The updates are based on input from customers who told Acronis that the two most common data protection problems that families face today are damaged or lost devices, and running out of disk space on their devices.
Acronis True Image Cloud
Acronis True Image Unlimited is now known as Acronis True Image Cloud and it now supports multiple devices and mobile devices. This means you can backup your Android, iPhone, iPad and Windows devices using the Acronis True Image App on the respective platforms.
Acronis True Image 2016
Acronis True Image 2015 has been replaced by Acronis True Image 2016 and it now does only local backup and recovery, making it a clear separation with Acronis True Image Cloud. One of the major new feature of True Image 2016 is the “try & decide”. This feature provides you a controlled, temporary environment to safely test new software, drivers, and system configurations.
Every year on the 31st March is World Backup Day. World Backup Day is a day for people to learn about the increasing role of data in our lives and the importance of regular backups. This independent initiative aim to raise awareness about backups and data preservation.
For this year’s World Backup Day, I will be giving out a copy of Acronis True Image 2015 for PC and Mac (1 computer) with Unlimited Cloud Subscription for a year worth US$99.99 (S$140) to three lucky winners, thanks to Acronis.
Do you know that Acronis is founded in Singapore in 2002 and they moved their HQ back to Singapore just last year?
Acronis was founded by Serguei Beloussov, Ilya Zubarev, and Max Tsyplyaev as a separate business unit within SWsoft and in 2003, Acronis was spun off as a separate company. Just a FYI, SWsoft is the parent company of Parallels, Inc (source: Wikipedia).
I am a huge fan of Western Digital and I use their products for my backup purposes, I thought I might share their article on “Smarter Ways To Backup Your Data”. Personally, I am using some of the Western Digital products listed in the article below.
Got to know this really cheap external battery charger for iPhone 3G from Hardware Zone Forums. The seller, free-4-flying, is based in Hong Kong. Once in a while he will have a sale on that. The cheapest I saw is US$6.99 but unfortunately when I bought that time it is US$8.48 (S$11.87). The price stated includes shipping which makes it real cheap!
I bought it on the 18th September 2009 and it was shipped on the next day on 19th September 2009. Took 17 days to reach me, arrived in my mailbox yesterday on the 6th October 2009. This is technically the first item I purchased from eBay. The very first item I bought is the Apple Care for my MacBook Pro =D
