« L’Âge des LOW TECH » : vers une civilisation techniquement soutenable - Perspectives gorziennes

« L’Âge des LOW TECH » : vers une civilisation techniquement soutenable - Perspectives gorziennes | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it

Après Quel futur pour les métaux ?, édité en 2010, et le chapitre 4 de l’ouvrage collectif Penser la décroissance, dirigé par Agnès Sinaï, où il invoque déjà la remise à l’honneur de « basses technologies », Philippe Bihouix explore l’ensemble des comportements économiques soutenables dans L’âge des Low tech.


Par « soutenables », il faut entendre à la fois généralisables à toute l’humanité et durables dans le temps au fil des générations. J’ai trouvé dans ce livre une mise en ordre experte de différents problèmes que j’essaie de soulever depuis plusieurs années de colloques en articles. C’est dire mon bonheur et mon soulagement.


Une vision prenant en compte les limites


Voici enfin, dans la perspective d’une transition écologique inévitable qui soit en même temps possible, voire désirable, un vrai programme d’orientation des différentes activités humaines tenant compte à la fois des limites de la planète (énergétiques, minières, biologiques, temporelles), des contraintes générées par le partage des ressources entre sept milliards d’habitants (ceux qui préfèreront la guerre la perdront de toute façon), et des handicaps cachés des nouvelles technologies (nommées High Tech pour faire moderne).

10 best cloud storage apps for Android

10 best cloud storage apps for Android | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it
We're quickly moving into an era where cloud storage is going to be a must have service for everyone. It's efficient, doesn't take up your storage, and it's far more convenient than carrying a hard drive around everywhere. You can get ahead of the curve with these awesome cloud storage apps for Android! You might also like:

The best Android productivity apps to get more work done!
The best file manager apps to keep your internal storage in check!




Amazon Cloud Drive
[Price: Free app, $12/year, $60/year]
Amazon Cloud Drive is a good start for anyone who uses Amazon Prime. Those with Amazon Prime will already get 5GB of free storage along with unlimited backup for photos and videos. You can upgrade to unlimited storage for about $60 per year. You can also use it if you don't have Amazon Prime but the 5GB of storage and unlimited photo backup will run you $12/year. The app is a bit buggy at times, but it works well enough and you can access your files online anytime.





Box
[Price: Free, $5/month, $10/month, and $15/month options + enterprise options]
Box.com is an up and comer in the cloud storage world and many apps already include Box integration for users. New users can sign up for personal accounts for free and get 10GB of free storage while $10/month gets you 100GB. Business prices range from $5-$15/month and include far more features. The app works pretty well and it puts an emphasis on simplicity and organization.





Copy
[Price: Free / $4.99/month, $9.99/month + enterprise options]
Copy is a lesser known cloud storage site that gives you a lot of bang for your buck. Users get 15GB of free cloud storage just for signing up and you can upgrade to 250GB ($4.99/month) or 1TB ($9.99/month) as your needs require. There are also enterprise options through their sister site, called Cude Drive. The app is decent and uses some basic Holo/Material Design elements. It can be buggy for some but the general consensus is that it works well.





Cubby
[Price: Free, large variety of paid options ranging from 100GB to 200TB (enterprise only)]
Cubby is another lesser known option that could be good if your storage needs are simple. What makes Cubby so special are its intense list of very customizable plans. Users can get 5GB of free storage anytime, but personal accounts can get anywhere (literally) from 100GB to 2.5TB extra for between $3.99 and $99.75/month. Enterprise users can get five users on 1TB for $39.99 up to 1000 users sharing 200TB of storage with plenty of options between. The app is solid, even if the interface is a tad antiquated. It works well enough for most people and this is a service to look into if you need a really specific amount of storage.





Dropbox
[Price: Free, $9.99/month, $15/month, $75/month + enterprise options]
Everybody knows about Dropbox and there's a good chance that some of you have this app pre-installed on your devices already. For normal users, you get 2GB of free cloud storage when you sign up with an option to upgrade to 1TB for $9.99/month. Businesses can get unlimited storage for about $15/month per person while enterprise users will have to contact Dropbox. The app comes with auto-photo upload, easy sharing options, the latest Android design elements, Microsoft Office support, and the ability to send files to others. It's a very solid option with more features than most.









Google Drive
[Price: Free, $1.99/month, $9.99/month + business options]
Google Drive is one of the most well-known and popular cloud storage apps available. Users get 15GB free out of the gate with unlimited photo and video backup via Google Photos if they so choose. There is also an assortment of office apps available for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. You can upgrade to 100GB ($1.99/month) or 1TB ($9.99) for fairly cheap and there are options for businesses as well. Most Android devices have this pre-installed so it's worth a shake to see if you like it.





