Setting appropriate privacy levels on multiple computers while syncing data on Dropbox can get quite complicated. Having been a Sys-admin myself for a lot of years, experience has taught me never to underestimate the chance of a privacy breach when it comes to data. Even by protecting important ‘eyes only’ information by placing it on a system that isn’t connected to the network, people tend to forget one basic fact- the system administrator is all powerful! It only makes sense therefore, to use flash drives to store important data and use it only when required. Resolving the crisis Dropbox Portable Read More >

I recently discovered an awesome application in the Cydia store called by the name iBye that allows to do the data backup of the many built-in iOS apps as well as App store installations. In addition it can also backup the Cydia apps and tweaks that you have installed on your jailbroken iPhone. Of course this is not the only solution to do a backup your data, for example you can use the iTunes built-in backup but that will not backup your Cydia apps. Then you have some other Cydia applications that can do the backup including the APT Backup Read More >

One of the most annoying problems in case you restore your iDevice using iTunes is that basically you loose everything (applications,games). Although, you can manually install the desired applications at the expense of spending some time. But what about the applications and games data that was stored in the iPhone, iPad etc. You can’t bring it back! and this is too bad. Another scenario is that you are playing some game on the iPhone say Angry Birds and you want the game progress (saved data) to be also available on your iPad.

Dropbox is one of the most popular and most intuitive cloud-based folder synchronization service that has a client available for both iOS based devices as well as Android devices. One thing that is common in terms of functionality (or a lack of) is absence of real-time (continuous) folder synchronization between the local folder and your data on the cloud compared to their their desktop counterpart. This can be quite tedious for many users of these devices to manually upload all the files to the cloud from the Dropbox client. Luckily for the Android users, I have noticed there is a Read More >

And this is for a good reason – it allows to playback virtually unlimited number of audio/video formats smoothly, and all of that without even installing a single codec! Apart from that it also supports many advanced features (streaming comes to mind). As for the iOS world this popular player was introduced first in the Apple App Store as a free download.
