Google Drive is Here!

As we reported last month (Google Drive and the Race for your Data ) Google was developed their cloud storage service.

Well, It’s here…kinda! Google are in the process of dividing up their storage in the cloud space and dishing it out 5Gb’s at a time!

To grab your share, you obviously need a Google account. You then pop on over to this link —> Here and then eagerly await.

Google have under-cut the competition on increased storage with 25Gb available for only $2.50 p/m. Not bad really.

Check out their nifty video below that shows all the jazzy features, as jazzy as cloud storage can get!

Stay Trendy with Color Forecast

So you think your fashionable do you? Your up to date on your trends right? Think Again!

We came across Color Forecast this week, an interesting idea if I may say.

How Does It Work?

Color Forecast will tell you, to the second, what colour is fashionable.

This has been done by sticking some pretty high tech cameras in some of Europes fashion hotspots. Milan, Paris and eh… Antwerp? These cameras scour the streets, picking up moving objects and analyzing their colour information. There is plenty of technical stuff running in the background, but the site has a simple and pretty interface that displays real time video from the cities.

There is plenty of room for growth for this platform. Fashion labels will no doubt be clamoring for some tie-in functions. And of course, If your trendy you will want to tell your friends on Facebook or Twitter so Social Media can tie nicely in here too.

So in the not so far future, your phone or tablet will be telling you what to wear in the morning. Freaky.

Check the video below for a low-down on Color Forecast.

YouTube 3D – Its Here!

YouTube formally rolled out their 3D service last week and hundreds of thousands of videos have sprung up on the site.

I for one have always been skeptical of 3D, never fully enjoyed content in the format. I find it to be a gimmick and takes away from the movies experience.

Why have Google gone to great lengths to add this to the service? My initial thought is, Why not?

Tech Blog, Unorthodoxx Digital, YouTube 3D

Google offering this content will initially attract viewers in to see what the fuss is (I know your opening a new tab as you read). More viewers means more ad revenue.

Also the movie industry has pumped millions of dollars into 3D, so Google would hope their platform could potentially utilized for future content delivery.

YouTube is a prime location for movie trailers, teasers and extra content. Giving studios the option to offer this in 3D could be a huge selling point for YouTube 3D.

Television manufacturers will also be putting some eggs into the YouTube 3d baskets. Many smart tv’s are incorporating social media into their interface. There are apps for Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

With many new smart tv’s being 3D capable, allowing the user to access more content that just paid for movies is a big draw.

We will have to give it time to see if it takes off but a lot of money is riding on its success. Check out the video below to see 3D in action.
