Mediamax – 25 GB of free online storage

Its been a while since I wrote. Things have been pretty hectic at my end lately. Anyway, just tumbled across this cool new website that gives you 25 GB of free space to save all of your photos, videos and media files. Thought you might find it useful. Check it out.

“MediaMax provides not only raw file storage that’s accessible from any PC, but also file sharing and hosting, MP3 streaming and backup/sync software. Of course, the real highlight is the amount of storage–five times what you get from services like XDrive. However, you’re limited to 1GB’ worth of downloads per month, and the maximum file size is 25MB. Upgrading to a paid MediaMax account (starting at $4.95/month) raises or eliminates these kinds of restrictions. But you don’t even need a credit card to sign up for a free account–just a username and password.” – Lifehacker review


The “Wow” starts now!

I’ve been wanting to take this sucker out for a test drive myself and find out what the ruckus is all about with this sleek looking MacOS wannabe. Believe it or not, the early reviews are in and all the hype seems to be holding out true so far. Hmm, it better be good for all the years it took (nearly 5 years!) to roll out.

You might want to take it out for a test drive too WITHOUT installing anything on your PC at this Microsoft Virtual Labs site. This is a neat way to get familiar with the look and feel of the new OS, if you plan to become an early adopter.
