Western Digital has announced that the MioNet service wrapped around their WD Network Storage is being closed. Western Digital offered remote access via any browser or their mobile app to your files stored on their WD storage devices. Unfortunately this appears not be a sustainable business model per this announcement yesterday. You could find the MioNet service with the My Book Live and My Book World drives.

MioNet Customers with Month-to-Month Subscriptions

Beginning in March 2015, WD will no longer accept monthly subscriptions for the MioNet Service. The MioNet Service, though, will continue to be available free of charge to month-to-month subscribers until March 31, 2016, at which time the MioNet Service will be discontinued.

MioNet Customers with Annual Subscriptions

Beginning in March 2015, WD will no longer accept annual subscriptions for the MioNet Service. Customers with annual subscriptions will receive the MioNet service for the remainder of their subscription period, and will then continue to have access to the MioNet Service free of charge through March 31, 2016.

Other vendors, such as Transporter, are also trying to survive in the industry where you do not want to store your files in public shared clouds like DropBox, Copy or Box.  MioNet had a slew of capabilities but I do not think the average consumer was taking advantage of the subscription model offered. They bought these My World drives to backup computers, transport files with them or have them in the small office and home as a shared resource.  Paying a fee to have them accessible everywhere competes with the free (limited space) sharing the other services I mentioned offered.

If you use MioNet your subscription will continue but will not renew. So start moving some files to other services. I am currently like the 15GB free from Copy.com. Use my referral link to get your free space today.

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
