The Inside Story of Dropbox

Send Article to a Friend

Victoria Barret of Forbes has written a charming piece about the rise of Dropbox, the cloud-based file sharing site that we and numerous others have come to rely on. Especially interesting is her telling of the meeting the Dropbox founders had with Steve Jobs, and their concern about what iCloud may become. (For the moment, they have little to worry about, since iCloud is for individuals syncing their own devices, whereas Dropbox also enables multiple people to collaborate seamlessly.)favicon follow link

The US$79 that I no longer pay for iDisk/MobileMe I will spend on Dropbox and still have a functional online storage space.
