I've been using a company BB device that I will be handing in soon, since I'm leaving that company. I want to leave the company, but not my contacts that won't fit on the very limited SIM card. I tried backing up using BB software. Aside from being cumbersome and wired, it will not help me if I get an Android or Symbian device. Google Sync will. And it so far it's beautiful. A small, simple to use, app from Google. Download, install, run, and let it sync! A couple of minutes and all your contacts are on Gmail, and ready to by synced to your Android, BB, Symbian or WM device. And like everything Googly, it's free :). Just download the version of Google Sync specific to your handset.

I think I've finally convinced my uncle to hover in the cloud. Just a few weeks ago he was very unwilling and saw absolutely no need for the cloud and such fancy services. However, his collection of 2000 movies may have helped change his mind.

In my last post, I talked about how the loss of my internet connection rendered the cloud useless. Today I want to give you an idea of the alternative to the cloud, where a loss of internet connection does not mean total loss of data access. The alternative is a hybrid solution where your data is stored in the cloud, but with an automated and seamless local cache. This solution offers the best of both worlds; You get the benefits of cloud storage, security, and management, and you also get the benefits of a local storage such as speed and offline availability.

For the last few weeks, I've been suffering from either complete loss of net connection, or a very slow connection(64Kbs). Yes 64 Kilo bits, not bytes, per second. I wonder which is worse, complete loss or the slow net? I also wonder how life in the cloud can exist with such connectivity. Well, it can't.
