Synctoy iconAs you may know, I created my own private cloud / icloud – miCloud. I personally prefer to host my data on my own. In conjunction with my iPhone and iPad I really love the app File Explorer with an FTP access to my private iCloud and SkyDrive, Dropbox, Box.net and Google Drive connection. So I transferred all my data from the PC (Windows 7 Home Premium) to my private iCloud. But on the one hand I want to have direct access on my PC, on the other hand I want to backup my data.

miApple.me icon big 1Today I’ll give you an updated survey about my personally owned Apple products. There were some significant changes… 😉

First, on September 23, I switch from my iPhone 4 (32 GB) to a new iPhone 4S (64 GB). The speed improvement is really significant, especially if you use apps like iPhoto. Further more, I wanted to see how “Siri” works. But after testing for a while I’ve got the opinion that you can only use it if you are alone in a room because this will irritate other people if you are speaking, but not with them… 😉
