New Personal Storage from EggCyte

Here is another new personal cloud storage released and launched this week, although we are unsure whether this is one of the cheapest cloud storage 2014.  This is called EggCyte although still hoping that Kickstarter would help develop the concept and into production with a $500k pledge.

This cloud is particularly for developers who would create applications that would link to their personal storage.  Sort of an SDK package.  The company says that Egg is a personal web server.  Digital media and other personal stuff will be kept private an not a 3rd party company can have your information.

wiki for SDK:
“We created Egg, a personal Web server that lets you share your content without losing control of it to a cloud company. The Egg has 64/128/256GB of storage space and a battery that provides about 10-12 hours of active use when away from a power outlet. The Egg is also an access point that allows you and others to view your content even if there is no available wireless connection.
We partnered with Big Bang, a leading design firm based out of Atlanta, to develop the industrial design and look-and-feel of the product. Our inspiration was the egg, which is the container for things that are very precious which eventually become things that are even more wonderful in nature.
The Egg is roughly half the size of a smartphone. It uses an Intel Atom-class application processor. It has Wi-Fi for Connectivity and a 2.4” – 320 x 240 pixel color screen.
Content can be seamlessly imported into the Egg using USB or Wi-Fi and stored in 64/128/256GB of onboard Flash. You can leave the Egg plugged in and connected to your Wi-Fi at home or carry it with you and connect to any available Wi-Fi access point at a coffee shop or airport. When unplugged and during normal operation, the product is expected to have 10–12 hours of battery life.”
So, do you think this could be a solution and would potential be amoung the best cloud storage for photos and videos considering the growing hacking of personal pictures from cloud storage.  Well see in the near future how Eggcyte performs.

Dropbox little improvements that counts

While dropbox has been improving lately with price and storage as we mentioned in this post, they have once again added a new very useful feature.

This update is specifically Android users.  With its recent Android update now lets you transfer directly your files to the external storage.  It is a simple addition but for some old dropbox users, it was a reason for them to stop using the cloud storage.  After all, what is the use of having all the online storage when you can't even transfer it to your SD card.

For most of us, this is another good addition and we hope dropbox will continue to add some new features and probably give more increase in the space especially that google drive just released some crazy offer for students and teachers.

I am pretty more updates are yet to come and more better offers so until then, for Android users, this is another great feature that is very useful (although this should have been a first "must have" in every cloud storage consideration, right.)
