Google is soon going to introduce an update on June 28th (for consumers) to its cloud storage service Google Drive, which will allow you to backup your data by selecting certain folders on your computer and syncing them to their respective folders rather than copying them onto one folder on Drive. The service is being called Backup & Sync, and if you don’t have an offsite cloud backup storage plan (you should have one; I’ll get to that later), you’ll have little-to-no excuse. While more higher-rated data backup services like Crashplan and Backblaze exist, Google’s offering is more accessible and easier to dive into.
The video above comes from FPSRussia, an online entertainment show with a main character who is known for being a faux-Russian arms aficionado. In many of his prior videos, he has tazed his willing fans, blown up trees using .50 caliber guns, and even driven an APC through a drive-thru at a McDonald’s. Now, McDonald’s may be good enough for some people (I’m more of a Whataburger guy, myself), however this time he’s got a hankering for some good ol’ White Castle burgers. Plus, this time FSPRussia managed to get his hands on an actual WWII-era tank.
Man, I wish we could get some White Castles down here in Texas…
There’s this company that I have never heard before of until today called LaCie, and apparently they have a history of creating and releasing network storage devices that are visually restrained in design in their presentation (by the way, that’s fancy talk for saying that most of their devices look like boxes). There’s the LaCie “CloudBox” that works as a hybrid 100 GB HDD that backs up your data locally AND in the cloud simultaneously, and the LaCie “Wireless Space” (it’s kind of like Apple’s “Time Capsule”) that works as a network-attached storage (NAS) local backup drive AND and wireless (WLAN) router.
