Dropbox Online Personal Storage

Remember how cool it was when you got your first USB Thumb Drive.  “Wow, I can have 2GB of storage on that tiny key stuffed in my pocket!”   This was a great leap forward from having to ‘Burn a CD’ the previous cool thing.

There are some disadvantages to USB keys:

  • You can lose them.  This is a real concern as far as HIPPA security concerns.  If you have anything patient related on that key when it is lost (and it is not encrypted), you have a HIPPA violation.
  • You can forget them.   Who hasn’t wanted to get something from or copy something to their USB key, only to realize they don’t have it with them.
  • They cost money.  Not much money though, a 2GB key only costs about $10 today.

Well, the next Cool thing is here to replace the USB Key.  Enter the one of the first really useful Cloud apps.   Online personal storage is a folder you keep up in the Cloud.  No more USB Key in your pocket, your Data lives up in the Cloud (somewhere) and you sync it down (via the Internet) to as many of your personal devices as you like.
