Cloud Save for Google Chrome sends files from the Web to your online storage

We've shared a handful of Google Chrome context menu extensions before, and this weekend we discovered a new one which is oozing potential: Cloud Save. Install Cloud Save, and you'll add the ability to right-click files on Web pages you visit and zap (or sideload) them to various online services like Google Docs, Dropbox, Picasa, Flickr, Posterous, CloudApp, and Box.Net. The extension...

Google's Android cloud music sync already works on hacked app

A while back, an .APK installer for an updated Android Music App was yanked out from the digital aether and put on display. Unfortunately, it was a little too force-close-happy for our liking. A little volatility has never derailed the enthusiastic testers at XDA before, though, so we weren't surprised to read that several users had recently discovered something very cool about the app. After...

DropSpace adds real Dropbox sync to Android

Dropbox offers a lovely client for Android, but it's lacking true "sync" functionality. You can merely browse your Dropbox, pull files into the device, and manually upload specific files. DropSpace is a little Android app that makes Dropbox on Android work like Dropbox – that is, you get real folder synchronization in the background. When you run the app you're prompted for your...

Windows 8 leaked screenshots show Windows Live integration, taskbar tweaks

Tangible Windows 8 details are beginning to emerge with some screenshots of the OS making the rounds on the Internet. Not much is revealed, but we do get a glimpse at a couple interesting changes. For starters, taskbar progress indicator support has been expanded to other built-in Windows functions, like hardware installation. Windows Live integration is evolving, too -- you'll be able to...

Mozy announces sync apps for desktop, iOS and Android

Desktop-to-cloud backup provider Mozy has announced that it will soon release Mozy Sync, a file synchronization service like Dropbox or SugarSync. The company has also stated that Android and iOS apps will be available and that an invite-only beta is underway. You'll have to be a current MozyHome customer to be considered as a tester. What's not spelled out is how the service will work....

Microsoft cloud bulges with Live Mesh data

Based on a post from the Windows Team blog, it appears as though users are indeed heading "to the cloud!" Live Mesh -- the company's cross-device synchronization and remoting platform -- now boasts more than 5 million connected devices. From those devices, 3 million users have pushed more than 2.2 petabytes to the Windows Live cloud. That's a whole lotta data -- but we wonder how much higher...

Google Apps customers can now purchase additional storage on the cheap

A while back, Google started offering inexpensive storage upgrades for Google Docs storage. Now, users with a domain set up on Google Apps can purchase additional storage, too. The change means you can boost your disk space to 20GB for a paltry $5 per year, or a whopping 1TB for $256 per year (which works out to about $22 per month). That's a very reasonable price for additional cloud storage,...

Picasa Web Albums now store unlimited small images and videos

Recently, some users of Google's Picasa Web service noticed something odd. Like Gmail, Picasa Web tells you how much of your total available storage you're using. Something appeared to be wrong, however -- users were reporting having more free space than they previously had. It's common for Google to silently bump our upper storage limits, but how were these users showing the same number of photos...

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to ship with cloud-based FileVault?

As the release of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion gets closer and closer, rumors are starting to appear about what functionality Apple will add to the new version of its operating system. Today's rumor is based on an Apple patent, and it involves secure online storage. Apple has been rumored to go all in with cloud services for many years, yet for some reason Mobile Me is all we've got so far. But if...

AVG LiveKive to launch as Dropbox alternative

When you think of AVG, you probably think antivirus -- probably because it has sat near the top of Download.com's list of most downloaded apps for years. AVG has been tapped by tens of millions of users for malware protection, and the company now hopes those same people will turn to it for synchronized cloud storage. Called AVG LiveKive, the new service will launch in beta form next week --...

Microsoft's Azure cloud platform hits 31,000 customers on one-year anniversary

Microsoft's Windows Azure cloud computing platform is now one year old, and the Redmond company has announced that there are now more than 31,000 customers utilizing the platform. While that means growth slowed somewhat from Azure's first six months -- when some 20,000 signed on -- the 55% increase is still quite impressive. After an initial inrush of early adopters and startups, Microsoft is...

Is Google Music's cloud model causing record labels to steer clear?

According to any number of sources -- and indications from Google itself -- Google Music should have launched sometime late last year. We're now a full month into 2011, and still no Google Music. So what's the holdup? Business Insider has one source who feels that Google's cloud-based model is the bone of contention. "The challenge is that the publishers want to be paid for EVERY download -...

Mozy kills unlimited backup, time to take matters into your own hands

Set-it-and-forget-it backups to the cloud seemed like a great idea at one point. With several providers offering good annual rates on unlimited storage, a silent, overnight upload was a good way to make sure your data was protected and stored offsite. Now, however, Mozy has dropped its unlimited plan and its prices are jumping to a level where cloud backup just doesn't make sense for users with a...

Vid.ly offers cloud-powered universal video transcoding for free

Vid.ly, a one-stop shop for uploading, transcoding and sharing video content for all screen-sizes and devices, has just come online. You'll need a beta key to sign up, which you can freely obtain from Mashable, TechCrunch or hacks.mozilla.org. In essence, Vid.ly simply lets you upload a raw movie, and await an email notification to tell you that the upload and transcode has been completed. You...

Google Cloud Print comes to iPhone, Android via Gmail mobile website

At long last, Google has finally connected one of its apps to the much-anticipated Google Cloud Print service. You can now print from any mobile phone -- as long as it's Android 2.1 or iOS 3 or later -- to any printer that you have successfully connected to your Google Cloud Print account. The service only works via the Gmail mobile website for now -- just visit www.gmail.com on your phone --...
