Dropbox and a billion files a day.

Simplify your life.That's what the DropBox strap-line tells you when you arrive at DropBox.com. And, they're true to their word. I use DropBox every day. I upoad work documents, personal documents some of my reading material. And it's everywhere. On my iPad, phone, Mac, PC. I have stopped thinking about where my files are,. An element of my life, has indeed, been simplified.

It first seemed that it was mid-size business that grasped the opportunity for reducing the amlunt of servers, expensive air-conditionig units and staff that were required to manage their corporate data, then tech powerhouses like Apple, Amazon and Google began to keep our information - our spreadsheets, our contact lists - safe in the cloud so we could access them anytime - from anywhere on a host of different devices. Apple introduced iTnes Match - so you buy your music on one device and it appears across all your others. DropBox came along and connected the average iPad and Android user with the cloud. Marketeers went mad - IT managers embraced it - ill-informed execs said they needed it.
