Thumb drives are great for saving work-in-progress and making those files portable and available on any computer that may be at hand.  But, have you ever carefully saved that precious file, only to find that you left the thumb drive behind in your home or office computer?  Enter Dropbox, the cloud’s file-storage tool for WindowsMacLinux,  iPad,  iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry.

Any file you save to Dropbox also saves to your computers, phones and the Dropbox website.  Keep documents private or send a link to share collaborative projects or photo albums in your public folder.   2GB of space is free and up to 100GB is available by subscription.  Give Dropbox a try and you’ll discover that the cloud isn’t just a bunch of fluff!
