Over the past couple of decades, we, humans have brilliantly expanded our reach across different technological advancements. The history of humankind is quite evident of the fact that how being lethargic was never going to be an option for us in the near future. We notably achieved what we craved. We dreamed, worked hard and always tried to make our lives a bit easier. Gone are the days when desktop computers were useful only for calculations or creating, storing and retrieving your Word documents. Nowadays, that is something we can also do on the Internet, with far better options and cloud services accessible across a plethora of devices.
Preserve & Share your jolliest memories!
Memories are short-lived; time keeps on passing before your eyes with the pace you can never imagine and memories are always showing signs of change. Your friends and family will just have one birthday a year, your spouse will want to celebrate with you his/her first Diwali after your marriage, your baby will walk for the first time, you will go on a trip with your family, and the camera comes handy to archive and preserves those precious moments so they can be with you all the time until the end. These are the days you wish you could hold onto and with your memories you want to be recorded for the lifetime.
Personally speaking, I am always fascinated about clicking pictures, taking selfies, recording videos regularly as much as I would have enjoyed during my holiday trip. A decade ago, when camera phones were not as mainstream as they are today, people had nothing but to enjoy being around those special yet short-lived surfaces.
Availability of the Internet services not only changed the way we used to live but also changed our perception towards using those in the first place. For all these years in the name of technology, what has mattered predominantly is our data -- the piece of information that we keep on creating, storing and never willing to lose. The human race has constantly attempted to discover avenues to store data.
As the demand for storage increases, availability and accessibility of services increase naturally. Since desktop computers came into the picture, over the period, the storage consumption and retrieval has now shifted from Hardware to Social Media.
Today, in the modern era of Web 2.0, people not only take pictures or gather information but they also broadcast it across hundreds and thousands of people simultaneously. Social media has subsequently increased user’s need for creating and preserving memories so they can share their memories in the form of pictures, videos with their friends online.
The changing definition...
In the modern-age technology, trends change, and so the way consumers make use of the existing data storage solutions. Gone are the days when people simply used to store and retrieve their data from storage systems, such as hard drives, thumb drives, SSDs, or even cloud services, etc. Nowadays, people have realised the potential of online services and how they can be used to preserve their memories.
Talking about today’s Internet computing, social media websites have not been limited to entertainment or communication anymore. These services have already started integrating cloud storage solutions for offering more space to store your pictures.
