Yahoo mail once being the most popular mailing service now stands at the ground when it comes to comparing with features and services. To be honest Gmail and Outlook are far ahead. We have seen few improvements at Yahoo Inc. after Marissa Mayer joined the company as CEO. Last year Yahoo! mail got a fresh new look along with improved Android and iOS applications and even the homepage was revamped. If you guys know that before 2nd April 2013 Yahoo! mail was not providing any cloud servies alike Gmail’s Drive or Outlook’s SkyDrive. They don’t have any cloud service of their own till date. Now this year recently they have partnered with Dropbox to provide cloud services to their patrons around the globe who still survive on Yahoo!
Dropbox is a very popular cloud service that has been and is partnership with popular agents like Samsung to provide cloud storage to their customers. Earlier if anyone noticed yahoo mail or any mail service per se can only support mail attachments upto 25 megabytes. This has been the standard and is the standard till date. If anyone wants to attach anything of size beyond 25 megabytes then he needs to use cloud storage. The cloud storage not necessarily needs to be of the same provider that of mailing service. You can share the link of the file in the mail and send but it is always better if the mailing service provides this facility itself as an accessbility feature for those who don’t know about what and how to do this stuff. I am sure most of us will be familiar with Dropbox, if not just hit http://dropbox.com and register for a new account. Both the new and the old customers need to authorize their accounts with Yahoo to use this service.
So now if you have mail attachments more than 25 megabytes Yahoo Mail can serve as an option if you rely on them. This also means that the mails having attachments can be viewed online the same way as on Gmail and Outlook with the only difference that they use the attachments get redirected to their cloud services and here it will be redirected to Dropbox. This also means that this will be free up some hard disk space on our machines that were earlier occupied with small documents and no files will be hosted on Yahoo servers but you always have the option to save it to your drive in case anyone wants to. The integration with Dropbox is available globally starting 2nd April 2013 in Yahoo! Mail for Web in English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. This surely is a positive step for Yahoo to stay alive. Let’s see what all things they bring in future.
Blackberry has not really managed to garner the attention in the positive manner of the critics as well as customers when it has come to pricing frontier of the latest Blackberry 10 running device, Blackberry Z10. The Canadian company is planning to add more more devices to the BB10 running devices and the Q10 will be launched in April 2013 which will be priced pretty steeply as well. But there’s something for the ones on a budget as well.
A new device has cropped up which will be running on the BB10 and will be named as R10. It will sit as a top of the line Curve device. Or else Blackberry might just introduce an all new series like the Z and Q which will be named as the R series, thus the device being named as R10. It will come with a price tag of around $400 which converts into a figure of roughly Rs.22,000 in Indian currency and will offer a similar experience as its dearer siblings.
