Today I want to show you how you keep the two services Dropbox and Google Drive in sync. The whole thing is easier than perhaps previously thought.
Both, Dropbox and Google Drive, create a local folder on your computer. The files in this folder are then known to be synchronized with the cloud and all connected devices. If you want to protect yourself from data loss, for example, and therefore want to use two systems in parallel, you would have to copy files (after creating or changing them) in both folders (the Dropbox and the Google drives) every time.
You can remedy yourself, by pointing the Dropbox folder into a subfolder of your Google Drive. This is very easy.
Today I want to show you how to create a blog article on Blogger.com/Blogspot.com with C#. For this you need first of all the Google.GData.Client.dll, which you can find inside the Google .Net API package.
You can download the API package here from Google. (The file is called Google_Data_API_Setup_2.2.0.msi (Please note that the version number – 2.2.0 – over time may change of course.)
If the download is complete, install the package, open a new project in Visual Studio and add a reference to the Google.GData.Client.dll.
The .dll file can be found in the installation directory of the API package. (Click on the link “add a reference” above, if you need help embedding .dlls into a Visual Studio project.)
If you have included the DLL, you can start already. Blog posts (aka articles) can be created as follows:
At first there was Facebook. But now there’s Google Plus. And yeah, I like it. But what is a social network without contacts? Probably nothing. But who thinks, Facebook contacts can be easily transfered to Google, is on the wrong way.
For a short time there was this plugin for the Chrome browser, named Friend Exporter, which has taken over the job very well. However, this was quickly blocked by Facebook. But there is another way that I want to show you below.
How to export your Facebook friends and import them in Google Plus
The workaround to import the contacts works with the help of Yahoo mail. If you have no account there, then you can just create one here. It’s free and takes less than 2 minutes.
You have a Yahoo mail account? Then you can just go on […]
