Google Drive, Great start but room for improvement!

It’s been nearly a week since Google released Google Drive, and it’s off to a great start. Drive is available for Android, Mac and PC with an iOS and Linux client promised soon. The cloud storage drive comes with 5 GB of free storage which is upgradeable to 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month. When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25GB.

I’ve been using Drive to replace Dropbox for many functions and have been satisfied with its initial implementation. I share my gDoc files as well as an assortment of other files between several of my devices.

Google Docs is integrated with Drive and I would like to see a shared Synced Google Music Folder that would replace the Google Music Manager for Up/Downloading music files. A shared Photo folder would also be a welcomed addition.

JooJoo successor Grid-10 tablet computer launched by Fusion Garage

by John Roberts

Technology Market

Fusion Garage, the company behind the Linux-based JooJoo tablet, launched the innovative Grid-10 tablet computer while also revealing itself as the brand behind TabCo, the parody company that captured industry and consumer attention over the past eight weeks. The Grid-10 is Fusion Garage’s second generation tablet and brings a host of new features to the tablet market including a new operating system, a dynamic user interface based on the semantic web that offers “predictive intelligence” and the highest resolution display available.

On the same global webcast, Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan demonstrated the Grid-4 smart phone, a standalone smart phone that also works in tandem with the Grid-10 tablet. The Grid-4 and Grid-10 take advantage of the company’s new Seamless State capability. Seamless State lets users consume content on a Grid-10, pause, and pick up that same content exactly where they left off while switching to the Grid-4.

Just last week, I decided to postpone my plans to root my Nook Color e-book reader. That was before several users had reported that the rooting procedure could be reversed — that is, the Nook Color could be returned to a pristine factory state.
