Dropbox offering additional free storage, for referrals!

by George Heymann | @techeadlines

Dropbox has been one of our most used Android apps, it was selected as a must have Android app by us in the past.

Dropbox is a cloud based file storage, sharing and syncing service. It allows you to access your files stored within your virtual Dropbox from any other device (PC, Mac, Phone etc…) that has the software installed. Great way to share files across devices and platforms. I use this software daily to share files between various devices without the need to carry flash drives or disks.

Dropbox is now offering to expand your free storage up to 16GB. You can take advantage this offer by inviting your friends to Dropbox! For every friend who joins and installs Dropbox, they’ll give you both 500 MB of bonus space.

If you don’t currently have a Dropbox account  start here, once you sign-up for service you can invite your friends with your personal referral links, email, or by utilizing Facebook and Twitter.

10 Things I love and Hate about iTunes

by Laura Backes

iTunes, like so many other great parts of our digital world, has things we love about it and things we hate about it. Sometimes the things we love, we also hate. Here’s my list of things I love and hate about iTunes.

  1. Love: It’s easy to buy songs – Your credit card or your iTunes gift card are attached to your account, so that all you have to do to purchase songs is click ‘Download’ and it transfers the song to your computer or your iPhone instantly. It’s wonderful!
  2. Hate: Too easy to buy songs – The other side of that story is the fact that it is so easy to do download songs that you do it more often than you would if you were purchasing at a store. It is so easy, that you don’t put as much thought into it and probably buy a lot of music that you wouldn’t have otherwise. Read the rest of this entry »

Steam: Digital cross-platform game distribution system done right!

by George Heymann

Steam is a digital distribution, digital rights management (DRM) system developed by Valve Corporation that is both multi-player and cross-platform.

One of the advantages of purchasing games digitally through the Steam Store are that purchases can be played on any computer that has the steam client installed. Software purchases are permanently tied to your Steam account not a specific computer.

I don’t know how many times, I’ve lost or damaged game disks or misplaced licensing documentation for games that I had previously purchased. With Steam those potential problems are no longer an issue. Just download and install the Steam Client, enter your account credentials and you have full access to your library of purchased games.

SF Planet Mini Display Port to DVI-I Female Adapter for Mac, inexpensive and works well

by George Heymann

I recently moved from a desktop to a laptop, as my primary personal computer. A big part of that decision was being able to find a laptop that was a good compromise between power and portability. Once I decided on the Mac platform, I needed a convenient way to be able to use the laptop with a full size monitor, keyboard and mouse for use in my home office.

In order to be able to use the 25” PC display I already had with my laptop I needed to purchase a Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter. Apple will sell you an adapter for $29.00, or you can order a third party adapter for less, considerably less.

Is the PC era finished already?

by A. Montaqim

Technology Market

Nobody needed to say it but PCs were always destined to be superseded by newer, faster, better and – hopefully – cheaper devices. We all knew that, but didn’t think about it. It’s the nature of technology – everything changes, all the time.

But when Mark Dean, Chief Technology Officer of IBM Middle East and Africa, wrote a blog heralding “the post-PC era“, the idea that the PC was on the way out went from the back of everyone’s mind straight to the front.
