The new features will work on the Dropcam HD, Dropcam Echo, and Dropcam Original.
Sorry Android users, no word when these or if these features will be enabled for the Android OS.

Getting started with an Android phone, if you are switching from iOS, or if you’ve never owned a smartphone before, can be challenging. The Android platform is user friendly, but it’s long list of features and settings simply take some getting used to. High-quality video tutorials for Android phones can be found on YouTube. Here are the 5 most helpful Android tutorials on the site. The tutorials should be applicable to most Android users, including those with prepaid cell phones.
Most of the time I eventually donate them to friends and family or give it away. A few weeks ago a friend recommended I sell what no one wanted on Gazelle.com. I had a few monitors, some old cell phones (blackberry and android), and a few other things.
So I went to Gazelle.com, entered the items I had 12 in total was given a 565 dollar quote. I accepted the quote, about an hour later one prepaid shipping label arrived in my inbox. Not enough as my 12 items needed three different boxes. Contacted their support via live chat and they sent me three more right away.
Some companies, have told me that cloud computing is accessing your files from any network regardless if it is an internal network or not. Others have said it has to be an external network, and then there are those who talk gibberish when talking about clouds.
What the cloud is to me? It’s the network we access websites, applications, email and files from. This website/blog is hosted in the cloud, that email you read or are about to read was sent through the cloud. The cloud has always been there, but we called it a network. But because “NETWORK” doesn’t sound cool some marketing folks came up with “The Cloud”.
But “The Cloud” in the past year has become more generalized and it means, an off site networked location you can store your files and access applications from.
So what are the 10 reasons why we aren’t ready for the cloud?
Starting today Symantec is allowing everyone to help them test their new service called “Norton Identity Safe”. The service will allow you to store your passwords in the cloud, so that you don’t have to remember them.
According to a survey conducted by Symantec 38% of us write down our passwords on a piece of paper. Not smart as anyone can gain access to it.
The software is available for free during the beta test at http://identitysafe-beta.norton.com.
The software is available for PC, iPhone, iPad and iPod.
If you have read my reviews over the past 8 years, you’d know I have used a lot of windows based computers in my day. So you can understand when I say no matter whom makes the system it’s pretty much always the same experience. Sure designs change, and specs improve but once you hit that power button it’s all the same, right? You have a start button, some icons and when you click on them, a window opens up. It’s all the same system to system to system. So I thought, until I met the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 420s.
