New Service Improves Cloud Storage Usage on Mobile Devices

Zhang and a team of Binghamton University researchers designed and developed StoArranger, a service to intercept, coordinate and optimize requests made by mobile apps and cloud storage services. StoArranger works as a “middleware system,” so there is no change to how apps or an iPhone or Android-device run, just improved performance of both the device and the network overall. Essentially, StoArranger takes cloud storage requests—either to upload a file or to open a file for editing—and orders them in the best way to save power, get things completed as quickly as possible and minimize the amount of data used to complete the tasks.

But what if making, sharing, liking and commenting on photos was part of the curriculum instead of a forbidden activity?

A new app created by a group of Cornell University students offers to help patients stay connected to their memories – and thus to their friends and family – and perhaps will even help them keep a conversation going.
