If you’re a student or working professional that carries a USB key for whatever reason, you know how much of a nightmare it is when you misplaced that usb key on your way to that important event. Dropbox is here to save you. With Dropbox, you are able to have access to your files from almost anywhere– your pc, your phone or on their website. It now supports Windows, Mac, Linux, iPadiPhone, Android and BlackBerry. And to top it off, it is free to sign up!! You are given 2GB free to begin using their service with different options to increase that space. Dropbox also uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and AES-256 bit encryption to protect your files. If you click here to sign up, you’ll get a gift from me of an extra 250MB of free space. Install the pc software, follow the instructions and put a few files in your Dropbox to see how it’ll work with your phone. Come on, get to it!!
