Click the headline.

 

 Copy.com is very much like Dropbox.

 

It works the same way but gives you a ton more free storage. Copy.com is giving 15GB of free storage compared to the 2GB which Dropbox gives until you have to upgrade to one of its plans.


If you download Copy using this link, you’ll be given 15GB + 5GB of free extra storage. Pretty cool.


According to their website, Copy is giving away the free storage for a limited time to celebrate the launch and to create some buzz.

 

You could do a lot with 20GB of free storage:


Store all your important files and documents
Backup your videos
Backup your music
Backup those important photos

Share files both secure or by a public link - It just have it all.

Idobata 2: talking Second Life and Skype

Idobata 2: talking Second Life and Skype | Culture and Fun - Second Life - Apps & Utilities | Scoop.it

Over the last couple of years, I’ve been asked by Yuzuru Jewell to evaluate some of his software tools – a task I’m always delighted to perform as time allows, although in truth, I’ve fallen a little behind of late. This being the case, when Yuzuru first notified me that he was working on a new version of Idobata, his a text-to-speech conversion tool, I made a point to be ready to clear time to look at it when he was ready to allow me access.

Into the Rift:Across The Grid With Lindal Kidd!

Into the Rift:Across The Grid With Lindal Kidd! | Culture and Fun - Second Life - Apps & Utilities | Scoop.it
 Into the RiftA while back, I did a short piece on the Oculus Rift immersive 3D virtual reality headset.  This device is still in development, but it's come a long way, so today we'll do a short update.

For those who've never heard of Oculus Rift, it's a device conceived by a young man, Palmer Lucky, and initially funded with a Kickstarter crowdsource funding campaign.  Everyone who has tried the prototypes absolutely raves about the total immersive experience the Rift provides.  You turn your head to look around you, and the headset senses that and changes the view.  You feel as if you are actually "inside" the on-screen reality.

This has really got the gaming community excited.  Big names like John Carmack (formerly of ID Software, and author of the hugely popular DOOM games) and Elon Musk are jumping on board the Rift bandwagon.  Carmack recently took a position as OculusVR's Chief Technical Officer, and has left ID to devote himself full time to the new technology.

Good thoughts on how you and your business can get the most out of the network on Google+!

Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, October 25, 2013 8:12 AM

Unlike any other social network, Google+ is where you go to create digital relationships with people and build relationships that can last a lifetime. 

Read this very interesting article and find out why Google+ is something you can't afford to be without if you have a social or business  life on the internet.

Mia Voss's curator insight, October 27, 2013 10:40 PM

Amen on all of these sentiments! That is what I hear constantly when I mention G+ - "But none of my friends are there!".  My answer: "Make new ones on Google Plus!"

Most people are already aware that Linden Lab are working to integrate the Oculus Rift headset, and are also probably aware that at the start of 2013, Simon Linden did some initial work in enabling the Leap Motion controller to work with Second Life with very basic movement / action controls.

Simon’s work was not a part of any official project, but acted as a proof-of-concept as to what might be achieved using Leap Motion as an alternative means of avatar control  to the keyboard / mouse, and he made the code available for anyone wishing to make use of it
