Get 5GB of free cloud-sync storage from SugarSync

One of the Web's best folder-sync and -sharing services just made an offer you shouldn't refuse: free 5GB accounts.

Wouldn't it be cool if you had a "magic" folder on your PC, one that automatically synced its contents with the Web, your other PCs, your cell phone, and other devices?

You may think I'm referring to Dropbox, a service that offers exactly those capabilities. It's one of my favorites, its freebie accounts are limited to 2GB of online storage.

SugarSync will see that 2GB and raise it 3GB (for a total of...wait, I'm not good at math...okay, got it...5GB). That's right: anyone can sign up for a free SugarSync account and get 5GB of cloud-storage goodness.

After getting started, just choose the folders you want to sync. Everything gets copied to your secure account, which you can access from just about any Web browser (and from apps for Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, and pretty much every other mobile platform).

In other words, everything you choose to sync becomes accessible from just about everywhere. What's more, SugarSync recently introduced a multi-user sync feature that's sure to appeal to the business crowd.

I recommend using SugarSync as a kind of instantaneous, set-it-and-forget-it backup system: just save mission-critical documents to one of your "magic" folders and presto, they're archived to the cloud. But that's just one of many applications.

So, what say you, Dropbox? Gonna "call" SugarSync's 5GB?

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
