TGIF – week 50

Another week has passed. So here are again some news that might interest you.

OneDrive and how to keep your free 15 Gb of space

Not long time ago Microsoft cancled their unlimited storage space in OneDrive. And if you had already gained the 15 Gb free storage space it was reduced back to 5 Gb. But now an announcement from Microsoft says

You’re an important part of what we do, and we want to make sure you know that. That’s why we’re making it possible for you to keep your base storage quota and camera roll bonus, even after the changes roll out.

Click below and your account will not be affected when the amount of free storage changes from 15 GB to 5 GB and the +15 GB camera roll bonus is discontinued

So simply click this link and follow the instructions to keep your storage.

Firefox OS for smartphones has come to an end

So if you by any chance have a smartphone with Firefox OS, keep it, treasure it and preserve it. It will be part of history. In Mozilla’s Ari Jaaksi’s own words

Firefox OS proved the flexibility of the Web, scaling from low-end smartphones all the way up to HD TVs. However, we weren’t able to offer the best user experience possible and so we will stop offering Firefox OS smartphones through carrier channels.

Ari is Mozilla’s SVP on Connected Devices and a former Nokia executive.

Buy a Windows phone 🙂

All new UWP apps

I will from now on update you weekly here on TGIF about the Windows universal apps I know and are worth mentionig. So these work on Windows 10 PC/tablet and on Windows phones.

  • Uber – everyone knows them
  • Aeries – Twitter client
  • Fenice – another Twitter client
  • TodoNotes – powerful note app
  • Figure – make music in seconds
  • TuneIn – largest collection of radio stations

Universal Windows Platform gaining momentum

Read the article here and I quite agree with them.

HP to exit the low-cost tablet market

You can read it all about here. I think it is a great move from HP and to concentrate more on high-cost and more profitable tablets/hybrids. There are x-amount of Chinese low-cost Android tablets on the market, it is stupid to compete with them.

Weekly funny

Had to share this. Adele’s Hello is the top #1 song at the moment and you cannot escape hearing it every 20 minutes in almost every radio station. But this is a “duo” with our F1 driver Kimi Räikkönen, so it is refreshing to hear Hello in a bit shorter and hilarious version. Enjoy.
