    Ever heard of OneDrive? Chances are, if you use Hotmail, you have. OneDrive is Microsoft’s Cloud Storage solution and after I made the move a few months ago, I’m now officially a fan. If you signup you receive a mere 5GB for free, that used to be 15GB, and compared to Google’s 15GB you ask me why should I move? Well, there are a few ways to up your GB’s game with OneDrive. I actually received a 200GB free code with my external hard drive purchase recently, so that was nice.

    Not many of us like to think about retirement. Sure, many of us are looking forward to being relieved of the burden of our jobs. But retiring at an old age doesn’t seem like the optimal way to do it! Still, retirement age is something many of us will have to deal with. Avoiding the issue can put you at a severe disadvantage in your later years.

    It’s important that you don’t allow control of your pension to slip out of your hands. This is a mistake a lot of people make. They leave it up to other vague forces to deal with their retirement funds. And when the day comes where they need to collect the savings, they may find themselves filled with regret.
