Microsoft and Google are making it super easy for you to get some extra cloud storage. All while Lenovo launches another device with amazing battery life.
It’s not exactly hard to get free cloud storage, but most service providers usually ask you to go through some hoops before you get the goodies. Microsoft is now making it super easy for you to get a whopping 100 GB of cloud storage for 2 years.
All you have to do is sign up for Bing Rewards. There’s even an option to claim the 100 free GB if you have already signed up. It’s as simple as pie! And for those of you not familiar with Bing Rewards, it’s a program in which you earn points for searching on Bing or MSN. You can then redeem these points.
The offer ends on February 28th, so hurry!
Opinion: Not really a bad deal here. Especially for those of you who already use Bing. And even if you don’t, you don’t have to. You can simply sign up and keep using Google. I would advice that you give Bing a try, though. Some of you may actually love it.
Is your Google account secure? Google is offering a neat way to check with the simple Security Checkup tool. Google knows security may not be enough of an incentive for you to use it, though. This is why they have decided to give 2 GB of Drive cloud storage to anyone who uses it by February 17th.
Here’s what it does:
- Ensures your account recovery info is current.
- Lets you review recent sign-in activity.
- Confirms apps and devices that access your account.
Opinion: It would probably help to do this security checkup, anyways. Might as well do it. I just did, and now I am 2 GB richer.
If what you want is battery life, you need to look no further. Well, if you are in China, that is. Lenovo has just launched the P70 in said country, and it comes packed with a stunning 4000 mAh battery. This is enough juice to last you for days. In fact, Lenovo does state it can stay alive for up to 46 days on standby.
Other specs include a 5-inch 720p display, a 1.5 GHz quad-core Mediatek processor, 1 GB og RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear-facing camera and a 5 MP front-facing shooter. Really not a bad device for 1399 Yuan, which is equivalent to about $224 USD.
Opinion: Many of you know how much I treasure battery life, so it should be no surprise that I am a bit interested in this phone. Are you?
