Google Drive – Do we really need more of these cloud storage services?

Twitter It!

"Google Drive" is one of the latest google services now available in the market, in short, you can now store up to 5GB of your data on google servers entirely free of charge. And If you need more storage capacity it would then cost you up to $2.5/month to secure up to 25GB storage capacity.

This google drive service is available on:

  • Mac, PC
  • Chrome OS
  • Android Services
  • Iphone and Ipad (soon to come)

Here is Google Drive Demo Video:

As google is strengthening its muscle and look to acquire more business from prospective customers worldwide via their latest service release, the question that we are mainly going to focus on, is whether cloud computing is the right choice for the privacy of your data! Considering all the hacking scandals and security breaches that we often read about not least when it comes Gary Mckinnon, or the 15 year teenage accused of hacking 259 firms and going on to social media network networks and to boast about his exploits. There are even political activists group such as Anonymous Group that are just too happy to take down government website just to make a point.

The point being is to say that all those 259 firms, the pentagon and uk government website that have been hacked into for a variety of reasons were fully secured, at least most of them were, but it certainly does not stop the most persistent and skillful hackers from getting in, and if they can hack into those institution that most would think as very secure, what makes you think that leaving your personal information such as family pictures, music, videos, or bank account details for that matter, what makes you think it would be fully secure using this new google drive service?

Its true, as computer users, we all come to use imperfect system that often crash, and we often loose our data if we have not made the appropriate computer backups regardless of the operating system that we use pc or mac, but surely, in this ever increasing digital age, the right thing to do is to use rely less on cloud storage and more on old fashion data backup through your external hard drive , or even use data recovery services to ensure your data always remain safe and far from the reach of internet users.

Having said the above,  I fully acknowledge that in this era, the method of data storage that i am referring to above is well and truly outdated, cloud computing is going to be the choice of the many and not the few, simply because its does bring the convenience that we are all after, and consequences are only thought about after a dramatic experience has come to impact us. To those of you that do take the time to read this article, you may have your own views on this topic, and i would certainly appreciate to have your opinion on this. Do tell us, about your experiences, do tell us whether like I, you are a traditionalist, or you much rather use the cloud computing, because the risks are not outweighed by the benefits!

Mac OSx Features

One of the most important development in the computer industry in the recent years was the arrival of Mac OS X, a major upgrade to the aging of Mac operating system. For years, Apple had tried and failed to provide a completely stable, robust operating system of a sort that would appeal to both newcomers and power users alike. Apple’s previous efforts to deliver a modern operating system were doomed to failure. In the most notable example, Apple spent tens of millions of dollars, thousands and thousands of man hours, and several frustrating years developing an operating system that was designed to offer all the industrial strength features needed to bring Macintosh user experience into the twenty-first century.

In addition, the new Mac operating system offers the same industrial-strength features that are the hallmark of UNIX. These include the following:

  • Protected memory – Each Mac OS X native program you run resides in its own address space, walled off from other programs. If a single program crashes, that application is shut down, along with the memory address space it occupies. You can continue to run your Mac without the need to restart. This feature will help to sharply reduce the Mac OS’s tendency to crash at the least sign of a software conflict.
  • Pre-emptive multitasking – Apple’s previous multitasking method was co-operative, meaning that each application would, in effect; have to share CPU time with other programs. This meant that if you were working in a program, such as typing in a word-processing document, background tasks, such as printing or downloading a file, could come almost to a screeching halt, particularly if a program hogged processor time unnecessarily. With MAC OS X, the operating system serves as the traffic cop, performing the task management
    and allowing programs to run more efficiently and with fewer slowdowns when multiple processes are running.
  • Advanced virtual memory – With previous versions of the Mac operating system, virtual memory meant slower performance, poor performance with multimedia programs, stuttering sounds, and other shortcomings. Under Mac OS X, virtual memory management is dynamic. Programs are automatically given the amount of memory they require, via either RAM or virtual memory disk swapping. Performance is optimized, so you get the maximum - possible performance from your programs.

In the previous versions of the Mac OS, Apple used an imaging model called QuickDraw to generate pixels on your display. For Mac OS X, Apple has given up this technology, moving instead to Adobe’s portable document format. As you probably know, most electronic documents are available in PDF trim, which retains the exact formatting, fonts, pictures, and colours of the original. Full system - wide support is provided for the major font formats – bitmap, PostScript, TrueType, and the new Open type format. As a result, Adobe Type Manager is no longer needed to render fonts crisply on the screen, although font management is not quite as extensive as the deluxe version of ATM. ATM
works normally from Mac OS X’s classic environment, including the font-management features for the deluxe version, but it will not be upgraded to Mac OS X.
