Free Cloud Storage Offers

Chris —  February 10, 2015 — 4 Comments

There are some great offers going on right now that can get you some free cloud storage. Who doesn’t like free storage?

1. 2 GB Upgrade for your Google Drive.

To get your free 2 GBs all you need to do is complete a security review of your account. This is something that’s good to do even if you don’t get the extra storage. Learn more on the Google Drive Blog (Read HERE). Offer good until Feb 17.

2. 100 GB of OneDrive Storage for 2 Years

The only catch is you need to sign up for a Bing rewards account, but seems like a small price to pay for 2 years of free storage. Learn more over at CNET (Read HERE).

Enjoy your storage!

I was reading this article over at PC world: Windows 7? Don’t Upgrade, Buy A New PC – Business Center – PC World:

Here is the very best advice for Windows XP users considering an upgrade to Windows 7: Don’t do it.

Windows 7’s biggest failing is that upgrading from XP requires reinstalling applications and moving personal data around. And who looks forward to doing that?

There are good technical reasons why Microsoft chose this path. However, for average XP users and many businesses, such a difficult upgrade makes Windows 7 a non-starter. Users that are more proficient will make the upgrade at their own peril, just make sure you have application install disks handy.

Yes, you can upgrade from XP to Windows 7, but is it really worth it?

No!

I totally agree that Microsoft really missed the boat by making it so difficult to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows 7.  I have an old XP machine I’d love to upgrade, but maybe I should just start looking at netbooks.

Do you plan on upgrading to Windows 7?

I can’t say I’ve always been the biggest X-box fan (OK don’t hate me), but this looks pretty cool.  I wonder if they will ever really come out with it.  I’m still waiting for a Microsoft Surface to show up somewhere.

Microsoft’s new ad refuting the brilliant “I’m a mac” campaign serves as a great illustration for talks on identity.

In case you missed it, here’s the new microsoft commercial with Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. In fact it was actually kind of funny.
