Synology DS213air Review: Your home cloud goes wireless

Backup. It's more often than not the guilty omission in homes and small offices, and the hassle of setup - finding a place to plug in for both power and network - is often cited as a key hurdle.

If you were an existing MobileMe user when the service made the transition to Apple's iCloud, your days of free bonus storage are nearly over.

iOS 6 YouTube loss opens door to iCloud video share rival

Apple's decision to junk the iOS 6 YouTube app has prompted no small degree of surprise from iPhone and iPad owners, more used to platform upgrades adding functionality than removing it, but the multimedia outlook isn't grim. Google is already working on a replacement app - which this time it will maintain and distribute itself - while Apple highlights that YouTube video playback already works within Safari and doesn't demand the standalone software anyway.
