Click here to join Dropbox and we both get free space! Dropbox allows you to never be without your files, even if your computer crashes or phone dies.

Dropbox is one of the most popular online file storage/ sharing services currently available. Here is what makes Dropbox so popular.

Cost - Dropbox is completely free, with no hidden charges leaping out at users at any time.

Capacity - Users are given 2 GB of storage capacity. This may not seem like much, but it is certainly plenty to start off with. Adding storage is also possible - and without incurring charges. Users have a whole array of free options to increase their storage capacity, including, among others:

Invite friends/ acquaintances to Dropbox
Connect Dropbox to Facebook/ Twitter
Send Fan mails

Convenience - Extremely easy to use, Dropbox can either be used online or by installing the Dropbox application. This is quick, easy to do and allows automatic saving/ synchronisation of files between devices (which should also have the application installed) without having to use a browser.

Accessibility - With the app installed, it is possible to access files from wherever a user is, any time on any device, even if offline at the time (the Dropbox folders on all devices are updated automatically every time a file is saved). Mobile users are able to download only required files in order to save space.

Sharing - Files can be shared with individual users or public by designating folders to specific users or enabling them for public sharing.

Back-up - Dropbox is a convenient solution to backing up files in a safe and easy to access fashion. By storing files in the cloud, data sticks, CDs, DVDs and other easily lost or damaged storage devices - and the cost involved - become a thing of the past.

What's more, deleting files accidentally will not result in losing them, because Dropbox keeps easy to retrieve copies of all deleted files for 30 days.

Don't wait any longer. I need more free space and so do you! Click here to join Dropbox and we both get free space!

CITY of INDUSTRY, CA (May 6, 2014) – CyberPower Inc. www.cyberpowerpc.com, a global manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, today announced its FANG Mini series – an ultra-small form factor computer that literally puts Intel or AMD quad core gaming rig power in the palm of your hand.

This tiny PC will fit comfortably in a crowded entertainment center in your living room, tucked away on the back of your computer monitor via the included VESA bracket, or unassumingly sit on your desk next to your keyboard and mouse.

The FANG Mini Pro’s Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU can output to dual 4K resolution displays and provide acceleration for a variety of tasks including video encoding and light gaming without putting added stress on the cooling system. The AMD Radeon R9 M275X in the FANG Mini R9 can handle high-definition, high-fidelity gaming and use AMD’s App Acceleration technology to provide improved performance across the board in all applications.

Sharkoon Launches ATX Gaming Tower in "Brawny Design"

The Sharkoon BD28 is a tailored gaming ATX case in a brawny design, which is available in the exterior colors black and gunmetal. With the black version, the colors red, blue or green can be selected for the interior finish with the front LEDs and case fans also illuminating in the corresponding color. The gunmetal edition is available with two blue LED fans and a black interior finish. 

The provided acrylic side panel provides insight into the inner workings. Thanks to the issued side panels and its 235 mm width, installation of very large tower coolers with a maximum height of 179 mm is ensured. Extra-long graphics cards of up to 415 mm can also be installed due to its modular hard drive management. While fully equipped with the maximum number of 2.5" hard drives/SSDs the case still offers enough space for VGA cards up to 325 mm.      

A low-noise 120 mm fan is pre-installed behind the massive mesh front and also in the back of the BD28. In addition, it offers flexible fan installation possibilities with either two 120 mm, two 140 mm or one 180 mm fans can be mounted on the top with a dust filter. An additional 120 mm fan can be installed in the front.

Two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0 as well as two audio ports in the front offers fast access for the connection of peripheral devices. In the event that the mainboard does not have an internal 19-pin USB 3.0 connector, the USB 3.0 ports can also optionally be used in USB 2.0 mode.
