In this era of fancy and flashy technology, it is not always that we stumble upon a discovery that has the potential to change the path the whole world treads. One of these seemingly rare developments has undoubtedly been the creation of cloud computing. An idea as old as the internet itself, it has come into its functional form only recently, and owing to the robust potential it has, every major brand associated in any way to the internet has had a go at it.
Google, Microsoft and apple and some of the biggest names offering cloud storage services as of now, and now to challenge them for the throne of the best, UCWeb has announced its very own cloud service, the UC Drive. The UC Drive, developed on the same fundamentals as the UC Browser before it, aims to give its users a remarkably efficient and swift experience of cloud computing.
It also offers a best in class 20 gigabytes of free storage memory to every registered user. The announcement of the UC Drive comes hand in hand with a chance to win exciting prizes. The registered users of the cloud service will receive a virtual ‘progress ball’ to fill.
Actions such as inviting a friend to use the cloud, saving a video or even a file to the cloud will result in progress in filling up the ball, and once a user manages to do that, he stands a chance of winning huge prizes. The contest has put up a long list of available prizes, which include 20 grams of solid gold, a Redmi K20 smartphone, JBL Go 2 and a variety of coupons from the likes of Swiggy, Myntra, OYO etc. With harmless daily tasks like ‘share the news with a friend’, ‘use search function 5 times’ etc, you keep earning, and little by little you move towards gold.
