 photo HiveLifestyle_zps550491af.png

While cloud-based data storage has not been available for all that long, at least relatively speaking, you see it all over the place already. In addition to the cloud storage offered by major tech companies, more and more options for saving your data to a cloud are constantly becoming available. Quite often, however, these storage options come with either extremely limited space or a hefty price tag attached. Despite the expense, the service is still very popular because of the convenience it offers and the space it saves on your computer or other tech devices. A new cloud storage platform seeks to capitalize on the service’s popularity and the lack of inexpensive options currently available. This platform, called Hive, claims to be the first free cloud storage service in the world to offer unlimited space to keep your data. Read more »

With all of the different messaging services we use on a daily basis, it can be easy for anyone to get lost in all of the back and forth conversations on different platforms. Especially in a business setting, forgetting who said what and when can cause some real problems. The messages and tasks to keep track of, particularly for businesses, now often include far more than just keeping track of emails or a simple daily planner. People also need to keep track of their web presence across several different social media outlets, which messages they sent over which service, and recall or quickly look up what they said to any given contact to get up to speed before important conversations or meetings. As many have found out, contact relationship management, or CRM for short, can quickly turn into a jumbled mess. Luckily, a service called Nimble allows you to bring all of these things in once convenient package. Read more »

Many of us have experienced certain frustrations that come with shopping for clothing online. Without being able to try something on physically before you buy it, it can often be difficult to get any clothes that fit properly. This is one of the main reasons for someone to go clothes shopping in a brick-and-mortar store rather than online, as people are willing to give up the convenience of online shopping in order to avoid the hit-and-miss results of their purchases. A way to see how clothes would specifically fit you right on a website, rather than the way they fit a paid model, would give more convenience to shoppers and allow increased business for retailers. MeTail does just that, letting users preview how clothing would look on them before buying online. Read more »

Phonio Lets Fans Connect Directly to Celebrities

With all of the social media websites and apps, blogs, and other forms of communication online, staying connected to friends or organizations seems like a constant thing we don’t even think about anymore. These mediums function much the same way for celebrities we follow. All of the online presence gives frequent updates to fans, or serves as an advertising platform for upcoming events.

For most of us, carrying around at least one device that can take pictures at all times is a very normal thing. Cameras are on almost any mobile device, and millions of people use them for quick pictures or videos every day. The problem is that we often find ourselves with too many devices storing our pictures. In this situation, it can be an unnecessary hassle to sort through all of your media looking for just one picture. Frequently you could wind up looking through all of your tech devices in your search, or you may use different forms of cloud storage. The only issue with storing data on a cloud is that it is often either a bit pricey for a decent amount of storage or you only get a limited amount of space for free. Lyve seeks to provide a viable alternative to these existing options for storing pictures. Read more »
