GOOGLE DRIVE

A few years ago, many storage online appeared on the web. The first one, in 2005, was Box.net, followed in 2008 by Dropbox.net, including the multi-platform synchronization.

In parallel, we also saw huge OS editors, like Apple, Microsoft, … providing their own solution as SkyDrive, iCloud, Ubuntu One.

Today, after so many years of rumors, GOOGLE DRIVE is born. It is presented basically as an upgrade of Google documents, and allows user to get, for free, up to 5Go of online disc space. User can also choose another month to month plan between those proposed: 25 Go for $ 2,49 per month, 100 Go for $4,99 per month, and up to 1To for $49.99 dollars per month.

But what distinguish this plateforme from others?

Google includes a lot of search tools, character recognition system, and a tools able to analyse the photos stored on its servers. More over, when Google Documents proposed to virtualize about 15 files directly on your browser, Google drive will allow you to open more than 30 files,also Illustrator, Photoshop, or HD video, even if you don’t have the adequat softwares on your computer.

Google Drive will also includes a lot of differents tools and useful applications: you will ba ble to synchronize your documents in order to find them really easily on your computer.

8-9 Quake Strikes Japan Triggers Tsunami

Japanese television is showing horrific pictures of a wall of water swallowing everything in its path following a massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan.

The quake has triggered a tsunami already that’s washing away cars and houses inland in the north-east of the country. Television showed cars bobbing in water alongside fishing boats.

A 10-metre tsunami warning has been extended for the coast in the region.

The tsunami warning was issued to most of the Pacific coast of the main island of Honshu, broadcaster NHK reported. People are being told to get to higher ground.

The quake was initially listed as 7.9 magnitude, then upgraded to 8.8, then 8.9 by US Geological Survey. A series of aftershocks followed including one of around 7 magnitude.

The epicentre of the quake is believed to be in the north of Japan, in the Honshu area.

The quake caused buildings to shake in the capital Tokyo, triggering at least one building fire, NHK television and witnesses reported. Around four million homes are without power in Tokyo, and several people have been buried in a landslide.

Many sections of Tohoku expressway serving northern Japan are damaged and there is a major fire at Chiba refinery near Tokyo.

The BBC is reporting it as a “mega-quake”.

Narita airport, Tokyo’s main airport, has been closed. A number of people are believed to have been injured during a graduation ceremony in Tokyo when a roof collapsed.

The public broadcaster showed black smoke billowing from a building in Odaiba, a Tokyo suburb, and bullet trains to the north of the country have been halted.

“The building shook for what seemed a long time and many people in the newsroom grabbed their helmets and some got under their desks,” Reuters correspondent Linda Sieg said.

“It was probably the worst I have felt since I came to Japan more than 20 years ago.”

The US Geological Survey verified a magnitude of 8.8 at depth of 24.3kms and located the quake 130.3kms east of Sendai, Honshu. The stock market extended its losses after the quake.

Japan’s northeast Pacific coast, called Sanriku, has suffered from quakes and tsunamis in the past and a 7.2 quake struck on Wednesday. In 1933, a magnitude 8.1 quake in the area killed more than 3,000 people. Last year fishing facilities were damaged after by a tsunami caused by a strong tremor in Chile.

There are believed to be 3500 New Zealanders in Japan, and 1600 in Tokyo.

Civil Defence in New Zealand says a tsunami is possible in New Zealand, but it is still monitoring the situation and it would be 11 hours away.

why pay when it’s free?

That is a common question when I talk to potential clients. Why in the world would anyone pay someone to operate a free service, such as Facebook and Linked In?

My response would be “Why in the world wouldn’t you?”

Let me explain. In the world of social marketing, “social” is the most important part. Followers of a Facebook Page, or Twitter or Linked In accounts, want to be entertained with fresh, witty, and relevant content. And they want it on a consistent basis.

Now, most of the business owners I know are hard working, very busy individuals. They are focused on operations, payroll, hiring, and all of the other tasks of keeping their biz afloat. This fact is what keeps them from being able to post, tweet, link or blog their way into the social marketing universe on a regular basis. And, once these marketing efforts start to slack, it’s almost too late to recover. Their virtual base has lost interest, and are now mesmerized by the whimsical posts of the competitor down the street.

Don’t be afraid to pay a small amount to handle this area for your business. It may turn out to be the cheapest, most effective, employee you hire.
