8GB not enough? Want 50GB?

October 15th, 2011 No comments

Dropbox is one of my favorite tools to manage shared stuff – and I was happy with 8GB for free… 2GB with the Basic Account type and 6GB when promoting dropbox to friends. Currently I own 5.25GB there.

But these days there came BOX.NET to my recognition – they through 50GB to you for free!

How to get it? Really easy going – just download and install the iOS App here and create a free account within the next 48 days.

MacBook Pro Battery fun

October 6th, 2011 No comments

MBP 15" batterySince a couple of months I was now struggling around with my MBP Battery – sometimes it showed me to get it serviced. Mostly after re-calibrating it then showed up ok… but now since two weeks I saw it dramatically underperforming. So after 1 1/2 hour it now went to sleep – the battery indicator showed up 40% left.

So after all I decided now to get a new one – and found it at amazon for only 49€. Nice price and immediately purchased 🙂

Today I’ll got it and now i’m charging the new one. Currently it shows 94% capacity and 8 full charging-laps… let’s see how the new battery performs over the next view days. Hopefully better than the old one…

BTW: a battery (copy, not original) for my old Vaio showed up more expensive than the Apple one (a original one) – more than twice the price as for the Apple battery.
