Ads by Google

Last week we asked you about the Apple-Samsung trial, and what you think about Apple’s glorious yet controversial win. One thing’s for sure – this is something people feel strongly about. And with over 1,000 votes, we got a nice picture of our readers’ opinion regarding this win. Let’s see what you thought.

Out of 1,034 votes in total, a full 78% think Apple’s win is ridiculous and all smartphones are similar anyway, 13% think Apple’s win is well deserved, 6.5% are not sure which side is right, and 2.5% didn’t follow the trial or don’t really care about it.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

With over 1,000 votes and nearly 80% of the votes going to the same answer, this is the most unanimous poll we’ve had in quite a while.

Cloud storage services, or online storage services, have picked up in popularity over the past few years. Today, almost everyone uses at least one service, and many use more than one to store, synchronize and backup their files. Each service offers slightly different features and abilities, but almost everyone has a go-to favorite they use the most. Which one do YOU think is best?

If your favorite service is not listed, tell us all about it in the comments. If it is, tell us what makes your favorite the best of the bunch!

    Spideroak since its open source and all data is stored in encrypted format even in their servers so not even the spideroak staff can know what we have uploaded

    I like Spideroak the most, since it provides client side encryption and not even the server staff can see what we have up there on the site.

    Most customization. Most free space delivering [Old customers got full 25GB while new can grab 7GB] is SkyDrive. No begging for free storage, they deliver safe and sound!

    I’m also among them who use more than one service
    2 Dropbox accounts,
    one from work (paid) for stuff related to that company and our costumers
    one private (free, with 24 GB) 1. Nearly all sorts of sharing with friends like “share folders”, public links and let them send photos and stuff with “Send to Dropbox” as Dropbox seems easiest for people. 2. Using “Public folder” for quick preview of html sites, also for letting other see it when I’m working on a site 3. Auto backup of WordPress installations.

    Sugarsync (free, with 40 GB) mostly for syncing between devices. Great sync and you can have the folders where you want on your computers. I do also use it for sharing files when I want be in, some sort, of control as Sugarsync provide more opportunities to set what the recipient may do.

    Google Play Music with my iTunes library – great to be able listen to my own music when I’m sitting in someone els office

    Well, as Box offered 50 GB I couldn’t resist to sign up but have not used it much and don’t see it replace my “old” services.

    By the way, those of you who use Dropbox and need more free space I do hope you have noticed you can get up to 3 GB if you auto upload photos from your camera or mobile. You dont need to upload all 3 GB at the same time and you can delete/remove the photos as soon as you got the space
