    Storing sensitive data in the cloud has always been questionable. Over the weekend we learned just how "sensitive" that data can be. Just in case you were on vacation, unplugged from technology, and haven't heard the news, reportedly dozens of celebrities had their iCloud accounts hacked and nude photos stolen and posted publicly on the Internet. While some may celebrate this as a triumph, it's really a horrifying violation of privacy. How would you feel if the leaked images were of your spouse, your child, or your parent? Basically, what's being reported is that some "celebrities" used ...

    It's hard not to commend Google for the job the company has been doing in enhancing the services we consume through Android and even iOS at times. We've seen frequent updates to services like Google Now and YouTube over the last couple of weeks, and today Gmail takes a turn at some enhancements. The company is pushing an update that will provide you with a couple of new enhancements, including some Google Drive integration. The way Gmail and Google Drive will work together going forward is that you can attach Google Drive files easily while you're composing an email. Google will then ...

    Three weeks back we learned about a problem that was affecting new owners of the HTC One M8, but only those picking up the phone for AT&T. You see, HTC had promoted the One M8 as coming with a number of perks, including access to 50GB of free Google Drive storage for the next two years. We certainly wouldn't buy the One M8 solely because of this promotion, but it was a nice touch, so why not take advantage of it? Problem was, the deal didn't seem to be working, and HTC confirmed that a “minor technical error” was getting in the way of redemption. HTC promised a fix in mid-May, and ...

    Late last month, we saw Google release stand-alone Docs and Sheets apps, with the promise of a third, Slides, on its way. These were designed to give users extended document creation and editing abilities beyond those already present in Google Drive. Sure, the idea of juggling multiple apps instead of doing everything from Drive might sound a little cumbersome, but we always like seeing companies giving smartphone users more options. As it turns out, though, the introduction of Docs and Sheets isn't so much an alternate way to work with their respective files, but the only one going ...

    Update: Apps also available for Android. Remember, the existing Drive app used to be Docs (and it's still using the "com.google.android.apps.docs" identifier), but this marks the return of Docs to Android as a stand-alone app. Update 2: Now we've got Google's official statement, along with word that a third app, Slides, is on its way soon. Is Google feeling a little pressure from Microsoft with the release of Office for the iPad last month? It used to be that if you wanted to access documents stored in Google's cloud from iOS devices, you'd fire-up Google Drive, or make do with Google's ...

    Google is having a busy day when it comes to Android apps, with update after update hitting the Play Store. A little earlier we told you about the changes to Google Search, and what that meant for the Nexus 5's launcher, but that's merely the tip of the iceberg. We've also spotted updates going out for a number of additional apps, so let's take a moment to look at what's new: Maps's official changelog just mentions bugfixes, but it also delivers changes to how it presents Offers, and routing controls get some expanded options for both preferences and things to avoid. Drive sees the arrival ...

    Google is on a bit of a tear lately, updating apps and services across the board. We follow up the recent changes to Google+ with an update for the Android Drive app, giving the program a new look. The Now-ification of Google apps continues with Drive's new card-based layout. You can swipe these around to navigate through your shared files, and there's a new quick preview mode. For those of you who like to work with documents on your phone – and not just view them – the new Drive gains some additional editing tools. When working with spreadsheets, you can now adjust cell alignment and ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we go through the recent changes to Google Drive, which do matter for most of us. Then we talk about the Galaxy Note II and its appearance in Verizon's network. Microsoft later shows us their ugliest application yet with the Outlook.com service for Android. Then we continue with Microsoft, though this time we talk about Windows Phone 7.8 and it's promised release season, because as always, they didn't include specific dates. We end today's show talking about Steve Ballmer's recent chat regarding Windows Phone 8 sales, which are apparently better, even ...
