Title: Amazon Cloud Drive
Post by: Mick on May 01, 2012, 09:04:31 AM
Just a heads up.  For anyone needing a bit of extra storage space for you files I came across "Amazon Cloud Drive" 

With this you can get 5 GB of free online storage.  And more space if you want to pay for it. https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/learnmore

Anyone used this?

I used cloud computing once, but all the metal parts rusted due to the water vapor!  :uglystupid2:

Trusting Microsoft and their Hotmail?   No, I think not!

I've just signed up, it seems to be replacing Google Docs + a bit.

I think I'm on the track to selling my soul to Google as I've gone Android and not Apple  :legit:

The only difference is that you have to pay Apple for the privilege  :o

Is 5GB of space actually any use these days? Seems awfully small for saving a decent amount of photos.
