Unless you are talking about your inbox’s capacity. You can either pay your email provider for more disk storage or incorporate the cloud into your file management strategy. Sending emails with giant attachments gets old quick – and expensive if you are paying by the bit. Instead of ducking, put those attachments in the cloud.
Brian Curry from YouSendIt will help you corral your inbox quota using the cloud to get those attachments under control. Find out more on the SHOW PAGE. If you have an overloaded inbox, this is the show for you. We’ll also give you two great reasons to go to Vegas in May – Interop and CPM 2010 West.
If you use Gmail, your free producer tip of the week is to take Gmail’s priority inbox to the next step using the ‘Super Nick Email System’. Never look at an email more than twice again.

Here at TechTalk, we not only talk about the cloud – we rely on it. We use WordPress.com for our website, Google for our imitechtalk.com mail and a plethora of other services that rely on the cloud – Twitter, bit.ly and Flickr come to mind at first thought. While the majority of this data is data we want you to see, we want to be sure it will be there and safe from other people trying to pass along information as us. What does all of that rely on? Security.
This week, Tom is joined by Craig Balding who was our very first Cloud Computing guest. Craig will let us know what is going on with service providers, how security models are evolving and a new project he is developing. Find out more on the SHOW PAGE. Don’t forget that the show will be on at 1pm EST …also don’t forget that time goes back an hour everywhere except Arizona.

We’ve covered cloud computing for a while now. As the technologies underlying the cloud and the related services have matured, so too has our coverage. We first focused on ‘what is the cloud’. And while that definition can still be a moving target depending who you ask, there is no doubt the cloud is no longer a buzzword. Cloud computing not only delivers applications like email, it is evolving platforms that change the way you internet and changing the way IT services are delivered from small businesses to the largest enterprises (Guess who manages McDonald’s email? Autodesk, Nokia? California Emergency Management Agency?). This pay as you go computing is also lowering barriers to enter applications into various markets.
Even if you are not sure if the cloud is right for you, it is the right time to look into the cloud.

We’ll start with Tom covering holes in the energy grid you can drive a USB stick through, the iPhone security flaw that allows you to break the spell of your Apple and AT&T overlords, guess who wants to handle you medical records and much more in our Week in Review. If our first story on the gaping holes in the energy grid’s security don’t get you worried, here is how the weakest link in the DoD opened the barn door for hackers. That being said, the government has realized that we are far behind the expected upcoming demand for cyberwarriors, so they opened a summer camp.

Our site of the week is – Pandora.com is a music site that builds custom streaming channels based on your interests. Using Artists and Songs, you tell Pandora what you like, and it plays songs based on those suggestions. Each song it offers up can be given a thumbs up or down; bookmarked (song and/or artist); offer a very interesting explanation to ‘why was this song selected’; and more. Making multiple stations for different moods along with stations crafted by Pandora can provide the mood for any task or no task at all. If you like music and don’t Pandora, you are welcome. If you already Pandora, you know what I mean.
If you have any suggestions, questions or comments about the website, send them to web at imitechtalk dot com.
Check back in a couple of days for more info on this Sunday’s show.
