Parallels notifies Desktop 8 for Mac users that software will not run on Yosemite public beta
Parallels has released a service notification for users of Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac. Users considering installing the OS X Yosemite public beta 10.10 will not be able to launch Windows applications, or directly use files through Parallels Desktop 8. Parallels Desktop allows for Windows applications to run on OS X without rebooting in systems up to and including 10.9 Mavericks. In order to avoid service disruption, Parallels encourages users to upgrade to version 9 of its software. Upgrading is available for $50, with Parallels Desktop 9 for new users priced at $80.
Keeper Secure File Storage now available for iOS

Secure File Storage allows users to upload and drag-and-drop important files, photos and videos to Keeper's cloud storage, or "vault." Keeper describes itself as a "zero-knowledge" security provider, with uploaded files encrypted during the process, with only the user holding the encryption key for privacy purposes. Files can be securely shared with other Keeper users between vaults. Plans for Secure File Storage start at $10 per year for 10GB.
