Google's Word Definitions

Google is just awesome for not only just searching on web, but for many other things too. And one of thing that I like most is getting the definition of any word, Google provides not only the meaning but also other information like the study of the origin of words and the way in which their meanings have changed throughout history, in other words the origin of a word and the historical development of its meaning.

So if you are not sure what that "word" means? You can use Google's Define syntax to find out. Simply type in the word define: word (substitute your own word) and you'll instantly be taken to a page of definitions, along with related topics and possible meanings.

Google also provides synonyms, examples of use, translation options, and even usage history. Elsewhere, you can also use voice search, too, making use of Google's pretty impressive text-to-speech tech. So I consider Google as the best online dictionary and this feature has made me to use Google much more than ever in the past.

List Of Best Cloud Storage Options

Cloud computing has completely changed our digital life. We are now able to access our personal data from anywhere and on any device.

First of all a quick description for those who don't know anything about cloud Storage. Cloud storage is a type of networked storage, in which the storage of files (files can be of any type, for example music, video, documents, etc.) is online. So it is possible to access any of your these files from any part of the globe. You just need to remember your user id and password of your account.

Following is the list of some of the best Cloud storage providers:

1) Google Drive:

Google Drive is one of the best cloud storage provider. Google Drive was launched in April 2012. Earlier Google used to provide online applications "Google Docs". And now Google Drive is home of Google Docs. So along with storing files in your Google Drive, you can also use these excellent applications including Google Documents, Spreadsheets, Presentations and many more.

2) iCloud:

Apple's iCloud is also a good option to store your files online. It was launched in October 2011. It has more than 3 billion users (as on June 2013). It has replaced Apple's MobileMe service. iCloud is popular for it's data sync services for email, calendar, contacts, reminders, bookmarks, notes and many more. iCloud can sync data of iOS based devices and this can be done wirelessly.

3) DropBox:

DropBox is a Cloud Storage service provided by DropBox, Inc. It allows user file synchronization of files between user's device (computer / laptop / notebook / mobile ) and online server. DropBox allow users to create a folder on their device and then it automatically keeps this folder in sync. DropBox was founded by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi in the year 2007.

4) Box:

Initially, Box was popularly known as It provides 5 GB of free storage for personal users. And its mobile versions are available on Android, iOS, Windows, WebOS, BlackBerry. It provides space to store files, and also to collaboratively work on these files. It allows 3rd party apps integration like Google apps, NetSuite and many more.

Comparing Google Drive, Box and Dropbox:

If we compare all of them, then my personal favorite is Google Drive and DropBox. I am used to work with Google Drive and I like working on Google Spreadsheets, Documents, Presentations and Google Sites. Integrating all these apps with one and another is fun to work. But if you are an Apple fan then I am sure you would go for iCloud. So, I would suggest you to try each one of these to know their performance and other utilities provided by them.

Mozilla Launched Firefox OS

Mozilla launched mobile operating system, Firefox OS. It is going to be a web based operating system. Initially Mozilla wants to target first time users of any smart phone.

Initially Firefox OS would be seen on smartphones manufactured by Alcatel and ZTE. As of now it is launched in Europe and soon it will be available for the rest of the world.

Mozilla has invested several years in developing Firefox OS. It was a big challenge for Mozilla to step in this field. It would be tough for Mozilla to compete with companies like Google and Apple which are dominating the market with their mobile OS Android and iOS respectively.

Jay Sullivan, Mozilla Chief Operating Officer, in a press release was quoted saying: “The launch of Firefox OS marks an incredibly exciting time for the Web. Firefox OS powers the first smartphones built entirely on Web technologies and will stimulate an inspiring new wave of innovation for the Web, We are proud to deliver an experience for first time smartphone users that will delight them and really put the power of the Web in people’s hands.”

It would be great for users to have one more company and too Mozilla entering this emerging business of Mobile OS. It is surely going to increase the competition which will benefit the users, as more great apps would be invented and developed.
