Streem launches to offer unlimited cloud storage for one flat rate

Streem is launching Streem Drive to offer unlimited cloud storage and streaming for one flat monthly rate. Should offerings Dropbox, Box, Copy and others be worried? Maybe they should since Streem will also offer 20GB of free space to everyone to get you hooked.

Streem is taking a new approach with unlimited storage by utilizing deduplication of cloud files and using proprietary technology to stream movies and audio to your devices. They hope they can compensate and estimate the large need for space many of us have. They also must hope we have many of the same files apparently.

Files are opened natively on the device, requiring no special software, configuration, or any change in the consumer’s behavior. Large videos are instantly streamed using proprietary adaptive bitrate streaming technology, giving consumers the best possible quality without any lag, no matter the device or bandwidth.

Sharing a link to files and making public folders is all part of the package and what is expected from any cloud storage provider.  Folders, security and all the regular things seem to be in place. Performance from other reviewers seems good but time will tell when they start to load up users.

The change is the way they went to a flat tier for pricing.  Streem is offering a free month for referrals. Dropbox gives you 500MB for each person you invite with a maximum limit of 16GB. Sites like Copy give you 5GB for each referral with no limit. Since Streem gives you unlimited space you could ride for aree for a long time with enough constant paying referrals.  All the cloud storage services are in a race to convince users to upload everything they own to the cloud for anywhere access and some for of guaranteed availability.

Streem will be $20/month for unlimited space.  Dropbox gives 100GB for only $9.99/month on top of their small free space.  Copy offers 250GB for $10/month on top of their free and referral space.  Box jumps in with 1000GB for $15/month but has many restrictions on their free plans.

You can try out Streem for free right here.

Apps to spy on your childrens mobile phones
Thu, Aug 11th 2016 12:42p   Chris Miller
We look at the growing number of apps that spy on the mobile phone activity of your children.  An increasing number of parents feel the need to spy on their children’s cell phones to keep up with who they talk to and what they share. One thing to remember is that all of the data you are tracking is being sent from your child’s phone to the Internet and then stored there. While all of these services use encryption to store the data, the fear it is out there is always on our mind. Wh

How to create a Pokestop for Pokemon Go. Good for businesses?
Thu, Jul 14th 2016 5:35p   Chris Miller
I could go into Pokemon Go security or even how to play, but what about creating Pokestops as a way to increase foot traffic to your business? As brought up by a friend during a Facebook posting, a Pokestop can be beneficial. What is a Pokestop? As defined by Niantic Labs, a Pokestop is a place to collect items such as Pokeballs, eggs and a ton of other items to help you catch, grow and maintain Pokemon.  Sounds simple right? There are so many online resource right now showing you every corne

GoGo Entertainment app review – GoGo quickly away from it
Thu, Jun 23rd 2016 4:16p   Chris Miller
Many airlines are turning their in-flight entertainment over to GoGo Entertainment (who also controls GoGo Internet in the flights). The use and flow of this application as an entertainment server is horrid. Here is my story. On a recent American Airlines flight (formerly US Air leg from St Louis to Charlotte) I noticed all the in seat music was disabled. The magazine and agents directed me to the GoGo Internet to then hook into the GoGo Entertainment to get the music, movies and TV shows. I pre

You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling book review
Mon, Mar 14th 2016 12:02p   Chris Miller
I read You Are the Key: Unlocking the Door Through Social Selling cover to cover as someone that is very familiar with the content and their goals. If I stepped back and looked at it from a new comer to the ideas of using social networks as a social selling tool, they cover the basics very thoroughly and then get a bit lighter in the actual selling. The book only has one flaw that got in my way an that was the breaking up of the networks across the chapters causing them to repeat themselves. I t
