With mobile devices becoming more and more powerful with each new generation and iteration, one thing has also grown exponentially – the need for more storage space. One of the best solutions for storage space needs is cloud storage. Dropbox is arguably the most popular cloud storage service in the market right now and it will become more prominent with a new deal it has struck with Samsung.
Dropbox has announced that two of Samsung’s newest products – the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera – will both be able to sync their data with a free Dropbox account. This free account will have a whopping 50GB of free storage. The account will be completely free for a total of two years. After this period, the users will be asked to pay a monthly fee to continue having that amount of storage. More →

Unfortunately, it did not get a lot of excited reception from the people who saw it, mainly because some of the specifications were a little suspect. First, it only has a relatively vanilla 1.4Ghz dual core processor and a 1280 x 800 pixel display resolution. These were specs that was unimpressive, to say the least and it became immediately unattractive when Apple release the New Ipad and its far superior hardware. More →
In the smartphone sphere, the two players that have a lion’s share of the market are Apple and Samsung. These two companies have been the dominant players in the global market and their respective sales numbers show that their competition is fierce with no true leader.
But a recent survey released by Reuters has revealed that Samsung may have finally widened its lead over Apple by a significant margin. The study was the result of a poll made involving 41 financial analysts. The analysts have observed that the tremendous interest the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been generating is the factor that has put Samsung over Apple in sales. From the period covering April 1 to June 30, Samsung has managed to sell over 50 million smartphones worldwide, which definitely dwarfs Apple’s own sales figure of 30.5 million smartphones. More →
