We recently reviewed a few popular cloud storage services in an attempt to help you choose the best one, but why should you necessarily have to choose just one ? Instead, use them all to create an organized online backup system that's completely free. The concept is pretty simple: sign up for as many free cloud storage accounts as you need and utilize each one to back up different kinds of files. For example, Dropbox offers you 2GB of free storage that you can expand to a full 16GB by referring others to the service. Because Dropbox also syncs files to your other computers and makes your files easily accessible on your mobile devices, it's a good candidate for your primary work files.

Over the past few days, you may have noticed that we've embedded a new tool known as Pearltrees in certain articles on TG Daily . For example, we added a "pearltree" in a post about WikiLeaks and accident-prone Japanese nuclear facilities , and another in an article describing the enigmatic Anonymous and their nemesis Backtrace Security . As you can see, Pearltrees embeds a significant amount of supplemental information related to a post in a way that is easy to navigate, while giving you a chance to preview content before you even click a link.

As you'd expect, that's mostly a smattering of SUVs and crossovers like the Cadillac Escalade, Buick Enclave, GMC Yukon and Chevy Avalanche, though the Impala will also get the goods, and if you live in the lap of low-end luxury, you may be able to listen to Facebook updates on your 2010 Cadillac DTS or Buick Lucerne. Find the full list of compatible vehicles at our source link.

Brilliant ideas strike people all the time. Perhaps you’ve been inspired at some point with the notion for an innovative product or process. But it takes more than just some clever firing of the brain circuits to turn an invention idea into a working, tangible product.
Getting Things Done is a time-management methodology, described in a book of the same title by productivity consultant David Allen . It is often referred to as GTD . The GTD method rests on the idea of moving planned tasks and projects out of the mind by recording them externally and then breaking them into actionable work items.
