One of the great drivers for cloud use, is economy. There is no better product economically than when it’s free. And we just love free Cloud!
And we love Google.
So what do you get when you combine a free 5GB Cloud based storage service with PC Sync and Google? Google Drive of course!
Google have had several attempts in the past at making an impact on the Cloud Storage market and have attempted various aspects in this space before, however now they may have just got it right.
The installation and setup are very easy, and anyone who has used Dropbox will be able to set it up quickly and easily.
Like all other Google applications, Google Drive is linked to your Gmail or Google account and login, meaning you can easily take all your information , be it documents, music, work files or other information with you where ever you go, just by signing into Google on any PC.
Optionally, you can install the free PC Sync component and start sharing local drives with users, very akin to Dropbox. You then have complete access to your Google Drive from your PC, or really any PC you wish to physically synchronise your information to.
The files are also very easily accessed and integrated into, especially, your Android mobile phone, as are all Google Suite apps. Just download the app from the Play Store, install, and instantly you can access all of your files anywhere. Also you will find all of your Google Groups saved files in your Google Drive, and sharing files is as easy as a right click, then email from your Gmail contacts! There is no mistaking this is a Google product, it is very well integrated for a startup product.
The Google Drive service starts with an impressive 5GB for free, and you can bet your bottom dollar that will be incrementally increased over time as we have seen with Gmail over the years.
The Bring Your Own Device movement is not new, however with small business now having equal access to the Cloud as its larger competitors, BYOD should now be considered alongside that cloud takeup.
What Is BYOD?
Quite simply the notion behind Bring Your Own Device is simple. Rather than our Gen Y and now Millenials being expected to perform on something that belongs in a museum, they may choose to bring to work their own iPad, Macbook Pro or other device of choice to work on.
Said Gen Y and Millenials argue they will be more content and more productive working on their pride and joy gadget, and also have the flexibility of working out of hours – bonus. Or is it?
Why, and Why Not To BYOD
The advantages of BYOD far outweigh the disadvantges.
Some things to consider are this: Security, Support and Insurance claims. Should said multi-thousand dollar device be damaged whilst at the workplace or being used for work purposes, who’s policy will cover the replacement? Your insurance broker should be able to tailer a BYOD package to suit.
Your IT department will need to broaden their knowledge outside of the simple PC / Server architecture, however for Gen Y and now Millenial Network Admins, this shouldn’t be much of an issue. You could always lock the choices down to a few devices to keep things manageable.
Access at its most crudest could be kept to a secure Remote Desktop Connection, only allowing connection to the device and user account in the allowed hours of operation. Best Practice Active Directory management would ensure User Access is also restricted.
As Public and Private cloud environments gain increasing traction, the argument of access and reliable provision of services becomes almost nul and void.
Cloud Vendors do need to be Brand Agnostic in their rollouts though for maximum market penetration.
Cashflow Positive Initiative
Another benefit to the small business owner is cashflow. Whether or not you choose to provide employees with an allowance, per Kraft in the USA (who gives their employees a Device Stipend), or not depends on your requirements and BYOD Policy.
There is a real advantage to work with your employee here and show you really are an avant-garde employer.
Why not come to a Salary Sacrifice arrangement with your employee (seek Tax Advice first!), then offer to rent the device back from your Employee?
Or simply pay your Employees a Technology Allowance so they can buy the latest tech of choice safe in the knowledge the Allowance will cover the costs. The Employee simply claims the cost of the gadget in their personal income tax return (again seek Tax Advice first!).
However, the Australian Taxation Office have declared that iPads have substantially the same functionality as laptops hence would be treated the same as laptops in tax claims.
So what are you waiting for, you’ve implemented some cloud technologies, you’re considering moving to Private Cloud, now take the final step and outsource your hardware to your Employees. They will love you for it.
Certainly one of the most leaked and rumoured phone releases this side of the iPhone 4, has got to be the Samsung Galaxy S III.
A myriad of bogus claims, spy shots and other material has been plaguing the internet for at least the last six months, moreso in recent times.
However, Youmobile are claiming this to be the final iteration, and we have some live pics for you to decide. Is this the real deal?
The unit shown certainly has the Galaxy lines and is Samsung branded. It is also showing Nexus style capacitive buttons rather than the previously flaunted hardware buttons.
The screen is said to be the reported size of 4.7″ with resolution of 1280×720, and is Super Amoled which is great news.
We can also see from the above shot, that the version numbering is also in line with its Galaxy forebears. This time around showing GT-I9300.
One thing we are not so sure about is that reports have previously suggested the Galaxy S III might don the GT-I9500 monicker.
Potentially Samsung may still have the real Galaxy S III under wraps as the GT-I9500 and this GT-I9300 may be a slightly different product with some lower specs.
Or will there be different model designations for different world markets?
Only time will if this IS the REAL Galaxy S III.

Enjoy this video which depicts a roundup of all known rumours so far, and don’t forget to tell us what you think! Fact or fiction?
Well there certainly is a lot of “leaked” information coming out on the interwebs regarding the Galaxy S III.
Samsung is a little like Apple in that regards.
However a German Blog has released pictures from Samsung’s Ad Agency Weber Shandwick, and claim these to be the final Marketing shots of the Quad Core Super Phone.
The Blog also goes on to suggest a May 22 release date, which could explain all these recent leaks, and hype up in activity.
We can see from the shots that the sleek unibody and slender design we have seen in graphical renders recently, appear to be true.
This really is going to be one amazing piece of technology from Samsung, who have never disappointed with the Galaxy range since release.
Looking a little closer seems to reveal a dedicated camera button, as well as two speakers for stereo sound. One on the bottom of the phone and one at the very top.
It also appears once and for all that there will still be a hardware button and not the Galaxy Nexus ICS style digital keys. For sure there will still be two capacitive touch buttons besides the central hardware button.
We have here a Photoshopped Black edition based on the above pics.
One thing’s for sure, we are on the edges of our seats every day from here on in Samsung!
