Most of us who compulsively buy power tools don't have the luxury of unlimited space. Here are a few ideas for getting the most out of storage space in workshops of any size.

An article at MIT Technology Review says some early work at Microsoft Research is looking at how to encode documents in DNA. The aim is to have some sort of working model by the end of this decade, with the tagline "Your Storage with DNA" being bandied about.
I'm a pretty organised person — except when it comes to my pantry. I can never remember what I have and what I've run out of, and finding things in there is a lost cause. I finally decided to get it under control, hoping I wouldn't find an embarrassing number of the same item* stuffed in the shelves. Spoiler: I did.
One of the biggest hassles with having multiple computing devices is being able to access your data in the office, at home and when travelling. Back in the 1990s, when I started working in IT, Microsoft had a crack at this with the Briefcase feature that was part of Windows 95 but it was pretty poor.
By the mid to late 2000s, cloud storage services came to the fore, making it easy to access up to date versions of our workfiles wherever and whenever we wanted. But how do we use these services and get the most out of them?
Businesses, large and small, have access to more data than ever before. Cloud services, ranging from Dropbox to AWS offer as much storage as you can use and afford. But that doesn’t mean local storage isn’t still a good option. Synology’s DS916+ NAS aims to bridge the gap between the cloud and local storage by offering the best of both worlds - local storage that delivers lots of cloud-like services.
Despite the popularity of SSDs for desktop and notebook devices, there’s still a strong market for traditional spinning hard drives. While we always need the fastest storage possible, there’s a balancing act between performance, storage volume and price. Which explains why Seagate has released a 12TB 3.5-inch drive.
I'm a sucker for a good factory tour. I recently had the opportunity to visit two of Seagate's facilities in Singapore. Woodlands is a plant where Seagate manufactures hard drives while Shugart, named for the company's founder, was focused on testing drives. I thought I knew a bit about storage but those tours were an eye-opener. Here's what I learned.
Closets are great because you can shove all of your junk in them, shut the door and it's like that junk doesn't even exist. Except it does and, eventually, your closets will overflow. If it's time to declutter your closet so you can actually find stuff to wear, we've got you covered.
