mac appleSharing files over the internet has never been easy by using services like We-transfer, Dropbox and even email. Dislike this at which people can send a file to the other side of the globe, sharing data on a local network to the system across the room is still a complex thing. File sharing within a local network has always been a complex process. Even now, the most common way of sharing files is to have a file server by which files can be stored and accessed by people.

Let us think we have an office with two employees these are Jack and Jill. Jack is working on a video file that Jill now wants to access. Jack must copy the video on file server, which takes approximate ten minutes, and then Jill copies it back to her Mac system which also takes about the same amount of time.

Files with small sizes, like text documents and spreadsheets, people can mostly open the file directly on the server and then made the changes back. But for larger files, like video, that Jack and Jill are handled with, it is mostly suggested to copy the file locally to Mac before performing and modification.

For small businesses and home users, dedicated file server concept is applicable and it is also an unnecessary expense. Fortunately, there are a number of other ways by which users can share files between their Macs without having any dedicated server.

AirDrop is an application which was introduced in Mac OS X Lion to easily send files between Macs. With the help of AirDrop app, it is very simple to transfer the files between two different Mac users that are close or connected to the same network. It provides a simple drag and drop interface for sharing files without having to worry about approvals, servers or anything else that user usually have to consider.

Mac OS X has also contained an option to enable the File Sharing service, allowing remote users across a network to read and write files. With it enabled, people can assign access to other users to allow them to copy files to and from their Mac system, but with the ability to set limitations and even particular login information.

Still Nikon has to improve even after being one among the three manufacturers who have collaborated on this format. Canon is still yet to hint at support of XQD, even though it is not impossible and it is seen in the inevitable 1DX successor. The new Professional 2933x XQD 2.0 card of Lexar don’t mix with half of the possible read speeds of 2.0 version of XQD.

Creative one of the finest names in music devices industry recently introduced a portable speaker in the Sound Blaster range with the model name FRee. As you assume, it works entirely on Bluetooth. It has several features so as to stand against any competitor.

Creative Sound Blaster Portable Speaker FRee Review

It is a beer-shaped device of about 7.9 inch height and 2.78 inch wide. It has an IPX4 water resistance rate so that it can handle splashes of water. But never attempt to put this on a swimming pool. Will you?

Now connectivity. There are several connectivity options available on this device including AUX-in, Bluetooth 4.0, USB and finally a microSD slot. This device supports Multi-point Bluetooth that you allows you to use two connections at a time, when you are connecting this device to get paired up with your mobile device. While pairing, it offers you to make calls with maximum clarity.

The best part about this device is it’s built in MP3 player. You only have to copy MP3 files on a micro SD card and insert it on its microSD slot. The music will now begin to play. You can find several buttons on this device to control music volume, switch between tracks and choose between repeat or shuffle tracks. Anyhow, tracks locked with DRM (Digital Rights Management) cannot be played with this MP3 player. A prominent example is downloads from Apple iTunes store.

You can see this device is equipped with two audio drivers and bass radiators. A very high intensity audio output is what you supposed to get through this. So it is ideal to push the volume around 60%. If you increase up this limit, the bass level can get muffled, and even the vocals tend to be too sharp. So, for most of the rooms, the ideal volume range is between 30-60% where you’ll get crisp vocals and affordable bass levels.

Even though, Creative claims 10-hour battery backup for this device, in real time, it will depend on the volume levels that you are adjusting this device to be. The maximum capacity of microSD card supported by this device is 32 GB. You can purchase this product for ₹12,470 from Amazon.
