Another day, another cloud storage service appears on my radar. I already have Dropbox, iCloud, Google Drive and SkyDrive services and recently I’ve added yet another, except this one, is probably the best I’ve used so far.
‘Copy’ is a service available for Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android that gives you 15GB of free storage, plus for every friend referral you make, you get a bonus 5GB! That is much more generous than many other cloud services, although it does leave you wondering how the company will make any money.
Using Copy is very similar to Dropbox. It will install a folder on your computer that will copy anything you put in there, into your cloud storage. Using the mobile apps makes it very easy to share files with people and you can browse by file type easily too.
Unlike some of the other cloud storage services I’ve signed up to, I will more likely use this one as the free space given is so generous.
If you’d like to sign up, use this link. You’ll get a bonus 5GB space taking your free amount to 20GB!
I recently blogged comparing digital distribution companies CD Baby and Zimbalam. CD Baby came out on top for me, mainly because they don’t charge annual fee and also because they can help distribute physical copies of your music.
I recently received an e-mail from CD Baby informing me that the price of submitting an album is increasing from $39 to $49. It’s a relatively small increase but I do have some reservations about it.
Much in the spirit of MySpace’s incredible lack of pace in upgrading their service to cope with the demands of it’s users, they have finally upgraded their service for music profiles. With a ridiculous inability to keep up with other music profile websites, MySpace’s previous insistence on having to paste CSS code to customise the look of your profile was irritating at best. This is especially so when the ‘free’ MySpace editors that are all over the internet put their own advertisements in the code they give you. So it was to my delight having logged into MySpace for the first time in months to see that it appears to be changing.
