Throw your USB drive away*.
Dropbox is a free web based cloud computing storage/sharing tool that will most likely blow your mind. Sign up is free, and to begin you start out with 2 GB of space. More information about their pay plans can be found here. What makes Dropbox so friggin’ easy to use is their handy drag and drop way of handling file storage. You simply just drag and drop it into your Dropbox folder and BOOM! you can access it from any other computer either via the Dropbox website or the downloaded Dropbox file manager (I highly suggest this. It makes sharing and storage a heck of a lot easier)
We live in a time where we’re using many systems each day. I myself am juggling between two work computers, a Blackberry, and a laptop and iPad at home. I don’t really want to carry a USB drive in my pocket all day. Heck, the iPad doesn’t even want my stinking USB drive. Dropbox fixes all of that.
I highly recommend Dropbox for everyone. The sharing aspect of Dropbox gives it another dimension. If I drop something into Dropbox and share it with a friend, it’s there the next time they open up their Dropbox. Simple and effective.
If you wanna sign up for Dropbox, you can do so by clicking here (I must add this…clicking this link will let Dropbox know I referred you to them. All that this does is give me 250 MB of extra space for free. If you do this, I owe you. Thanks)
*Well, I don’t know if you should do that. But I’m not using my USB drive anymore. I haven’t found any need to.
