There are many options for online document storage. Microsoft OneDrive, Google Drive, Box.com, Dropbox.com are the best known, but not by far the only options.

Have you heard about Microsoft OneNote?
If not, get ready to get organized! Microsoft OneNote is the electronic version of a three-ring binder (or a Day Planner – the one with all the all the tabs and pages). It mimics the concept quite well: You create a notebook on any topic you wish, create tabs to separate various types info, and then add pages to the tabs, just as you would in physical paper. You can have more than one notebook, and as many ‘tabs' as you need in each of them. They even LOOK like tabs and pages.Read More

With Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Opera all duking it out for browser market share, some might think the world doesn’t need another Web browser. However, a group of developers led by Tim Howes and Eric Vishria have taken the wraps off of RockMelt, a new Web browser that builds on the notion of a social Web by building Facebook and Twitter directly into the browser. RockMelt will also include integrated sharing tools and an enhanced way to navigate through Google search results via the keyboard to find exactly what you want. Additionally, if you happen to be using a public computer or someone else’s system, no problem: RockMelt is the first browser to be “fully backed by the cloud.” Just run RockMelt, and your personalized browsing experience is waiting for you.

Apple has sent out invitations to the press for a 'special event' scheduled on September 1st at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts Theater in San Francisco. The text in the invite offered no hint of what might be in store, but there has been plenty of speculation leading up to it. Many rumor mongers bet that Apple will introduce the new iPod Touch with camera and/or a cheaper Apple TV box unit.
