by gadjosevilla from 08-16-2014
As we increasingly work and move between computers and mobile devices, the need to consider constant and secure backup strategies becomes more important. For the back to school season, there are various hardware and software solutions that enable quick, effortless and safe backup solutions for our vital information, projects and critical e-mails as well as the documents we need for reference and for submission.
A good backup solution begins with a plan and knowing that at any given time you need to have at least two secure backups of your most recent work and documents. USB thumbdrives, external hard drives and nearby servers are all good ideas but most people should look at having a third option and one that is possibly offsite. Let's look at some strategies for backups as well as some products worth considering.

The box for the Sony Alpha A6000 Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera is deceptively small, just like the camera itself. I’ve been in the Sony Alpha family since the A350, and even my most recent purchase (the A35) is a hand-filling device. The A6000, on taking it out of the box, had me first asking “where’s the rest of it?”
I suppose I should be used to this by now: camera manufacturers are packing a hell of a lot of camera into a small packages. With that in mind I pulled the A6000 out of the box, sorted the accessories, and got to work on finding out what it’s like and who it’d be great for. Read on, true believers.

It's a big week in gaming with Cologne, Germany, hosting Gamescom 2014. This large gaming trade fair has become like a mini-E3 Expo, with many major gaming players in attendance revealing new games, hardware and other surprises. Earlier we had a look at Microsoft's press conference, and the great new Xbox One bundles coming this fall, and now it's time to see what Sony had to show off. How about games, games, and more games!
Few gadgets really make me sit up and say, “Wow” these days, but the latest delivery in my mailbox just did. A pocket-sized battery pack, that will not only charge my rickety old iPhone, my larger iPad, camera, just about any gadget I own, AND it’ll also boost my car? I’ve gotta say, The Cobra Jumpack is something to get excited about.

Not many student dorms or residences come with cable TV. After all, you’re there to learn, not to chill out with Robert Downey Jr. But these days a lot of dorms come with WiFi, which means you can get yourself a TV streaming device, and watch TV or movies whenever you want, in the privacy of your (tiny) room. Check out the Top 3 streaming devices available.
