Backups of your computer’s files have to be trustworthy. If you can’t trust your backups, they’re not really backups.

The reason Stefan created Arq Backup for the Mac back in 2009 was because he couldn’t find an online solution that felt like real backup. Most online backup providers were and continue to be vague about where the data are stored, how durable the storage is, and how sustainable the business model is.

Arq does everything it can to provide a completely trustworthy backup solution.

Why should you trust Arq?

  • Arq is open. It stores versioned, de-duplicated backup records in a format that’s documented.
  • Arq is private. Backup records are encrypted with a password that only you know. The password never leaves your computer, and your data is encrypted before ever leaving your computer.
  • Arq gives you control. Your backup data is stored in your own cloud account, SFTP server, or Continue reading “Arq: Trustworthy Backup [Sponsor]”

Being comfortable is part of getting a good night’s sleep, and a big part of that is your pillow. Hullo Pillow is a buckwheat pillow that allows you to adjust its shape and thickness to perfectly support your head and neck reducing pressure on your muscles, nerves, and discs.

Buckwheat pillows, which have been used for centuries, are popular in Japan, and they’re a staple of fancy hotels that offer ‘pillow menus.’ If you haven’t tried one before, a buckwheat pillow is different from standard foam or down pillows. It’s a little like a bean bag that allows you to adjust the pillow’s shape and thickness to your liking.

Feather and foam pillows get hot, humid, and compress into a thin pancake requiring you to fold it in half or use multiple pillows to support your head and neck. That doesn’t happen with Hullo.
