    Dropbox

    Hello guys

    I'd like to recommend you this file hosting service.

    It's possible to increase your space inviting people to the service.

    For every new member you invited you get 250MB extra

    Dropbox is a Web-based file hosting service operated by Dropbox, Inc. that uses cloud computing to enable users to store and share files and folders with others across the Internet using file synchronization. It was founded in 2007 by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi as a Y Combinator startup.

    There are both free and paid services, each with varying options. In comparison to similar services, Dropbox offers a relatively large number of user clients across a variety of desktop and mobile operating systems. There are a total of 10 clients, including versions for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (official and unofficial),as well as versions for mobile devices, such as Android, Windows Phone 7, iPhone, iPad and BlackBerry, and a web-based client for when no local client is installed. Dropbox uses the freemium financial model and its free service provides 2 GB of free online storage. Users who refer Dropbox to others can gain up to 8 GB of free storage.The service's major competitors include Box.net, Windows Live SkyDrive, Ubuntu One, SugarSync, Mozy, ZumoDrive, SpiderOak and Wuala.

    I've been told it's awesome sauce for those who like simplicity and having their files wherever there's Internet access, however.

    Create an ad-hoc network with my netbook (which goes everywhere I go), then FTP the files to my phone. Profit.

    i use wuala when i have to use a service like that.

    i used to use dropbox, i don't believe in the company themselves - plus the security issues this year are doing them no favours...

    Dropbox security fubar infuriates customers ? The Register
    Dropbox 'insecure and misleading' ? crypto researcher ? The Register
    Security researcher warns over Dropbox authentication security flaw ? The Register

    I honestly don't like it. Yes, it's easy, it's simple, it's popular and it works; but is annoying, insecure and simple minded.
    I HAD to use it once and it ended up downloading every single file in the folders without asking me. I kept cursing my ISP for the slow download rates until I realized that crap had been downloading 4gb of data.
    I am using SVN to work, RDC to access remote computers and my tablet to carry files.
