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Acronis True Image 2015 has been replaced by Acronis True Image 2016 and it now does only local backup and recovery, making it a clear separation with Acronis True Image Cloud.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.
Cisco launched the new Cisco Linksys EA4500 Router that is retailing for S$299 back in June 2012. It incorporates the new Cisco Connect Cloud which enables you to connect, control and interact with your router and it’s connected devices wherever you are as long as you are connected to the Internet.
It seems that SingTel has launched its own version of cloud syncing and storage which is called SingTel Store & Share. Think of it as SingTel’s version of Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive or even Dropbox.
Right now SingTel’s Store & Share only supports PC, iOS and Android platform. No support for Mac yet.
Google Drive is finally here after years of waiting! Just in time to jump to cloud syncing/storage bandwagon. Microsoft has released their new SkyDrive 2 days ago.
Dropbox now faces some serious competition. I am a paying Dropbox user (Dropbox Pro 50 (50GB plan) – US$99/year) for almost 2 years now and I have used up about 95% of my storage space and I didn’t want to go to the Pro 100 (100GB plan) because at US$199/year it is pretty expensive. I hope this competition will drive down the prices for Dropbox, if not I would have to switch to Google Drive or Microsoft SkyDrive.
Since I am given a copy of Trend Micro Titanium Cloud Edition Maximum Security 2012 (what a long software name) to try it out and so happen my ESET NOD32 Antivirus subscriptions is expiring soon, I will give Trend Micro a chance to see how well it fair against ESET. But before that can happen, I need to format my computer because for some reasons Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1 refuses to install on my computer. Obviously I am not using a pirated Windows 7, it is original from my NUS MSDN Account. Since Li Xiang still need my computer to do some design work for her friend’s wedding, I can only format it after mid October 2011.
