Been playin' around with GoodReader and ReaddleDocs for iOS (iPad), and I decided that, for the same price, it seems like ReaddleDocs is better choice, even though GoodReader has a couple additional features (supposedly). The interface in ReaddleDocs is much cleaner, and easier to navigate. GoodReader, much more cumbersome.

+logmein seems like they finally got into the storage arena, with their new service, Cubby. (http://cubby.com). Currently, it's still a beta and invite only. Not sure about whether it will become a pay product in the future. However, in its current state, it has the potential to be a huge competitor to DropBox. Even in its Beta stage, it has worked flawlessly for me. A few of the main advantages of Cubby over Dropbox are:
1) You get a free 5Gb of storage in the cloud for free.
2) If you use Peer to Peer sync (à la +GoodSync ) , then your cloud storage remains un-touched, and in this scenario, there is no limit on storage.
3) Complementary to (2), *any* folder can be made a Cubby, and shared with people, or embedded in a public link. A feature that Dropbox has been lacking since its inception, and though they have been working on making this a bit more viable, by allowing users to share folders within the DropBox root, they still don't allow DropBox folders from anywhere within the filesystem. Cubby Wins hands down on this one.

Have you tried this cloud storage yet? and if so, what do you think about it?

Just discovered a really neat, powerful and lightweight and FREE network discovery tool. FING.

Welcome to Windows 8! That's going to be a fun learning curve for the non tech-savvy.

I gotta say, having now used the #Drobo Elite and the #Synology 1511+. Though I love the Drobo. I'd have to say, the Synology blows the Drobo out of the water.
Feature set the DSM is amazing. Drobo has none of it. Control over RAID Volumes, as well as physical, and LUN allocation is so much more granular with the Synology. And this is still not their top of the line device. I still haven't quite test VMware performance on the Synology yet, but working. Perhaps these 2 device deserve a full on comparison review on my blog (http://blog.foreignkid.net) once I had a bit more time with the Synology.

hmm.. http://dashlane.com may end up being a good contender to Roboform. For now, it's in Beta and free, and, I have to say, quite stable, and full featured. #Dashlane

If you happen to have a Mac and an iOS device, and want to print to an non-Airprint enabled printer, you can use the Airprint Activator utility to make your printer accessible over Airprint from your iOS devices:
