Windows 8 Online ID Through Cloud Sync -LEAK

Even though Windows 8 is set to launch in 2013 or 2014, we have already seen a large number of leaks. While it is cool to see what Microsoft is working on next, all these leaks are sure to take the entire novelty aspect away from consumers. Maybe this is a secret strategy on Microsoft’s part, educating us over a span of a few years about the next Windows so we all hop on it like a German Shepard lunges at a slab of steak. If this isn’t Microsoft’s strategy, well, then they are complete newbs, which I have to leave open as a possibility given the relatively recent release of Windows Vista.

Apple Takes Another Step In Cloud Direction

Critical Security Flaw Found In Dropbox

If you’re unfamiliar with Dropbox, it is basically a tool that allows users to sync files between multiple computers and devices. To use the system, the user installs the software, points to a folder to be synchronized, and is then able to access those files among other computers or devices that he or she owns. A critical security flaw has recently been spotted that could expose users’ files to anyone and everyone on the web.

Introducing The Apple iPod, Without Wires?

According to CultofMac, Apple is working on a way to synchronize iPods and iTunes wirelessly. Steve Jobs is working hard to ensure that the next generation of Apple products will be wireless, at least for the iPod. Instead of importing music, movies, and apps manually through wires, the iPods will auto-sync with your iTunes whenever it is connected to your WiFi network. I will admit this is cool only because it makes iPods easier to use, especially for people who aren’t as computer friend as others.

Mozilla Firefox 4 For Android

Mozilla has finally released their Firefox4 build for Android, which is now available on the Android market.

Nokia says that seven of their patents have been violated in areas of multi-tasking operating systems, data synchronization, positioning, call quality, and use of Bluetooth accessories. Interestingly enough, Nokia had previously filed a claim against Apple which was found by the ITC to be…
