Dolly Drive brings cloud storage to Apple’s Time Machine

Dolly Drive will be featured as part of MacWorld’s Indie Spotlight. The event takes place January 27-29th.

Dolly Drive works with Time Machine to locally duplicate, store online and restart access to your digital world through online storage. Dolly lets MacBook laptop users back-up and recover their data through Time Machine anywhere they travel. Mac desktop users can either skip buying an external hard drive or use both for a hybrid cloud solution.

“Time Machine is one of Mac users favorite applications, yet it’s been left behind in the push to the cloud. That limitation is now over.” said Dolly Drive chief architect Anthony Palermo. “Dolly Drive lets you finally use Time Machine free of constraints and with its easy external hard drive integration, provides a complete back-up solution.”

Dolly will launch in five storage offerings from 10 to 500 gigs and starting at $5 per month. Dolly Drive Pro will launch for the business world and include professional level service and administration features.

Dolly Drive is a product of Cirrus Thinking, an online storage and application development company based in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Boca Raton.

MacWorld Expo has traditionally been one of the premier conferences for Apple enthusiasts. The expo lost some steam after Apple pulled out of the conference in 2010. Despite Apple no longer sponsoring the event, it remains a prime conference for Apple peripheral vendors.

The expo will feature a variety of training sessions, including how to use an iPad, tutorials on various third party software such as Photoshop and features a perfomance by Sinbad.

How to use voice in Character.AI

The Character.AI chatbot service includes several features to optimize your AI communication experience. The primary function of Character.AI is a text-to-speech chatbot that allows you to type queries and read responses from various characters including modern and historical figures, popular fictional characters, and helpful personas, among others. However, you can also implement a voice feature that allows you to listen to responses from the characters in a human-like voice. This can work as an accessibility option, or if you simply don’t feel like reading your responses.

Character.AI allows you to enable voice options on the third-party characters you’re interacting with and also lets you upload custom voices for characters on your own account. Here are the ins and outs of working with voices on Character.AI.

But now that's changing.
