Move to Top Shortcut in iPhone

On an iPhone, flicking all the way back up to the top of a long Web page can be a real drag. Instead, a single tap on the status bar moves you to the top of a page. (The status bar is where the clock is.) This tip also works in other apps, like Mail, Contacts, etc.

CrashPlan PRO Now Available for Businesses

Send Article to a Friend

Code 42 Software has introduced CrashPlan PRO, a new backup software and service targeted at the SMB market (that’s “small and medium-sized businesses” for the less acronymically experienced). Joining CrashPlan+, designed for individual users backing up personal data from 10 or fewer computers, and CrashPlan PROe, designed for large enterprises with many hundreds or even thousands of computers, CrashPlan PRO is designed for businesses and other organizations running up to 200 computers. (For details about CrashPlan+, see “CrashPlan+ 3.0 Adds Features, Changes Pricing,” 7 December 2010.)

Like its sibling backup offerings, CrashPlan PRO provides a cross-platform (Mac/Windows/Linux/Solaris) subscription backup solution that can make both local and online backups. And, like CrashPlan+, CrashPlan PRO provides secure, encrypted backups to cloud-based servers and offers individual users restore capabilities from almost any location that has Internet access. However, unlike CrashPlan+, CrashPlan PRO enables administrators with relatively little IT experience to assign users and computers to a backup plan, monitor backup progress and statistics, and use a Web-based dashboard to manage an organization’s backups.

The cost of CrashPlan PRO varies depending on the number of computers being backed up and the amount of backup storage allocated. Businesses can choose between a plan that offers unlimited backups for a specific number of computers, or plans that share a specific backup storage allocation among an unlimited number of computers. To help customers figure out the best deal for their needs, CrashPlan offers a simple online tool that helps potential customers figure out the best available plans for a given business installation.

CrashPlan PRO is available in the United States and Canada now, with worldwide availability expected by the end of this year. A 30-day free trial is also available.
