| Sony, Panasonic develop 300GB to 1TB 'Archival Disc' for 50 year-plus storage |
Mar 10, 2014 - 1:11 PM - by TechSocial |
Sony and Panasonic have developed a next-generation optical disc for enterprise storage with an initial capacity of 300GB. Dubbed the Archival Disc, it will have the same dimensions as current Blu-ray discs and will also be readable for at least 50 years. |
The disc will have three layers per side. It’s expected to hit the market in 2015, with the initial capacity later expanded to 500GB and then 1TB.
The higher capacities will be achieved through signal-processing technologies including multi-level recording technology, the companies said.
Sony and Panasonic are pushing the optical discs for cloud service companies and archival services amid the explosion in online data. The companies will market the discs separately under their brands.
“As a type of archival media, optical discs have numerous advantages over current mainstream HDD and tape media, such as their ability to be stored for a long time while still maintaining readability,” a Panasonic spokesman said. “We hope to develop demand for archives that use optical discs.”

| Loaded and locked: 3 seriously secure cloud storage services |
Mar 09, 2014 - 7:36 PM - by TechSocial |
Cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, and SugarSync are convenient, efficient—and notoriously insecure. Files are rarely encrypted, data transfer is typically not protected, and companies are usually able to access your files (even if they state they won’t, they may be legally compelled to do so). |
Documents such as business plans or other sensitive files (say, a copy of your birth certificate) should be protected. You can utilize a special, ultra-secure provider such as Wuala or Tresorit, or you can encrypt files yourself before uploading them to larger storage services, such as Dropbox.

| Google Adds Background Refresh to Gmail for iOS |
Mar 05, 2014 - 6:47 PM - by TechSocial |
Gmail just got a lot faster for iOS users. |
Google rolled out an update to Gmail's iOS app Wednesday that added background refresh and a simpler sign-in process.
With the update, Gmail now loads messages in the background so users can view new emails the second they get a push notification. Previously, users would have to wait for new messages load after launching the app.
"The app now fully supports background app refresh, which means your Gmail messages will be pre-fetched and synced so they’re right there when you open the app," Google said in a blog post announcing the update.
