We’ve now been using Dropbox for 1 full year, are we impressed? HELL YEAH! I’d have to take that enthusiasm a step farther by saying that life without Dropbox looks retrospectively shallow. What do we use it for? What we do is Blog for other people, we post words that others pen, edit, admin and generally keep the smiles on the faces of our clients.
What do we use Dropbox for? In the main Dropbox seems to have carved out a niche in our lives as a photo repository. Where we used to get a jumble of email attachment chucked at us, we now have a superbly organised system – this is a notable fact, most of our bloggers would be blogging solo if they could get their act together – in fairness our bloggers tend to be lifestyle, not techy based humans, Dropbox works a treat, they love it so we love it!
We acknowledge that 98 per cent of the online world has come across Dropbox, clearly this is aimed at the 2 percent who haven’t as well as the small number of folk who simply haven’t taken the baby steps to installing this wonderfilled, lifesaving hosting service :: Read the full article »»»»

Google yesterday announced its DropBox killer, Google Drive, pledging every user 5GB of free storage. That’s a pretty good deal, combined with other Google products – Google Docs, soon to be Picassa and Gmail – as well as some comprehensive search capabilities, Google Drive appears to be a pretty close to taking over the galaxy that is cloud, for the personal user at least.
But there’s another story here. Products such as Google Drive and DropBox are becoming more frequently released, more importantly, cheap. It costs less than $10 to back up 100GB.
Punters truly have no excuse, the concept of accidentally deleting a file should be a thing of the past. Expect to see a DropBox Teams competitor any day now. Google truly seems to have our online world stitched
UPDATE :: OK, not happy Jan!! I feel slightly duped, it seems that Google has Given at the same Time as They’ve Taken Away!! On loading Google Drive I’ve lost my Google Docs account, well perhaps an exaggeration, my Google Docs space – some 1.7GB – has been integrated into my new Google Drive – 5 GB – a gain of 3.3Gb :: Read the full article »»»»

Our most favorite cloud app – Dropbox – has unveiled a new photo uploading feature for Android smartphones, potentially sharpening its competition with Google, Apple, and a host of other companies battling to rule the burgeoning market for online storage solutions. With a single click, the feature will allow users to wirelessly upload high-resolution pictures straight from their smartphones onto the virtual “cloud,” where the files can be accessed from any computer or mobile device. Dropbox only offers users storage space – the service will not provide any photo editing or manipulation features, like those provided by Google’s Picasa program.
Instead, CEO Drew Houston said, the company hopes that third-party developers will step in and do precisely that. Houston said the new development represented a small but significant step toward cultivating a thriving “ecosystem” around the Dropbox platform. In the case of photos, for example, the company will encourage independent developers to write programs to touch up photos. “Facebook tied your friends and your social graph into this ecosystem that offered all these services,” Houston said. “We envision similar things with Dropbox.” He added: “It’s a major theme for us going forward this year.” Read the full article »»»»
