Dropbox und TrueCrypt Einige von euch nutzen Dropbox – und sicherlich auch TrueCrypt, oder? Beide Programme gibt es für Windows portabel (Portable TrueCrypt / Portable Dropbox). Sowohl Dropbox als auch TrueCrypt kann man unter Windows, Linux und Mac OS X nutzen. Vorhin habe ich ein wenig rumexperimentiert. Ich führte einen kleinen Testlauf durch: ich erstellte in meiner Dropbox (die ja lokal als auch online in der Cloud vorhanden ist) einen verschlüsselten Container. Nun habe ich TrueCrypt gesagt, dass er in Zukunft nicht den Zeitstempel ändern soll: Diese Einstellungsmöglichkeit findet ihr unter Mac OS X in den Einstellungen im Security-Tab. Jetzt wurde nicht der komplette Container synchronisiert – sondern tatsächlich nur die Dateien, die innerhalb des Containers geändert wurden. Wie es nun funktioniert, dass die Dropbox erkennt, dass sich neue und / oder veränderte Daten im Container befinden – keine Ahnung. Ihr könnt nun also gefahrlos Daten online in der Cloud speichern.

news aggregation Traffic on Flipboard, which turns your social and media feeds into a sleek digital magazine, has increased 300 percent since early March, to between 8 and 9 million flips, CEO Mike McCue told Liz Gannes of AllThingsD. A flip on the touchscreen app is roughly equivalent to a page view. [Read: Flipboard--A Great Apple iPad App Gets Better] The social news app also doubled its user base in two months, and I was one of them. For those of us trying to make a living in the new media landscape, Flipboard gives a preview of what our work might look like in a few years: Digital, clickable, multimedia, interactive, instantly updated, streamlined and personalized. The app picks up Facebook, Twitter, Google Reader, Flickr and other social media feeds and arranges them into a magazine-like layout. Users can add curated topical feeds and Flipboard versions of a growing stable of publications, ranging from Lonely Planet to Business Insider. It bypasses advertising, which scares me as a writer.

BoxCryptor: On-the-fly-Verschlüsselung für Dropbox Ich hatte seinerzeit ja mal beschrieben, wie man seine Inhalte der Dropbox mit TrueCrypt verschlüsselt. Eigentlich super einfach (Dropbox und TrueCrypt – verschlüsselte Daten in der Cloud). Wer TrueCrypt nicht nutzen möchte, aber doch einen verschlüsselten Ordner in der Dropbox haben möchte, der sollte sich BoxCryptor anschauen. Die Software sorgt für eine On-the-fly-Verschlüsselung. Arbeitsweise: Software installieren, Passwort und zu verschüsselnden Dropbox-Ordner wählen, abschließend den Laufwerksbuchstaben wählen. Kleines Beispiel gefällig? Bild und Text sind im BoxCryptor-Laufwerk lesbar: Beim direkten Zugriff ohne Entschlüsselung sieht das Ganze dann so aus: Vorteil: keine Container, keine Größenbeschränkung, Ver- und Entschlüsselung on-the-fly.
