I spent a couple of hours this morning shopping for “cloud” storage (storage online for my photos, documents, and music). This afternoon, I saw that Amazon launched a new service today called Amazon Cloud Drive. They’re giving us 5GB of free storage just for trying it out!
For the teacher & homeschooler, this is a nice way to save documents that you want to access from any computer connection: on your iTouch, iPhone, iPad, Droid, the library (or work) computer, or any other computer with an internet connection. That’s very convenient! It’s also a great place to store files safe from fires, theft or (sigh) broken computers. I’m still heartbroken over losing a year’s worth of photos once, so I take storage so seriously! I’m very excited to find such a great deal and wanted to share it with you.
How to Get this Freebie: Visit Amazon Cloud. You’ll receive 5GB of storage for free. Future Amazon mp3 purchases do not count toward your cloud storage allotment. More storage may be purchased starting at $20/year (that’s inexpensive, according to the research I did this morning with comparative plans).
