Now many people would want to share their photos and videos taken during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
For example, a dad and a mom took many family photos with a digital camera on the eve of Christmas, while their eldest son used his DV camcorder to record the family reunion. The second son, who could not return home for Christmas, showed how he was doing with his camera phone.
After the Christmas and New Year holidays, the youngest daughter of the family returning to school began to think hard of how to collect all the stuffs and share them with her parents and brothers. She found it laborious and time-consuming because she had to go home with a flash disk to get the photos taken by her parents while asking her eldest brother to have his film burnt to a disk and mail the disk to her. Because of email size limits, she also had to ask her second brother to divide his photos of 100MB into several files and then send them to her one by one.
She could not share the photos and film with her whole family without sorting out and organizing what she received. She spent one month to get the job done.
But is sharing that difficult?
ASUS WebStorage makes everything much easier. With ASUS WebStorage, sharing is smarter, simpler, and more simultaneous to shorten the distance among people.
