With the major announcement concerning Google Drive, In Easy Steps is well placed to ensure you make the most of cloud computing.
In the past week alone, Google Drive was launched, offering 5GB of free storage together with amazing search facilities that read scanned documents and recognise images. Visit https://drive.google.com/start#home
But not to be outdone, Dropbox is now allowing non-members to launch links to files help in the accounts of members(https://www.dropbox.com), and Microsoft has revamped SkyDrive so that it integrates into the Mac and PC operating system to run as a virtual folder (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/skydrive/home).
The forthcoming book – Cloud Computing in easy steps – will cover each of these innovations as well as many, many more ensuring you will not be left behind and can take full advantage of this exciting and growing area of computing.
