Summary Microsoft recently rolled-out an upgrade to free OneDrive accounts, but is only now sending out emails to its users to notify them of it. Previously, the company gave any new sign-up 7GB of storage for free; that's now been bumped to 15GB, to match Google with its Drive service. Both are a vast improvement over Dropbox, which offers a mere 2GB of free storage to its users, requiring referrals to increase it to a maximum of 18GB.
Summary Microsoft on Tuesday rolled out a major update to its Apple-centric OneNote products, adding new features like access to notes stored in OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online, inserting files and note reorganization and sharing. With OneNote version 2.3 for for iOS and version 15.2 for Mac , users now have greater control over note creation, organization and access.
Summary It's that time of the month when Piriform issues its regular CCleaner update for Windows PCs, and undeterred by the recent CCleaner for Mac 1.08 release, the company has shipped CCleaner 4.16 and CCleaner Portable 4.16 right on schedule. The new release adds support for a number of new programs, improves its Firefox and Chrome cleaning tools and adds a new Repair option to the uninstaller should it be needed. The update opens with the promise of improved cleaning and start-up management for the latest version (36) of Chrome, plus improved browser cache cleaning in Firefox.
Summary The move follows by two weeks a similar increase in OneDrive for Business , the storage center offered to commercial customers, either as part of their subscriptions to the "rent-not-own" Office 365, or as a stand-alone service for $2.50 per user per month during a promotion through September. Those price cuts have not yet been implemented. Several days after Microsoft told customers of the OneDrive storage space boosts, Google responded by announcing it would give customers of its Google Apps for Business an unlimited amount of storage for an additional $5 per month per user.
