Leverage the power of CLOUD COMPUTING using standard Unix tools!
Put.io is a storage service that fetches media files and lets you stream them immediately You can use it to stream video, listen to your music and share your library with friends.
An interesting idea: you tell Put.io to download torrents, grab files from FTP servers or access stuff on ‘paysites’—Rapdshare, et al., I assume—and it’ll make the content available for streaming, converting between formats if necessary.
In other words, it’s a fancy form of seedbox.
This is pretty neat. FileShuttle is one of these ultrasimple file sharing apps like CloudApp, but you host the files yourself.
I gave it a go by creating a directory called “shared” on one of my sites. Files are uploaded via FTP or SFTP when you drag them onto the FileShuttle icon in the Dock. It does a few things that CloudApp doesn’t like zipping up files before uploading them (could be good or bad) and creating txt files for any text that is dropped on the icon, making it a personal pasteboard. After uploading, a short link from bit.ly or the unfortunately named sht.tl is copied to the clipboard.
I just downloaded this and set it up in about two minutes. Works as advertised. If you care at all about, well, owning the stuff you want to share, and have the FTP space to support it, this is the way to go. It’s like a little slice of awesome between fresh bread.
To, er, garnish that awesome sandwich with some delicious keyboard relish, bring up a file or folder in Alfred, Quicksilver, &c., then do ‘Open with… FileShuttle’.
5 GB of free storage. 20 GB for $20 per annum, 50 GB for $50, and so on, all the way up to a 1000 GB for $1000.
The real story, though, is the fact that MP3s purchased from Amazon are stored for free, and can be streamed via the Amazon Cloud Player.
In other words, Amazon have beaten Apple to the punch in offering music in the cloud.
This innovating application adds a new icon in your system tray. Upon right-clicking it, you will get a menu to upload whatever is in your clipboard to where you chose it to be. For example, you can quickly upload a screenshot of something to an FTP server…, and immediately put the link to it in your clipboard, so you can paste the link in an IM or IRC window!
ClipUpload also integrates with services like Pastebin and Imgur, so you don’t need access to a server to use it.
CloudApp allows you to share images, links, music, videos and files. Here is how it works: choose a file, drag it to the menubar and let us take care of the rest. We provide you with a short link automatically copied to your clipboard that you can use to share your upload with co-workers and friends.
