Hivelocity announced earlier in the week that they are now including a free 60GB Intel 520 series Solid State Hard Drive with all new servers. The free SSD is included as an extra drive and not a replacement for the SATA or SAS drives already included with the standard server configurations. Customers have the choice of having the free SSD mounted as the primary drive for their operating system or as a secondary drive for whatever use they choose.
“We have been offering solid state drives with our servers for the last year or two and every month they gain more traction. The speed benefits our customers with SSD have realized is fantastic and we figured a super fast server equates to a super happy customer so lets give them away for free,” said Hivelocity USA Sales Manager Drew Adams.
1&1 have launched a free suite of drag-and-drop style web applications available for use within its MyWebsite package. Up to 100 applications have been included, many offering useful sector-specific functionality across areas including eCommerce, communication, social media, and daily management tasks. The development means that customers signing up for selected 1&1 MyWebsite packages can enjoy more impact on the web and satisfy the most demanding website visitors. For example, within a few clicks, a restaurant can now integrate a table booking application for its customers to use. The Web Apps are integrated within a 1&1 MyWebsite, and remove the need for website visitors to be diverted away to external URLs. The applications mean that more business processes can be driven by a small business website.
By integrating web application ecommerce functionality from respected brands such as Amazon, PayPal and eBay, a website can offer convenient and credible online retailing. The Web Apps are deployed effortlessly, by simply dragging and dropping the desired element anywhere on a website. Customer communication is also a vital process for every small business today. 1&1 MyWebsite now offers a range of applications such as Skype and Calendar Wiz providing new, modern ways to interact with customers. Furthermore, Web Apps such as Google+1, LinkedIn and Pinterest allow SMBs to make their professional websites more social media friendly. Online business management can be enhanced with apps including Slideshare, Website Translator and Statistics Summary.
Importantly, 1&1 has worked hard to ensure that the most popular and trusted apps are on offer in each country of operation. Localised apps are on offer for both vertical business needs as well as general business management. For example, UK restaurant customers are offered Open Table and Yelp Reviews Web apps, whilst hoteliers can incorporate reviews from Trip Advisor and photo streams from Flickr. A detailed explanation for every application option provides a helpful guide for users to select the most valuable choices for an individual business.
More people own cellphones than passports now; a large number of internet users are using their mobile devices to access the internet.

The SugarSync app for iOS has been updated for iOS 6, and the update is available for download now! The new app has been optimized for iOS 6, which also means that it now has support for the larger/taller screen on the iPhone 5 as well. In addition to iOS 6 optimizations and the taller format, the changes made in the previous app upgrade are also present. These include:
- The new app update brings support for both Spanish and German languages to the app.
- You can now upgrade your 5GB account to a 30GB paid account right from within the app.
- The new app has improved the security of sharing folders so that shared folder invitation links will be sent through SugarSync as opposed to your personal email. Each recipient will get a unique invitation link, so only the recipients you specify will be able to accept the shared folder invitation.
And, as always, there are some minor bug fixes and performance improvements to the new app as well.
