This is good information to know. I use dropbox is a purely cloud storage usage so I can share things with other people for different things. Only think I do not like about it and prefer Google docs over is the instant editing. I got documents have have 4 people as editors and we can all edit the same thing at the same time and while it does not happen often it is very useful tool when we are all trying to change the same document.
I know dropbox has its own way of managing that with making conflicting docs when multiple people are changing the same document. That is probably better for a corporate setting but for I would say my home use I still like Google docs.
Dropbox is stepping up as a direct competitor to google docs and other online based business solutions for document management.
I wonder whether this is alluding to whether Dropbox starts trying to cater primarily towards a business or consumer market?
My guess would be that Dropbox will continue in both markets. There's no reason not to, and when people are using it at home they're more likely to want to bring it in to work, too.
Well I look at this as something that go hand in hand. People use it at home and really like it then they will find a way to use it for work even if their job does not. If they use it for work then they will find something to use it for home use. I understand the corporate side probably has alot more money in it but if they just stop the consumer side they could see a pretty big hit and leave the door open for others.
This has been very helpful for my online business, good that the single sign-on is activated and I was able to login using one account at different devices.
