Syncdocs – a proprietary sync tool which lets you sync multiple Google Drive accounts with end-to-end encryption.

Features:
– Sync any folders to Google Drive, not just the one folder Google’s client offers. These folders can be anywhere on your PC, network or even an external drive. So you have the freedom to make Google work the way you want it, and not be forced to use another folder structure.
– Better privacy and security. Sensitive materials are automatically encrypted online.
– Access all your files offline. Unlike Google’s client, all files are copied locally. This means you have a complete backup, and you can edit these files when offline. When you go online again, your changes are synced.
– Sync multiple accounts at the same time. Keep your home and work and Google Apps accounts all in sync at the same time!
– Install without Administrator permissions – powerful automated deployment scripts help you roll out and pre-configure Google Drive to your users.
– Schedule Google Drive backups – backup once a day if you want. Your Google contact list is backed up too!
– Full control over sync direction – upload, download or both
– Maintain Google access rights on Windows – files you share without edit permissions stay that way.
– Shared files are also synced – Google Drive won’t sync files that others share with you, Syncdocs lets you choose.
– Facebook, Twitter and GMail file sharing – simply click on a file or folder to share it.

CloudMe – a service that allow you to safely store, retrieve and share information no matter where you are or what device you’re using, computer, smartphone or tablet.

In CloudMe you have a large amount of possibilities to store / backup, manage, share and collaborate on folders and documents. Below we present some ways to simplify your handling of documents and files by using CloudMe.

CloudMe provides cloud storage through the blue CloudMe folder (available on all your devices), additional synced folders, and a cloud drive that enables you to store anything in the cloud without keeping it synced to a computer. This enables you to make full use of CloudMe with only a browser and no connected computers, through its mobile applications alone or as a combination with computers, phones, and TV apps. Many competing solutions make no sense to use if you do not connect a computer, they sync one folder and does not allow you to create folders in the cloud that are not synced to a computer. Such services are somewhat easier to use, but the drawback is that everything you put in the cloud will end up on all your devices.

With CloudMe you choose what to sync to each device, allowing you to use CloudMe as an extended hard drive for a computer with limited space, and avoid getting all your personal stuff on your work computer.

Take advantage of that CloudMe is one of the cloud storage services available on most types of devices. Example; iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux, GoogleTV, Samsung SmartTV, WD TV, Microsoft Storage Server, CloudTop, WebDAV, and web browsers.

The CloudMe service is operated by CloudMe AB company, located in Sweden.

CloudMe was founded by Daniel Arthursson in 2012.

Twitter CLI – a command-line power tool for Twitter. The CLI takes syntactic cues from the Twitter SMS commands, but it offers vastly more commands and capabilities than are available via SMS.

Features:
– Deep search: Instead of using the Twitter Search API, which only goes back 6-9 days, t search fetches up to 3,200 tweets via the REST API and then checks each one against a regular expression.
– Multi-threaded: Whenever possible, Twitter API requests are made in parallel, resulting in faster performance for bulk operations.
– Designed for Unix: Output is designed to be piped to other Unix utilities, like grep, comm, cut, awk, bc, wc, and xargs for advanced text processing.
– Generate spreadsheets: Convert the output of any command to CSV format simply by adding the –csv flag.
– 95% C0 Code Coverage: Well tested, with a 2.5:1 test-to-code ratio

Twitter API v1.1 requires OAuth for all of its functionality, so you’ll need a registered Twitter application.
A mobile phone number must be associated with your account in order to obtain write privileges.

The project developer is Erik Michaels-Ober.

Amazon Silk – a next-generation web browser available only on Kindle Fire tablets and phones. Built on a split architecture that divides processing between the client and the Amazon cloud, Silk is designed to create a faster, more responsive mobile browsing experience.

Unlike other browsers, Amazon Silk has the vast capacity of Amazon Web Services (AWS) behind it. Using AWS, Amazon Silk analyzes aggregate web traffic patterns, preprocesses pages, and applies predictive algorithms to determine the fastest way to deliver content to the device.

To minimize latency and page load times, Amazon Silk routes requests through remote proxy servers powered by Amazon EC2. These cloud servers provide high-performance connection speeds and computing power not normally available to a mobile form factor.

Bower – a written in Mercury, a curses frontend for the Notmuch email system. Bower makes use of standard Linux utilities, so will likely require some work to work on other systems.

Bower is designed such that it can be run on the local machine but call out to notmuch on a remote machine (that holds your mail) via ssh. The advantage is that you can start helper programs on the local machine (e.g. a web browser or image viewer), and add or save attachments on the local filesystem, even if your mail archive is stored on a different machine.

Bower also keeps some centralized information in the notmuch configuration file ~/.notmuch-config. You may wish to tell bower about your Maildir hierarchy, namely where to place draft and sent messages.

Bower can look up addresses using the notmuch address command. Only addresses that appear in the From header of messages from the last year will be found. This restriction is for better performance, and also avoids finding stale email addresses.

You can send mail through one or more accounts defined in bower.conf. An account is selected by matching the From address on the message to the address on the account.

Bower can produce encrypted and/or signed PGP/MIME messages through GnuPG. Message decryption and signature verification are performed by notmuch. It is up to the user to configure GnuPG on the machines running bower or notmuch.