MediaFire
[Price: Free, $$4.99/month, $49.99/month]
MediaFire started out as a file sharing service but has become a pretty decent cloud storage service in its own right. You can upload whatever you want and the service revolves around sharing and playing with those files in the cloud. Free users get 10GB and you can upgrade to 1TB for $4.99 ($3.79/month if you pay annually), and $49.99/month is the going rate for businesses. The app is a bit antiquated and a few users have had some issues, but it seems to work well enough overall.





Mega
[Price: Free, 4.99€/month, 9.99€/month, 19.99€/month, 29.99€/month]
Mega is the sequel to the now-defunct Megaupload, a cloud storage service that was taken down by the authorities a couple of years ago. Mega is an up-and-coming service that gives users 50GB for free just for signing up which is easily the largest sign-up bonus we've seen. It comes with a range of storage options that span from 200GB to 4TB. The app is quite flashy but there are a few bugs here and there that some people have experienced.





Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive)
[Price: Free, $1.99/month, $3.99/month + other options]
Microsoft OneDrive is a popular option because it integrates directly with a variety of Windows products. For starters, can get 5GB of free cloud storage and you can upgrade to 100GB for $1.99 or 200GB for $3.99. OneDrive storage is also included in every Office 365 subscription, be it for personal use or for businesses. In most cases, each Office 365 subscriber will get 1TB of storage and access to Microsoft Office. The app follows most of the Android design guidelines and has a decent rating on the Google Play Store. There is also full integration with Microsoft OneNote.





Yandex Disk
[Price: Free, $1/month, $2/month, $10/month]
Yandex Disk is a lesser-known but potentially great option. They offer up 10GB of free cloud storage for signing up and you can get 10GB more (total of 20GB) for $1/month or you can add 100GB for $2/month. There is also a 'server package' that gives you 1TB for $10/month. The app is also surprisingly good with Material Design elements and one of the few instances where yellow actually works in an application design. There are bugs but most people seem to be happy with this underrated option.

Non, les 15-24 ans ne PENSENT PAS qu'à leur smartphone

Non, les 15-24 ans ne PENSENT PAS qu'à leur smartphone | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it
Même s'ils y passent moins de temps que leurs aînés et qu'ils plébiscitent plutôt les nouveaux médias, les jeunes ne boudent pas télévision ni la radio…

Non, les jeunes n'ont pas totalement abandonné les "vieux médias", comme le montrent les conclusions d'une étude sur les 15-24 ans conduite par Strategir-WSA et Médiamétrie. Les jeunes sont notamment fans de télévision. Chacun est en moyenne en contact 6,3 fois par jour avec ce média. 78% des 15-24 ans regardent la télévision en live au moins une fois par semaine et deux sur dix autrement : 16% en live sur l'ordinateur, 8% sur tablette et 6% sur smartphone. La télévision de rattrapage prend aussi de l'ampleur : 34% la regardent une fois par semaine au moins.


Les 15-24 ans ne délaissent pas non plus la radio : chaque jour, les trois quart d'entre eux écoutent une station. Un quart écoute une émission musicale entre 14 et 18 heures. L'étude recense six points de contact par jour en moyenne. Les jeunes auditeurs se distinguent pour leur goût pour les radios musicales. 12,3% en écoutent une au moins une fois par semaine. 74% des 15-24 ans listent d'ailleurs la musique en live comme première motivation d'écoute de la radio. Mais l'information tient aussi sa place. Trois jeunes sur dix âgés de 18 à 24 ans  s'informent via les flashs des musicales, 19% via les radios généralistes.

Why We're Addicted To Our Smartphones, But Not Our Tablets

Why We're Addicted To Our Smartphones, But Not Our Tablets | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it

Remember all of the wisecracks about executives and their BlackBerry addictions? Back then, constant contact was limited to the few and the mighty — relatively speaking, of course. But now, the last laugh might be on us. In record time, our smartphones have become indispensable, and as mobile technology has become integrated into nearly every aspect of our lives, our smartphones are shifting from device to dependency.


But while it’s now clear that we are locked in an intense relationship with our smartphones, one has to wonder why this courtship hasn’t turned into a love triangle with tablets. After all, no matter how sleek our iPhone 6 is, our iPad or Android tablet is equally smooth and packed with life-organizing apps.


So, what is it about our smartphones that makes them so attractive? And why is the addiction we feel toward them so much stronger than to our tablets?

Allan Tsuda's curator insight, November 25, 2015 10:34 PM

Interesting in that these kids (albeit only those in this article) say that technology and information isn't overwhelming because they grew up in it. I can think of a new horror movie called, "Kids No Tech". Can you imagine the horror and pain of having to live where there is no internet? A world where there is no one to quantify and validate your existence? Now that would be overwhelming for many of this generation. Times are changin'. I'm glad I was born when I was.
