Amazon Free 5GB Cloud Storage – Amazon Cloud Drive
 

Amazon Free 5GB Cloud Storage

https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/learnmore

Amazon is offering 5GB free cloud storage which you can manage your music and much more.

 

 

Free Amazon Cloud Online 5GB Storage Drive, 20GB Storage Drive from $0.69
Amazon has Cloud Online 5GB Storage Drive for Free. Please carefully read full term & conditions for more info and privacy use.
Amazon also offers 20GB of Space for free with MP3 Album purchase.

Install the latest Amazon MP3 app to stream music from your cloud account. Android only (so far?)

QR attached

File upload size is limited to 2GB per file.

Buying an album gets you 20GB immediately (only for the next 12 months, if you already have 20GB, $20 credit toward any future Amazon Cloud Drive plan fees you may incur at the time your plan renews or at the time you upgrade your plan.)

Amazon Cloud Drive provides customers with reliable, secure server storage. Each file is stored within Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3); the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites.

Access to your Cloud Drive is controlled through your Amazon.com user ID and password. All communications are encrypted using HTTPS, so that your data can pass securely over the Internet.

Do I need to make a purchase to use Cloud Drive?

No, if you have an Amazon account, you have access to 5 GB of free online storage on Amazon Cloud Drive. If you purchase an album from the Amazon MP3 Store, you may be eligible for a free upgrade to 20 GB of Cloud Drive space for one year (this promotion is open to U.S. customers only). New Amazon MP3 purchases delivered to Cloud Drive do not count against a customer’s storage space. If you need more storage space, paid plans are available for storage up to 1,000 GB.

What kinds of files can I store on Cloud Drive?

Amazon Cloud Drive allows customers to upload their digital files: music, photos, videos, documents, and more can be stored securely and available via web browser on any computer. New Amazon MP3 purchases delivered to Cloud Drive do not count against a customer’s storage space.

Do my Amazon MP3 Purchases count against my storage quota?

Any Amazon MP3 purchases that you elect to store on your Cloud Drive at the time of purchase do not count against your storage quota. You can see all the MP3 tracks that are not counted against your storage quota in the Your Amazon MP3 Purchases list.

Previous Amazon MP3 purchases that you manually upload to your Cloud Drive are counted against your storage quota.

Where is Amazon Cloud Drive available?

The 5 GB free storage plan is available to all Amazon.com customers, however further upgrades to the storage plan are currently unavailable in the following countries:

Austria Belgium Bulgaria Cyprus Czech Republic Denmark Estonia Finland France Germany Greece Hungary Ireland Italy Latvia Lithuania Luxembourg Malta Netherlands Poland Portugal Romania Slovakia Slovenia Spain Sweden United Kingdom

*Audio streaming is done through original bitrate (not resampled).

*Video streaming not available at this time.

*SmugMug, Zmanda Cloud Backup, Ubuntu One, Tumblr, SugarSync and Dropbox use Amazon’s S3 storage service. – So quit with how this kills Dropbox please. Dropbox/SugarSync are mature front-ends to Amazon’s service. Amazon’s S3 web upload is worse than FTP. It’s really only useful for a personal music collection. They do not provide public URLs unless you setup a faux account to allow friends to log in, but if too many IP addresses logged in, it would be quick to trigger alerts on Amazon’s end. Google Docs offers 1GB. Dropbox offers 2GB. SugarSync offers 5GB.

*Amazon storage offers one upload client for music (only mp3 and mp4a files supported): “Amazon MP3 Uploader” (https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/cus…=200593730)

*Android users can stream music in Cloud Drive via Amazon MP3 Store app

NO sync tools currently. This will probably change in the future, but for now, you must upload individually.

Event Preview

Our program will explore how entrepreneurs can interact with utilities, government and the private sector to promote innovative ideas to cut traffic congestion, emissions and transportation. Entrepreneurial opportunities exist in many spaces, including extended range electric vehicles, charging technologies, “Smart Grid” interfaces, “first mile/last-mile” vehicles (electric bikes, scooters, or shared transportation) and software to manage the devices at home and on the road.

Come to this Enterprise Forum to meet representatives from all these sectors – business, local government, and academia – to brainstorm how to really change the world, one less parking spot at a time. Public-sector foresight can create alluring opportunities for the private sector entrepreneur. Getting in touch with the right people and being creative can help lead you to many opportunities.

