    For those of you who are experienced with Dropbox, it is an amazing FREE filesharing/cloud based solution among your various devices. Dropbox has been integrated in the PS3s new upgraded browser and currently works with all types of media. Upload from the PS3 to Dropbox may still cause the system to freeze. The Dropbox website now is accessible via PS3 also (previously was disabled).



    To quote:

    With the release of PS3 firmware v4.10, gamers across the PlayStation Network are now not only scurrying around their consoles to find new, and often hidden features added by Sony, but are also exploring the upgraded web browser. However, with that upgraded browser now comes support for what could be considered a killer app on the PS3 Dropbox support.

    If theres one thing that many, many PS3 owners have been longing for, it was Dropbox support on their consoles. For those not familiar with the service, Dropbox allows users to upload files from their computers (movies, music, etc.), and then download those files from just about anywhere, and now that anywhere includes the PlayStation 3. Dropboxs main site was previously unusable on the PlayStation 3, but is now fully functional (except for uploads from the PS3 itself, which may cause the system to freeze).

    We tested everything from music to movies, all downloaded with no problems at all, and boy were the downloads fast! This is one incredible addition to the PS3 arsenal, and may very well have gone unnoticed by many. With Dropbox offering 2GB free just for signing up, folks will no longer have to worry about portable hard drives and USB thumb drives to move their content to their PS3 how cool is that!?

    The cloud is here strong and making a quiet revolution as we speak.....Dan Dodge (QNX'S CEO), has some really good discussions on the cloud written and on video if you ever care to track them down scattered across the net and QNX.com.

    It would be sweet if you could get more then 2GB free storage from Dropbox. At least that's the case with BB HH's

    If you join with someone else's link you get another 250mb.
    Also, if you d/l the beta and upload 4.5GB of pics/videos you will get an additional 5GB FREE SPACE and you can then delete the pics/videos and keep the space!

    I posted the link in the OFF TOPIC section, but just google it

    And as I always do, please think about what you are placing/sharing in the cloud. Do NOT put any sensitive data/information in the cloud, especially if it relates to your employer.

    Public information is one thing, but any restricted or regulated data should make you think twice.

    And don't forget the following with respect to cloud computing:
