The 2nd gen Amazon Echo Dot is just $30 today

Historically, the best direct discount ever.

Right now you can get one for just $29.99 in Black or White. That’s a price we haven’t seen since Prime Day in mid-July.

For the past couple months, the best deals we’ve seen on the 2nd-generation Echo Dot have generally been in bundle deals… like getting bundled with a smart video doorbell or the Kids Edition that comes with a FreeTime Unlimited subscription. Getting a direct discount is not quite as common. Even during Amazon’s big hardware sale in August, the Echo Dot didn’t drop this low.

This hands-free, voice-controlled device uses Alexa to do all sorts of stuff. Play music, control smart home devices, make phone calls, read the news, check the weather, hear audiobooks, set timers and alarms, and oh yeah….shop on Amazon. These things are seriously handy. I find myself asking for weather updates when deciding what to wear, and playing music through my Echo Dot to keep my phone battery full. You’ll surely find tons of uses for yo…

So, I'm here to give you some suggestions to help you secure and store your most precious files with a list of the best online backup services and external hard drive backup programs.

Online backup services

Online backup services allow you to save your most important data in a remote location without having to switch out hard drives and relocate the spare every week. It ensures that, even if something catastrophic happened to your computer and external hard drives, your personal data would still be safe.

Backblaze

Backblaze has one of the least expensive plans on the market, while still providing a plethora of features and options. It's also the easiest to use if you aren't trying to customize your back up options.

See at Backblaze

Backblaze automatically selects what data to back up, though you can manually exclude folders you don't want to be backed up. When you sign up with Backblaze, you can download a special tool that will track your Mac's location in case it ends up lost or stolen. Plus if something goes wrong with your computer and you have to download everything that was stored with Backblaze but don't want to bog down your internet, you can order a USB Flash drive or hard drive and they'll FedEx it to your door.

Backblaze has personal plans with unlimited back ups starting at $50 per year.

IDrive

IDrive is a multi-platform online backup service that lets you connect multiple devices for full backup security. There are multiple account options to fit your needs, and they've even solved the oh-so-cumbersome issue of first-time backup bog down.

See at IDrive

IDrive sends you a physical hard drive to load your data onto, and then upload it to the cloud themselves after you ship it back! It's available for Mac, PC, and mobile devices. You can even back up your Facebook and Instagram data.

PC Mag named it one of the best online backup services of 2016.

IDrive does just about everything you need an online backup service to do—and more. With continual backup, folder syncing, file sharing, archiving, File Explorer integration, strong mobile apps, and an unlimited number of devices per account, it's hard to believe the service costs less than most of the competition.

IDrive runs about $70 per year for the 2 TB personal level, though you can get started with a 5 GB basic plan for free.

Carbonite

Carbonite is a great online backup plan for beginners. If you've never delved into the world of securing your data remotely, it features a suggested backup option for you. So, you won't be muddled up wondering whether you should be backing up less-important data.

See at Carbonite

Carbonite also has a backup scheduler, so you can designate when backups happen. This is useful for people with poor internet connections because you can schedule a backup to take place every night, while you sleep, and not during the evening when you're trying to watch Game of Thrones (ugh!).

Carbonite offers unlimited online backups for one computer at the personal level and keeps a dozen of the most recent changes made to a file so you can go back to an earlier version if need by.

Carbonite's unlimited cloud plans start at $60 per year, but you can save up to 30 percent off if you subscribe for multiple years at once.

Cloudberry

Unlike other online backup options, CloudBerry Backup for Mac from CloudBerry Lab is really a bring-your-own-online-storage solution.

See at Cloudberry Lab

CloudBerry Backup software supports over a dozen online storage providers, including the usual suspects such as Amazon S3 and Glacier, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Storage, OpenStack, Rackspace, HP Cloud, and Backblaze B2. Once you've settled on a compatible cloud storage provider, you tell CloudBerry Backup what files you want to be backed up where and when, and the software takes it from there. In addition, there's an option to back up data to a hard drive connected to the Mac.

If you want more fine-grained control of which files get backed up—and especially if you're using more than one online storage provider—CloudBerry Backup is a good choice.

External hard drive backup programs

External hard drive backups are the simplest, and least expensive way to secure your data. All you have to do is download some software, connect a hard drive, and schedule back ups. To be doubly safe, it is a good idea to always have two hard drives if you don't have a remote backup plan. That way, you can switch the drives each week and move the spare to a different location. This ensures that if something catastrophic happens to your home or office, there is a backup that is no more than a week old at a different location.

Time Machine

Time Machine is an obvious choice for Mac users. It comes with your Mac, and all you have to do is connect a hard drive to get started.

Learn about Time Machine

Time Machine also lets you retrieve specific images from folders, so you don't have to restore from a full back up or deal with the internet slowdown of uploading all of your files online. It has a smart local snapshot feature that will delete older backups as you run out of space, and then save them for longer periods of time when you get back more space.

It's also free, which is a very nice incentive to start using it. You can virtually set it and forget it until you need to access it.

Time Machine is built-in software on your Mac. You have no excuse not to back up your data, now.

Carbon Copy Cloner

Carbon Copy Cloner creates an exact copy of your Mac's drive or individual folders with a simple interface that makes it easy to understand what to do next. You can schedule backups hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or manually.

See at Bombich

You can view your history and filter types of backups. It creates a bootable clone that is stored on an external hard drive, which you can start up your computer from if something does wrong. In addition to the full backup, you can also access recently deleted and changed files, which are cached as you work.

Carbon Copy Cloner costs $40 for all computers in your household.

SuperDuper!

Super Duper backs up all of your Mac's files to your external hard drive. It features a smart updater that will copy and erase files as needed and can be scheduled for regular cloning backups.

See at Shirt Pocket

It is super easy to set up and use. You hit "Copy Now" to create a bootable backup on your external hard drive. Then, schedule the smart updates, which will only update changes that have been made, so it doesn't take a lot of time or use up a lot of energy.

You can register one Mac with SuperDuper! for $27.95.

Mac Backup Guru

With Mac Backup Guru, you can make an exact clone of a folder or an entire disk drive. If you have older, partial backups, it will sync up to create a clone faster than starting from scratch.

See at MacDaddy

You can use it to make a bootable backup, which can be stored on an external drive. It also includes incremental snapshots that use software to create essential thumbnails of your backups so you can access multiple backups without taking up a lot of space.

Mac Backup Guru costs $29 per computer for a one-time licensing fee.

Hybrid local and cloud backup services

Ideally, you should have both a local backup program in place and an off-site cloud-based backup service. The combination of Time Machine and iCloud Drive is a great example of using both. You can also go with a company that provides both local and cloud-based backup options in one plan.

Acronis True Image

Acronis provides a hybrid backup program that runs a local backup on your external hard drive and a secondary cloud backup stored on the company's servers. You can also get Acronis for your iPhone and iPad, with unlimited device connections. You can store photos, videos, contacts, and more on your local hard drive, and even wirelessly to your Mac.

See at Acronis

Locally, backups run automatically and continuously with end-to-end encryption. When you enable the cloud backup, your files are synced off-site using a storage service that is WAN-optimized for faster recovery. Cloud syncing can be scheduled as often as you like, even as often as every five minutes.

It's one of the easiest backup solutions, next to Time Machine. All you have to do to get started is click the Backup button. Everything happens automatically after that.

Accrois True Image has tiered plans starting at $50 for the standard local backup for one computer. You can also get the advanced tier, which includes 250GB of cloud backups for $50 per year for one computer and unlimited mobile devices. The premium tier, includes a couple of advanced security features for businesses and starts at $100 per year for 1TB of cloud storage. Prices go up about $30 to $50 for additional computers, but lowers the per-computer price in the end.

Until data is misused, Facebook’s breach will be forgotten

We cared about Cambridge Analytica because it could have helped elect Trump. We ignored LocationSmart because even the though the company was selling and exposing the real-time GPS coordinates of our phones, it was never clear exactly if or how that data was misused. This idea, that privacy issues are abstract concepts for most people […]

We cared about Cambridge Analytica because it could have helped elect Trump. We ignored LocationSmart because even the though the company was selling and exposing the real-time GPS coordinates of our phones, it was never clear exactly if or how that data was misused.

This idea, that privacy issues are abstract concepts for most people until they become security or ideological problems, is important to understanding Facebook’s massive breach revealed this week. 

The social network’s engineering was sloppy, allowing three bugs to be combined to steal the access tokens of 50 million people. In pursuit of rapid growth at affordable efficiency, Facebook failed to protect its users. This assessment doesn’t discount that. Facebook screwed up big time.

But despite the potential that those access tokens could have let the attackers take over user accounts, act as them, and scrape their personal info, it’s unclear how much users really care. That’s because for now, Facebook and it’s watchdogs aren’t sure exactly what data was stolen or how it was wrongly used.

The Hack That Broke The Camel’s Back?

This could all change tomorrow. If Facebook discovers the hack was perpetrated by a foreign government to interfere with elections, by criminals to bypass identity theft security checkpoints and steal people’s bank accounts or social media profiles, or to target individuals for physical harm, out will come the pitchforks and torches. 

Given a sufficiently scary application for the data, the breach could finish the job of destroying Facebook’s brand. If users start clearing their profile data, reducing their feed browsing, and ceasing to share, the breach could have significant financial and network effect consequences for Facebook. After years of scandals, this could be the hack that’s broke the camel’s back.

Yet in the absence of that evil utilization of the hacked data, the breach could fade into the background for users. Similar to the tension-filled departures of the founders of Facebook’s acquisitions Instagram and WhatsApp, the brunt of the backlash may not come from the public.

The hack could hasten regulation of social media. Senator Warner called on Congress to “step up” following the hack. He’s previously advocated for privacy laws similar to Europe’s GDPR. That includes data portability and interoperability rules that could make it easier to switch social networks. That threat of people moving to competing apps could succeed in compelling Facebook to treat user privacy and security better.

The FTC or European Union could hand down significant fines to Facebook for the breach. But given it earns billions in profit per quarter, those fees would have to be historically massive be a serious penalty for Facebook.

One of the biggest questions about the attack is whether the tokens were used to access other services like Airbnb or Spotify that rely on Facebook Login. The breach could steer potential partners away from building atop Facebook’s identity platform. But at least you don’t have to worry about changing all your passwords. Unlike hacks that steal usernames and passwords, the lasting danger of the Facebook breach is limited. The access tokens have already been invalidated, whereas password reuse can lead people to have their other apps hacked long after the initial breach.

Desensitized

If government investigators, journalists, or anti-Facebook activists want to make the company pay for its negligence, they’ll need to connect it to some concrete threat to how we live or what we believe.

For now, without a nefarious application of the breached data, this scandal could blend into the rest of Facebook’s troubles. Every week, sometimes multiple times a week, Facebook has some headline grabbing problem. Over time, those are adding up to deter usage of Facebook and spur more users to delete it. But without an independent general purpose social network they can easily switch to, many users have endured Facebook’s stumbles in exchange for the connective utility it provides. 

As breaches become more common, the public may be desensitized. Between Equifax, Yahoo, and the cell phone companies, we’re growing accustomed to letting out a deep sigh with maybe some expletives, and moving on with our lives. The ones we’ll remember will be those where the danger metastasized from the digital world into our offline lives.

Stock up on TP-Link’s Kasa mini smart plugs for $20 each

Make everything a little smarter.

The TP-Link smart plug mini is down to $19.99 on Amazon, which is a match of its lowest price. It tends to fluctuate a bunch, but seems to bound between like $27 and $30, with the last time it hit this low being back at Black Friday time.

Unlike most other smart plugs on the market right now, this one only covers up a single outlet, meaning you can stack two of them in the same receptacle, or use just one with another plug. The free Kasa iOS and Android apps allow you to control the status of the plug from anywhere, and you can also use a voice assistant, like Alexa on the Echo Dot (down to its lowest price today) to turn it on or off. It can be scheduled and has an away mode to turn devices on and off at random times so it appears as though you’re home.

If you’ve been looking for some extra smart plugs for the house, or want to try one out for the first time, this is one of the best options available.

Carpooling service Klaxit partners with Uber for last-minute changes

French startup Klaxit connects drivers with riders so that you don’t have to take your car to work every day. And the company recently announced a new feature with the help of Uber. If your driver cancels your ride home, Klaxit will book an Uber for you.

Klaxit is a ride-sharing startup that focuses on one thing — commuting to work. And this problem is more complicated than you might think. You can’t just go to work with the same person every day because you don’t always go to work at the same time. Similarly, sometimes your driver has to leave work early, leaving you at the office with no alternative.

As a driver, you want to take the quickest route to work. So you want to be matched with riders who are exactly on the way to work.

Klaxit currently handles 300,000 rides per day. In particular, the company has partnered with 150 companies, including big French companies such as BNP Paribas, Veolia, Vinci and Sodexo.

Klaxit can be particularly useful for companies with large office buildings outside of big cities. Promoting Klaxit instantly fosters supply and demand from and to this office. But you don’t have to work for one of those companies to use Klaxit.

Local governments can also financially support Klaxit to improve traffic conditions and mobility for users who don’t have a car or a driver’s license. “Subsidizing rides on Klaxit is 8 to 10 times cheaper than building a bus line,” co-founder and CEO Julien Honnart told me.

One of the biggest concerns as a rider is that you’re going to be stuck at work in the evening. Klaxit is now asking its users to request a ride with two other drivers. If they both decline your request, Klaxit will book you an Uber ride to go back home.

You don’t have to pay the Uber ride and then get reimbursed, Klaxit pays Uber directly. You don’t need an Uber account either as Klaxit is using Uber for Business. MAIF is the insurance company behind this insurance feature, and also one of Klaxit’s investors. This is a neat feature to convince new users that they can trust Klaxit.

Klaxit competes with other French startups on this market, such as Karos and BlaBlaCar’s BlaBlaLines.

Relike lets you turn a Facebook page into a newsletter

French startup Ownpage has recently released a new product called Relike. Relike is one of the easiest ways to get started with email newsletters. You enter the web address of your Facebook page and that’s about it.

The company automatically pulls your most recent posts from your Facebook page and lets you set up an emailing campaign in a few clicks. You can either automatically pick your most popular Facebook posts or manually select a few posts.

Just like any emailing service, you can choose between multiple templates, decide the day of the week and time of the day, import a database of email addresses and more. If you’ve used Mailchimp in the past, you’ll feel right at home.

But the idea isn’t to compete directly with newsletter services. Many social media managers, media organizations, small companies, nonprofits and sports teams already have a Facebook page but aren’t doing anything on the email front.

Relike is free if you send less than 2,000 emails per month and don’t need advanced features. If you want to get open rates, click-through rates and other features, you’ll need to pay €5 per month and €0.50 every time you send 1,000 emails.

The company’s other product Ownpage is a bit different. Ownpage has been working with media organizations to optimize their email newsletters. The company is tracking reading habits on a news site and sending personalized email newsletters.

This way, readers will get tailored news and will more likely come back to your site. Many big French news sites use Ownpage for their newsletters, such as Les Echos, L’Express, 20 Minutes, BFM TV, Le Parisien, etc.

Ownpage founder and CEO Stéphane Cambon told me that Relike was the obvious second act. Using browsing data for customized newsletters is one thing, but many talented social media managers know how to contextualize stories and maximize clicks (even if it means clickbait, sure).

The startup was looking at a way to get this data, and ended up creating Relike, which could appeal to customers beyond news organizations. For now, both products will stick around. In the future, the company plans to add Twitter and Instagram integrations as well as better signup flows for newsletter subscribers.