DRUCKER BUSINESS FORUMS – Global CEO of Deloitte, James Quigley on Thursday, March 31, 2011
 

DRUCKER BUSINESS FORUMS


— Global CEO of Deloitte, James Quigley on Thursday, March 31, 2011< As One: Individual Action, Collective Power 

 

 

James Quigley, Global CEO of Deloitte

in conversation with Julia Kirby Editor-at-Large, Harvard Business Review


Thursday, March 31, 2011

Breakfast: 7:45-8:30am

Forum: 8:30-9:30am (followed by book signing)

Crawford Family Forum at KPCC

474 South Raymond Avenue

Pasadena, CA 91105

JAMES QUIGLEY is Global CEO of Deloitte, which through its member firms provide audit, tax, consulting, and financial advisory services to public and private clients in 150 countries. Prior to his current role, he was the CEO of Deloitte LLP in the United States. Throughout his 36 years with the organization, he has taken on a number of leadership roles and built a distinguished track record of service to many multinational clients.

Quigley is actively engaged in a number of international business organizations and committees, each working to help shape the policies for a successful and sustainable global economy. He is U.S. co-chairman of the Trans Atlantic Business Dialogue, and a member of the board of trustees of the U.S. Council for International Business and the German Marshall Fund of the United States. He is also a member of the Council on Competitiveness and the Shanghai International Financial Advisory Council. He has also served on the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Advisory Committee on Improvements to Financial Reporting.

He is regularly asked to share his perspective on global business trends and potential challenges at events such as the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the annual Boao Forum for Asia, and the annual German Marshall Fund Brussels Forum. He is involved in various business and community groups in the United States, including Japan Society and The Economic Club of New York. His memberships include the Business Roundtable and the National Advisory Committee–Brigham Young University.

As One. The world is as much about cooperation as it is about conflict; as much about collaboration as competition. Yet our knowledge of collective behavior is still relatively slim. Leaders who have been trained in the command-and-control mode of management are realizing that it often fails to truly engage people; in response, management thinkers have proclaimed the advent of a new, participatory model. But why should there be only two modes of collective behavior? For the past two years Deloitte has invested in a major global initiative, the As One project, to study effective collaborations. The project has discovered that there are many modes of ‘As One behavior’ and that all are effective in certain contexts. “As One” defines eight archetypes of leaders and followers. Taking more than 60 cases of successful collective behavior, the authors define the characteristics for each model and show how you can apply them to your organization. “As One” will show you a new way to lead, and to get your team working to reach all your goals. Imagine what we could accomplish if we could unlock the power of “As One” on a global scale.

JULIA KIRBY is Editor at Large, Harvard Business Review.  She has been with Harvard Business Review for over a decade and in that time worked with hundreds of expert authors to bring their ideas to the magazine’s managerial audience. Currently, she is also at work on a book (with Chris Meyer) on how capitalism will change as the center of gravity of global commerce shifts to the emerging economies. Prior to HBR, Julia worked in the management consulting industry, helping to produce and communicate research-based insights on such topics as reengineering, knowledge management, and the business applications of complexity science.

The Drucker Business Forum is produced by The Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management at Claremont Graduate University. The series is co-presented by KPCC.

As One
The world is as much about cooperation as it is about conflict; as much about collaboration as competition. Yet our knowledge of collective behavior is still relatively slim. Leaders who have been trained in the command-and-control mode of management are realizing that it often fails to truly engage people; in response, management thinkers have proclaimed the advent of a new, participatory model. But why should there be only two modes of collective behavior? For the past two years Deloitte has invested in a major global initiative, the As One project, to study effective collaborations. The project has discovered that there are many modes of ‘As One behavior’ and that all are effective in certain contexts. “As One” defines eight archetypes of leaders and followers. Taking more than 60 cases of successful collective behavior, the authors define the characteristics for each model and show how you can apply them to your organization. “As One” will show you a new way to lead, and to get your team working to reach all your goals. Imagine what we could accomplish if we could unlock the power of “As One” on a global scale.

    Where to buy an Apple iPad 2
     

    There’s been a run on the Apple iPad 2 in the past weeks, at the Apple store in Pasadena lines of people are waiting before the store opens, actually hours before it opens in hopes to pick up an iPad and turn around and sell it for a profit on ebay or craigslist.

    This perfectly legal, until the supplies from Apple increase and then most people can buy one through regular channels. The problem right now is that suppliers of parts for the iPad 2 are having trouble with certain parts due to the earthquake in Japan. It could be months before we see the clear up.

    There are a few places you can pickup the iPad 2:

    JR

    B&H

    abt.com $499.00

    B&M Stores

    AAFES

    Macmall: 32 GB Ipad 2 from Macmall in Torrance, CA. They still have some 32 GB and 64 GB Wi-Fi IPad 2s left in stock
