Share your digital files securely at anytime

Protect, access and share your digital files anytime, anyplace
Life brings you many places: children's school events, neighborhood parties, and work conferences. At the same time, you are accumulating digital memories in the form of photos, videos, music, and documents. Trend Micro™ SafeSync connects these two aspects of your life, enabling you to store your files in a safe place you can access from anywhere.

That safe is place is "the cloud," a corner of the Internet that's only available to you and the people you choose to share it with. Because with SafeSync, your files are securely and automatically backed up within moments of you saving them. All you need to retrieve your special memories is a web-enabled device, whether it's a desktop computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, or Android device.

SafeSync makes it easy to share your files with specified contacts, and post to Facebook, Twitter, or your blog. And you can be sure your information is secure, with virus scanning and file transfer encryption services built into the software. Now how's that for all around peace of mind?

Recover past file versions
SafeSync keeps a history of all your file changes, making it easy to recuperate previous versions of your pictures, videos, and documents. If you delete an item by accident, there's no need to worry. SafeSync has a recycling bin that allows you to retrieve this file.

I recently received a free trial of Safe Sync for being a Bzz Agent. So I went through and downloaded the software and set up the program. This was a fairly quick and painless process. Once I was done installing the software, I could share files between my computers at home, work, or even friends computer. This is too easy to use to pass up!

Book Review - Here,Home, Hope by Kaira Rouda (click for youtube review)

Here, Home, Hope is the story of Kelly Johnson, a wife and mother with the perfect home, perfect husband, and perfect children. At 39, she has just been through a breast cancer scare and realized her life was missing something. She finds herself crying for no reason, and seems really unhappy with a life that most people would be thrilled to have.

This was an interesting book. There were times I was frustrated with Kelly over the fact that she had more than most people, but she was still not happy with her life.
Kelly had some great ideas. She used Post It notes to write downs her "things to change," thoughts. I liked the idea of having Post It notes to remind myself of things that I need to change.

There were other characters throughout the book that were very interesting. Overall, I liked the story line, but I was frustrated with how unhappy with some of the characters were with their lives.

If I had to grade this book, I would give it a B-.

**I received a copy of this book from One2One Network to review.**
