Dropbox – Cloud Computing Made Simple

Here at AloeRoot, we’re becoming big fans of Dropbox, a service that offers 2GB of free file storage online. You create an account at dropbox.com, install some software on your computer, and then drag and drop files into your personal Dropbox – which sends the files to the Dropbox.com servers, effortlessly backing up your files to the “cloud”. You can then access your files from any computer, invite friends to use your folders, and pass documents and files around easily without the hassle of DVDs, thumb drives, or other clunky technology. Great idea! And if you need more storage space, you can upgrade your account.
