The tech world has been obsessed with backup systems since the inception of the internet. With the digital age upon us, the stress of having backed up software, data, files of all types and more is more crucial than ever.

That’s where services like Carbonite come into play, and there are several benefits that come through when you go forward within this application.The Need For Protection

It’s for that simple reason that the cloud now exists to take on automatic backups and relay information faster than ever. You can set your back up, have it sync your information and then store it on a cloud storage system for you to use if ever you need it. Without this, you will lose your data, it’s just a matter of time.Enter Carbonite

So many people complained about Windows from the upgrades after Windows XP to the new changeover in Windows 8, that the company went back the drawing board to create a whole new experience. This time around, they changed things up, and kept with their modern approach with a jump over the 9th edition, going with the moniker of Windows 10 instead. This is push forward in the evolution of the operating system, but with a lot of familiar cross over that you may expect from the brand.Personal Assistance and Mobile Integration
Much like Apple has a personal assistant, Microsoft has now introduced theirs, and it’s beyond the scope of what you may think. It syncs everything, helps you with tasks, creates notes, and much more. Cortana is sleek, easy to use, and can help you become far more productive than ever. Integration with your mobile phone is now in place, especially if you have the Windows phone, and are using the two to sync up your life in the right areas. One operating system, multiple devices including Xbox.The Start Icon
For whatever reason, people weren’t able to figure out Windows 8’s schematics, and begged for a start icon. Well, the company has obliged and has gone back to what people using Windows before the 8 jump were used to. There’s a start button, there’s a taskbar, and there are some tiles if you want to use them. Don’t like tiles? You could completely revert to an experience within Windows that harkens to the past you’re familiar with. No matter where you came along to use the system, you’ll have an opportunity to use options from the past as to your liking.Faster Processing
This operating system is lightweight, snappy, and can come free if you already have Windows 8 or before. The company is giving it away and offering deep discounts if you already have an existing build. However, you will find that it will be priced to sell for business and personal computers sooner than later. At the present, the buzz surrounding the operating system upgrade are good, and will most likely continue to sound favorable as tech insiders are starting to see more and more updates, news and media concerning this release of the next big thing from Microsoft.
Microsoft Windows 10 will definitely be a good step in the right direction, as Windows 8 is not getting the same reaction as previous incarnations. But then again, it’s better than the Windows 7 and ME backlash that the company received.
Millions of people in Asian have been displaced or confronted with catastrophic acts of Mother Nature. Looking into the history of weather issues in the area, you’ll see that large waves, hurricanes, and tsunamis are not uncommon. While they may seem far and away for most people, Asian countries know the pain of dealing with these things all too well. It’s for that reason that one company has created an interesting solution to survive such a problem, and it’s starting to take off. A startup named Mukilteo is starting to sell what very well may change the way people deal with survival and brushes with the ocean, and is found with a pod.The Survival Pod
The survival pod is a round item that allows two individuals to step in and brace themselves for what is to come. In the case of rising water, the pods are equipped to move forward with the ocean and survive impacts, and more. They are rooted to the ground and carry a long chain so when water starts to create havoc for individuals, the pods float to the top safely. They are creatively shaped, can withstand shock, and a great deal of impact, without having to worry about the outside world.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about this is that each option comes with an hour of oxygen for each individual that will step into the balls.Taking Off In Sales
At press time, there were already 10 of these sold, and there is far more interest coming as people see this survival element as important. The tsunami zone that people have in Japan and nearby countries can definitely benefit from having one of these in place. The cost right now is $20,000. However, the cost of staying alive during any natural disaster like that of a giant wave, can definitely be offset with this investment. Not everyone is going to be able to afford one of these, but there are interested parties that are looking into them for larger scale issues such as hospital evacuations and more.
This may be early on, but the CEO of Mukilteo has already started envisioning a capsule that can carry 10 people, making this one of the latest and greatest innovations coming out of Japan. As far as survivalists are concerned, this is truly an interesting option for those that could very well face a tsunami or other natural disaster that causes the waters to rise. With this in place, displacement, and certain death may very well be avoided.
As 2014 comes to a close, looking back at the digital trends can illuminate what is to come. Most people wait for the turn of the New Year to fully look back, but if you start to take a look at the things that made up the year up to this date, you will realize that the trends are already showcased through digital means across the board. With that in mind, consider the following trends that will definitely make an impact on the next year as well. There are a lot of things to look through, but the following seemed to make a serious impact.The Power of Social Media
Social media continued to flow through a variety of arenas online. However, you are going to find that the trends of note in regards to this solution is a matter of creating narrower niches. Instead of a blanket of marketing, many companies decided to drive through very specific demographics. This is evidenced through the ad networks in social sites that now ask advertisers to consider age, geography, browser, interests, and many other keywords. Not only that, many sub-sites and networks started to jump into the arena, although many have already died down in interest, i.e.; Ello.Active Tech
More and more individuals have invested in wearable devices to monitor their health, push them into fitness and much more. But it wasn't just active elements, some people jumped into the trends of wearable cameras, high definition lenses, and much more. Wearable devices for fitness is one thing, but millions clamored for new “watches” that connected smartphones to the wrist. In 2015, the mighty “Apple” is slated to come out with one of these, and tech analysts are already talking about the influence of what some see as a “wearable” tech revolution.Personalized Internet Marketing
