Online cloud storage is all the buzz right now. There are countless solutions that allow you to upload and sync your files to the cloud and Box is one of them. Box allows you to store your files online and access them anywhere, anytime. With the free personal account, you get 5GB, into which you can store all kinds of files and organize them into folders.
You can also share files and folders, and you also get real-time updates when someone views, edits or comments on your file. In addition to that, you can also invite members into a share workspace and collaborate on a file. Box launched a Windows 8 app and has recently updated it. Let’s see just how good it is!
The vast majority of people upgrading will not have any issues, but there is always that stray use-case scenario that will encounter an error. In the past, Microsoft has done a great job with compatibility, and even shown that they are willing to make their OS backwards-compatible with older hardware and as much of the software as possible.
With that said, one of the biggest issues that can bite end-users is driver problems. A printer here or audio card there can wreak havoc with what you assume will be a simple upgrade.

In an event in LA, Microsoft showed off Surface, its presumptive flagship Windows 8 product that’s a full-blown tablet set to compete with models coming out of Windows OEMs. Coming in both Intel and ARM flavours, the Surface runs Windows 8 and is perhaps best used in conjunction with one of two accessories that offers the device a traditional keyboard and trackpad input.
Not only is Microsoft compete with its own licensees with the Surface, but they’re also going far into living out my personal dream for them, creating a stronger, more cohesive ecosystem that isn’t tainted by third parties.
