estimating what you need to do to complete each challenge it simply applies the laws of physics.


This is quite similar to the Wii's Boom Blox game although here you are controlling things with touch rather than gestures. While this doesn't match the real world movements like the Wii, the touch screen controls are actually much more accessible to younger players.


 

  • ★ Block-breaking puzzle play
  • ★ Play as Buzz Lightyear
  • ★ 4 imaginative episodes
  • ★ 60 challenging levels
  • ★ Hours of replay value

Android Version 3.0 LinkedIn has added various update stream features which were not present in the previous versions. LinkedIn is a social networking site that mostly brings together professionals. Like most other social networking sites, its users have been on the increases but it has not yet reached the level of Twitter and Facebook. Linked In users can now share, like, follow, invite and even comment directly from feed on the update stream content. The new design also makes navigation of the app much easier.


Some users can remember how they buried the settings menu that featured in the earlier apps. Even if you cannot say that this app is going to get you to use this app, its installation in your phone will make the gadget more appealing. Who does not like owning a phone that has many features anyway? However, for those who are addicted to LinkedIn, this is definitely an app that they would want to see installed in their phone.

Google Glass has received its sofware update code-name XE7, features including a boost of web browsing abilities, touch sensitivity, and oodles of sharing, in my opinion most exciting in very basic way - is the ability to browse the web.


While last month and the XE6 update improved the camera, added HDR, and slightly touched on voice controls. Today's update is much bigger while also addressing a few key limitations the wearable initially had. That being easy calling and messaging, web browsing, and full Google contact list support. We already received it today. Excellent stuff Google!


With XE4 and 5 improving battery life, XE6 fixing the camera, and now XE7 working on web browsing and voice commands it's obvious that Google is hard at work with Glass. 



Here's the full change log.
