    On the latest podcast you noted frustration at loosing the iPhone unlimited data plan. I did not loose mine since I was grandfathered. Has something changed with AT&T for legacy users?

    Hey Adam,
    I use Back Blaze as my cloud back up and it’s worked fine for me. They have a little program you download that resides in your Settings software and there’s a slider that you can move around to decide how much bandwidth your dedicating towards uploading to their site. When I first started using Back Blaze I had a 120gb hdd in my white MacBook. Took me about a week to upload 60gb of data with the slider all the way over to the right to move the most bandwidth. Also left the MacBook on all the time and turned off the sleep function.
    I later bought a 500gb hdd for MacBook and have used 300+ gigs of it cause of my photography side business. I noticed last week that there were about 40 gigs it was needing to update so again I moved the slider over to allow maximum bandwidth for the back up and yesterday it told me I was completely up to date.
    Now if I can just remember to stay up to date with my local backups…
