Dropbox announces Project Infinite

Project Infinite will enable users to seamlessly and securely access all their Dropbox files from the desktop, regardless of how much space they have available on their hard drives. Everything in the company’s Dropbox that you’re given access to, whether it’s stored locally or in the cloud, will show up in Dropbox on your desktop. If it’s synced locally, you’ll see the familiar green checkmark, while everything else will have a new cloud icon.

I’m not sure why but I still prefer Dropbox over Google Drive or Microsoft’s OneDrive. For some reason I just “trust” them more.

Project Infinite is exactly how I want my cloud storage to work and I can’t wait for it to hit. As to when that may be; Dropbox have no official statement on that.

Wired profiles “MR” startup darling Magic Leap

Technologies like Magic Leap’s will enable us to generate, transmit, quantify, refine, personalize, magnify, discover, share, reshare, and overshare experiences. This shift from the creation, transmission, and consumption of information to the creation, transmission, and consumption of experience defines this new platform.

 

Magic Leap is a company with no product and big promises. Since showing off their largely criticised demo we’ve not really seen anything else. Wired’s profile goes a long way to putting to rest any idea the product is vapourware but offers no further insight into when we might see more.

It’s a fascinating read though and worth a flick through at the very least.

MacStories’ iOS10 concept video is what we all want & more

For the past few months, I’ve been collaborating with Sam Beckett […] to visualize my iOS 10 wishes with a professional concept video and static mockups. Sam and I discussed my ideas for a couple of months, and he was able to visualize what I would like to have in iOS 10 – both for the iPhone and iPad – with a style and attention to detail I’m extremely happy with.

This video pretty much nails some of the biggest wish-list items we all have (Customisable Control Center – please for the love of god!) for the upcoming iteration of iOS.

We’ll know more in a little over a month when Apple’s WWDC conference kicks off on June 13th.

StartUp – Official Teaser Trailer – Crackle – YouTube

“StartUp” explores what happens when a brilliant, yet controversial tech idea gets incubated on the wrong side of the tracks by three strangers who don’t necessarily fit the mold of “tech entrepreneurs.” Set amongst the unconstrained, yet opportunist streets of Miami, “StartUp” weaves a complex and exciting narrative, featuring the high-stakes struggle of what one will do to reach ultimate success.

Think “A Current Affair” meets bitcoin drama.

The only reason I have any faith this might be more than a giant pile of dog shit is that Martin Freeman’s in it. If you saw the first season of “Fargo”, or the original UK “The Office” you know how good this man is*.

*Yes, I’m choosing to ignore his presence in The Hobbit.

Fallout: New Vegas – Choose Your Own Apocalypse

Remember those old “Choose your own adventure” books you’d read as a kid? I do but then I’m a million years old and books were a form of entertainment instead of a fire starter for the post zombie apocalypse.

Well this is exactly like that, except you don’t read and it’s on Youtube  using Fallout: New Vegas as its source.

I don’t even want to begin to think about the effort that went into making this but man am I enjoying it!

AuDA decide to allow direct .au registrations soon

Organisations and individuals will be able to register domain names directly in the top-level .au, as per the recommendations of a policy panel appointed by auDA last year.

Although there’s no official date as to when resellers will have the opportunity to start doing this it’s another big shake-up for the domain industry.

Squatters will no doubt be clearing their credit cards in anticipation.
