Dropbox update for iOS adds higher fidelity previews for Word and PowerPoint documents

Cloud storage platform Dropbox has updated its iOS app today. Allowing users to access any file saved to their Dropbox from an iOS device, v3.3 can now offer search within Word and PowerPoint documents. Larger animated GIFs are supported, and improved caching allows the app to use less data and disk space.

When users open up the Dropbox app, the last viewed place is brought up for quick access. Free to download, the Dropbox app is available for iOS 7.0 or later.

HighPoint Technologies launches Thunderbolt 2 SATA adaptors, supports 8 eSATA devices

HighPoint Technologies has announced the launch of its new Thunderbolt 2 SATA adapters, offering a simple way to upgrade existing SATA storage for use with Thunderbolt 2 platforms. The RocketStor 6328L and 6324L storage adapters provide 20GB/s of transfer bandwidth, and are capable of supporting up to eight SATA hard drives or SSDs via eSATA and Mini-SAS connectivity. Storage devices hosted by RocketStor adapters do not have to share resources with other I/O devices, and so can operate at peak performance. Measuring 7 inches in size, the small design is suitable for a variety of workstation settings. The RocketStor 6324L - for 4 eSATA devices - is priced at $300, and the 6328L for 8 eSATA devices is priced at $400.
