Dropbox is BIG. The Dropbox application has become so big that the San Francisco Chronicle recently highlighted them in a feature article. It’s a cogent statement, acknowledging the massive success achieved by this SF Bay area digital titan of file storage. The article makes a terrific point in that people feel more secure saving their most cherished data with a company like Dropbox that isn’t as pervasive as behemoths Google, Microsoft or Apple. You know. Those bellwethers of the web, that along with providing their now indispensable services sometimes look an awful lot like that Big Brother fellow described in that iconic sci-fi book so many moons ago. Dropbox isn’t like those other choices. They are happy with their place in the file storage sun and wouldn’t dream of being naughty. Bottom line, it’s easy to feel warm and fuzzy about Dropbox. So let the fuzz fest begin! (Plus, Dropbox is also available for the iPad!)
Paperless: Lists + Checklists
Paperless: Lists + Checklists makes it a breeze to get and stay organized. In the old days when paper was the medium, one could be juggling numerous lists of facts and figures that became crumpled or got spilled on. When a strong wind gushed forth, days, weeks or longer of work could be blown all the way to Atlantis. Now we have Paperless to repair to. Use it. It may be sad but often the record of one’s entire existence on Earth is summed up on a mere list. Need an example, Barry Bonds hit more homeruns than any Major League baseball player ever, period?
Day One – Journal
Day One – Journal gives those that never kept a diary a chance to catch up. Parties that do keep regular diaries or other journals will be in hog heaven. In addition to syncing to Dropbox, Day One helps you summon up your recollections by also syncing to iCloud and Mac. It’s like having your own biographer along for the ride. It would have saved that General Petraeus fellow some grief. There is one thing missing that might help improve the app. To achieve partial if not total recall, a virtual self hypnosis course would be advantageous. It would assist those with poor memories for facts and the like.
