If you are like me and find yourself keeping copies of files everywhere then this solution could be your best option.
I have been testing this SugarSync for the past few months between my iphone, 3 x apple mac computers and my ipad.
It’s a great way to keep files, photo, music, just about anything else you can throw in a folder together synchronised. SugarSync is easy to setup and manage with the easy drag and drop you have become accustomed to with MacOS software. Check out the video below.
SugarSync offers awseome incentives for you to get others to signup, and I won’t hide the fact that if you click on the link below I get an extra 500MB! Signup is simple and there are no strings attached, no spam attacks just pure peace of mind with super easy syncs. Enjoy!
Sync files across multiple computers and devices
Automatically sync files across computers. Sync PCs, sync Macs, even sync PCs with Macs!
Works the way you do
With SugarSync, you decide which folders you want to sync and where you want to sync them. SugarSync works in the background so your most important data is always backed up and available to you – regardless of your location or the computer you are using. You can start editing a file on your office PC and finish it on your Mac at home.
Sync to the cloud for offline file access
SugarSync continuously syncs and backs up files from your computer to your secure, Personal Cloud. You can edit files on your computer while it is offline and SugarSync automatically syncs the changes the next time your computer is online. You can relax with the confidence that you are always using the most recent versions of your documents.
Sync shared folders for seamless online file sharing
Now when you collaborate with other people, your changes can be synced between your computer and theirs. When teams share project folders, changes made by one team member are automatically synced to others on the team. You can share entire folders of photos with family members, or share documents and files with your clients. Imagine the possibilities!

How much do you love your iPhone?
If you want the very best protection for your iPhone then you cannot go past Otterbox. The Otterbox Defender’s quality build and impact resistance is one of the best around.
I highly recommend these cases if you work on building sites, for recreational sports or you are just plain clumsy. I have been using iPhone cases for over a year now and my iPhone still looks brand new. The Otterbox Defender is by far the best insurance you can have on your iPhone without paying a monthly premium. I had originally purchased the Otterbox Defender to protect my iPhone from my 2 young boys (if you have children please make sure they only use the iPhone in Airplane mode). I quickly realised that the iPhone needed protection from me. I have dropped my iPhone 3GS countless times on hard surfaces, roads, concrete etc.
My first Otterbox Defender case went flying out of my hand in a quiet back street while I was riding my bike at about 30kmph one morning. I watched my iPhone bounce along the road behind me! My initial concern was, ‘not my Otterbox Defender!’ The silicon cover protected the iPhone from impact as well as keeping the cover in good condition. The Otterbox Defender cover ended up with a very small dent in the poly carbonate shell (I had to look very hard to find it). So for $45 bucks I saved a $1000 iPhone from certain destruction. 6 months later and my iPhone is in a new Otterbox Defender case and everything is cool.
Pros: Outstanding protection.
Cons: Case is large and moisture can build up between glass and case. ( the way to minimize this is to put a matt finishing cover on your iPhone then put it in the case).
Many people laughed at my case thinking it was being over protective. I just say – ‘just think how funny it will be when you drop your iPhone 4 and crack the glass’.
