Online backup


een backup online maken

Cloud backup online

Online Backup now has a super offer which will interest many computer users to make use of it. For less than 5 euros per month allows unlimited backup running a computer. I think that in this digital world we live well enough to secure your photos. Unfortunately, I mean. My profession often fined that there is no backup of the files is created. When a hard drive crash, then data recovery must be performed this can be an expensive business. For a USB hard drive that you must treat it as a box of eggs because the hard disk is so sensitive that it seems to me this is an affordable solution for many people. A hard disk or a 100 euro for a little over 2 years maintained a backup. A hard disk has not eternal life, so this is a great deal. Remember that open files like Outlook with the Outlook PST file will not always backup   well when it is opened.

Now, this computer cost $ 2572 Euro 1800 should have because of inflation.

Apple was created as a cooperative on January 3, 1977 Ronald Wayne without his share of the company that sold back to Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. The multi-millionaire Mike Markkula provided essential items such as expertise in sales and marketing, he borrowed $ 250.000 to the company for a start.

The Apple II was introduced on April 16, 1977, and was definitely different than its competitors because it came with a color graphics card. The competitors were the TRS-80 and Commodore PET with a tape recorder that worked. Apple surpassed those computers with a 5 ¼ inch floppy disk drive.

VisiCalc spreadsheet program developed for the Apple II and gave the business market and the home user a reason to buy the Apple II. Apple was now in third place in the business market. By the end of the seventies had been Apple developers and production staff in service.

In May 1980 they introduced the Apple III to compete against IBM and Microsoft.Steve Jobs was right all convinced that all future computers a graphical interface environment needed and he began to develop the Apple Lisa. When Apple entered the market with this they generated more capital than the Ford Motor Company in 1956.

At Apple, most millionaires (300) was born and there is no other company that after she did. In 1978 Steve Jobs to the Apple Lisa project started in 1982 but now he had to stop a team with this company because they are low budget Macintosh took over.

Lisa won the race against competitors in 1983 and became the first personal computer to the public with a graphical environment. Commercially, this was seen as a flop because of the high purchase price and the limited amount of available software.

In 1984 Apple launched the first Macintosh with a television campaign. The Macintosh sold well but sales declined due to the high purchase price and the limited amount of software. This changed when the LaserWriter and PostScript laser printer for a reasonable price was introduced. The Mac was this progressive because the Macintosh GUI.

In 1989, Apple released the first portable Macintosh computer in 1991 and the PowerBook. They were just as powerful as a desktop Mac, but weighed 7.5 pounds with a time of twelve hours on the batteries. The same year, Apple released a major upgrade to System 7 operating system. A color interface and networking capabilities. This was the base until 2001.

The subsequent years were good and bad products. The upward trend is still with the Mac mini, iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air a great success.

On December 25, 2010, Apple had record revenue of $ 26.74 billion.

On Wednesday, October 5, 2011 Steve Jobs is deceased.
