Google Drive will soon be able to backup your entire computer

Google Drive is ready to be the answer to all your computer storage needs — and not just the files you create and upload using its cloud-based services like Google Docs and Photos.

The search giant just announced a new Backup and Sync tool, which will give everyday users the chance to save all the files and photos on their PCs to Google Drive. It’ll make file management in the cloud a more seamless experience. Rather than creating entirely new folders, the tool will recreate your desktop folder system in Drive.

MP3 Format is officially dead

If you grew up in the 90s and early 2000s, you probably still remember downloading MP3 files to build your music collection, and burning up to 10 times as many of these onto audio discs than you could with traditional CD tracks. I didn’t just remind you of MP3s to make you feel old first thing on a Monday morning; I also wanted you to know that the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits – the German agency that invented the audio format and licenses some patents for it – has officially terminated its licensing program.

This doesn’t mean that MP3s stored on your hard drive will stop working, but don’t expect to see many new devices professing support for the format from here on out. For many music fans, myself included, the MP3 holds a deeper meaning than just a file format. Growing up as a 90s kid, music tracks hunting for new rock releases and genre-defining metal albums? Were found on the internet, of course. Online, I was able to explore an ocean of music from every corner of the globe, discover artists I’d never heard of in my life, and develop an ear for well crafted songs. As I slowly grew my collection one track at a time and shared curated selections with peers and fellow music lovers, I was grateful for the opportunity to connect with likeminded people over the years and bond over a shared love for the stylings of Incubus, Metallica, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Death. In a statement, the German institute noted that while MP3 is still popular among some consumers, newer formats like AAC “can deliver more features and a higher audio quality at much lower bitrates.” It’s not wrong: these formats are indeed better for streaming and carrying more information than MP3s ever could. It’s just not all that easy to let go, though. Farewell, dear MP3, and thanks for the memories.

Now, with more than half of all internet traffic coming from a mobile device, it is extremely important to make sure your website is primed for mobile viewing. As we sit here in 2017, Let us be clear: If you plan on running a successful eCommerce website, or any website, you absolutely must cater to mobile users. Not doing so is simply ignoring a majority of your potential customers.
Not only are significantly more users accessing the web from a tablet or smartphone than a desktop, they are doing so with more eCommerce intent than ever before. During last year's busy holiday shopping season, a third of all online purchases came from smartphone users. Not even Black Friday was immune to mobile fever, as nearly 40% of sales on the traditionally brick and mortar shopping day came via a mobile device. That's up almost 10% from the previous year.
The fact is, it's now statistically much more likely that eCommerce customers will be interacting with your website from a smartphone or tablet than a desktop. Armed with this knowledge, it's your responsibility to create a shopping experience that appeals to your customers. Mobile shoppers are finicky, and rightfully so. With the highly competitive nature of the eCommerce industry, your customers will not hesitate to buy from your competitors if even the slightest headache arises.
