Cloud-based file storage wünderkind!
I have been using Dropbox for almost two years now, in both my professional and personal life. I use it so much that I now rarely store any documents on my local “My Docuements” folder, but most everything goes into Dropbox. Started in 2007 by MIT graduates, it quickly gained a strong following. They run on the “Freemium” model, which grants new users a free allocation of 2GB of cloud based storage. Users are able to earn more storage by referring new users and through other, more fun events they stage throughout the year. Last year, they held a large scavenger hunt throughout the internet for prizes and free storage space. Overall, it is a strong model and many companies are starting to implement this structure.
