Google Drive Will Give You 2GB Of Storage For Free If You Do Security Checks

Google Drive Will Give You 2GB Of Storage For Free If You Do Security Checks

If you aren’t using cloud storage in this day and age, then I suggest checking it out. There is so much free cloud storage out there that you could conceivably keep all of your photos online, without the need for a physical hard drive at all.

But we can get into the logistics of the cloud another time. Here, I’d just like to inform you about a neat little deal Google has for those of you who use Google Drive, their particular cloud service.

If you are willing to simply perform a little security check, they will give you an extra 2 GB of storage in your Google Drive. The check itself is quick and painless, and all you have to do is verify the basic things, like your password, e-mails, and security questions.

You’ll also get the opportunity to review your recent log-ins (to check for suspicious activity), and see the apps that have access to your account. After that, you should see the two GB of extra storage space be added to your Google Drive account by the end of the month.

Why is Google offering this? Well, it’s a win-win for them. They get to make sure you understand a little bit about how your account is secured, and get to give you a reason to use their cloud service over the ones offered by Microsoft and Apple.

That said, there’s no reason for you to not take advantage of this promotion. Two free gigabytes of data is nothing to scoff at, especially when it’s getting more and more popular to save things to the cloud.

Did you get your 2 free gigabytes? What do you think of cloud storage? Comment below!

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
