If you have been using the previous Mac OS X versions such as Lion, have you upgraded to the much touted, awesome Mountain Lion? The world seems to have taken note of the most sophisticated computer operating system yet. I expect a flurry of updates and new releases to catch up with the demand for new Mac OS Mountain Lion. Among the other news today, the first one in the list is already keeping up with the Apple release:
Dolly Drive Upgrades Itself
Following the release of Mountain Lion on July 25th ( available on the Mac App Store) Cirrus Thinking – the guys who make Dolly Drive for Mac – have announced a recent upgrade that makes Dolly Drive available for Mountain Lion users. Although in Beta right now, the service looks promising indeed. Dolly Drive is as pro-Apple as it can be. The makers of Dolly Drive were Apple fans and they founded the company Cirrus thinking in the year 2009. Dolly Drive is an all-in-one cloud backup service that also included sync-and-share, versioning, etc. Dolly Drive also allows you to run a clone of the new Mountain lion OS instead of actually updating your present OS version.
G Cloud Backup
Are you an Android user? Did you know that there’s an Android application called G Cloud Back up to back up your mobile device? This fits neatly with another blog posts I did a long time ago on doing a cloud backup for your mobile phones. According to Mark Chubb of Phones Review G Back up is much like iCloud and it backs up your contacts, call logs, music, videos, audio, podcasts, documents, and much more. Install the app, pick and choose your files, and do your back ups. Data transfer is reportedly secure, auto-backup functionality, and much more.
Backblaze Gets a $5Million Boost
A Gigaom release reports that Backblaze – the 5 year old cloud backup service – saw TMT investments funding $5 Million in fresh funding.TMT investments is a U.K based venture capitalist firm. The California based backup company now aims to focus on marketing and for recruiting staff. Backblaze, until now, was severely short-staffed while seeking to do everything by themselves instead of outsourcing support or operations.
