The Great Space Race by Dropbox


If you use Dropbox you probably have had a problem with reaching your storage limit at least once. Now, if you are a college student you can get up to 25GB of additional space that will be yours for 2 years without having to pay anything. The promotion named The Great Space Race will run for the next eight weeks and in order to qualify for the extra space there are few requirements that users have to meet. Each participant must be actively enrolled in a higher education institute, college, university, or the equivalent of a university, be over 14 years old, have an active e-mail address from an educational institution and have access to Dropbox obviously. Also important to note is that “Participants must be a part of a Higher Education Institution that has at least twenty-five Participants who signed up for the Program”

Super cheap Android based tablets are getting their new version and now it's even cheaper, well only by $5, but when you get a tablet for $35 who the hell cares. You are probably already opening eBay and searching for it, but hold on a second. It's only available in India, and their government started this project to provide their students a cheap device to help them with studies. The tablet is manufactured in the UK, by the company DataWind and it should be arriving in India next month.

learnwithportalsWhen the game Portal first hit I was stunned at its brilliance. It was a very complicated concept stuck into a humorous and simple format. It had winning elements borrowed from some of my favorite games of all times (the constantly insulting GLaDOS was the SHODAN Computer from System Shock) and even the run down environment felt very familiar (because it was just like the inside of the Original HalfLife). Put simply, the game built on past experiences in a new and surprisingly fun way.

17We have always been a supporter of certain Internet freedoms as well as individual privacy (no surprise there huh). Bills like PIPA and SOPA showed us a glaring issue with the existing level of knowledge currently held by the people that make our laws (and not just in the US). This is not a big shocker to most people either. It is fairly common knowledge that our law makers get into office based on little more than a popularity contest that is held every few years. Once in office they are like the gullible kid in school that gets talked into things, by the “cool kids”, but in this case the cool kids are lobbyists and are not looking for a laugh they are looking to improve their control and profit.
