We’ve refreshed the Dropbox mobile website! Posted by Jon Ying on September 08, 2011 It’s been a while (3 years, in fact!)

We’ve refreshed the Dropbox mobile website!

Since we last took a look at our mobile web interface — but better late than never! Today, we’re upgrading the mobile website experience for a bunch of devices, including iPhone, Android (2.1+), and Windows Phone 7 , so you can always have your Dropbox on the go. Our intern Cathy has single-handedly revamped the look and feel, added your favorite features from the Dropbox website, and tested thoroughly for a smooth experience. You’re awesome, Cathy! LOOK AND FEEL For starters, we’ve made the mobile web interface closely resemble what you might find natively on iPhone and Android. Search: Finally, you can search your Dropbox for that e-book that was such a pain to browse to!

WHAT’S NEXT In the future, we’ll be adding support for more devices, easier ways to share, referrals, and more actions for your files and folders. Some eye candy: Minus 簡易檔案上傳下載免費空間,單檔200MB容量10GB. 「Minus」是一個去年開始崛起的線上免費空間服務,一開始它鎖定照片線上分享的需求,讓用戶直接拖曳相片到瀏覽器裡就能上傳相簿,而Minus簡單易用的操作風格也搏得了很多用戶的目光。

接著Minus開始慢慢的進化,能夠接收各種檔案之餘也能預覽多種文件圖檔,並且加入了更好的管理、分享功能,讓自己朝著線上檔案分享社群的需求邁進。 當然,更重要的是Minus的檔案上傳下載限制也不斷放寬,目前不需登入就能上傳200MB以內檔案並立刻分享。 而如果註冊帳戶後,則可擁有總容量10GB的空間來分類存放各種內容(官網上雖然說註冊後可以上傳2GB以內的檔案,但我這邊嘗試超過200MB時總是會失敗)。 而且更棒的是Minus提供了多種平台的簡易上傳管理工具,包含Windows、Mac、Linux的上傳軟體,以及支援Android、iPhone的檔案管理App,我們可以透過這些工具簡易快速的分享檔案。 相比其它類似服務,Minus在單檔上傳大小、檔案分享便利性上都有著自己的優勢。 即使不需登入,也可以透過Minus上傳檔案並分享。 而登入Minus後,就可以擁有個人的檔案管理空間把各種檔案分類存放。 另外推薦可以下載安裝Minus的桌面端軟體,以後只要把想上傳的檔案拖曳到常駐的Minus圖示上,就會自動開始上傳。 拖曳時除了單檔,也可以直接拖曳整個資料夾,或是一次圈選多個檔案拖曳,都能立刻開始上傳。 上傳後的檔案,如果是文件或圖片,基本上都支援內容預覽的功能。 我們可以修改資料夾的名稱,並且在同一個資料夾裡上傳多個檔案,或是在同一個相簿裡上傳多張圖片。 後續我們可以直接分享「整個資料夾的連結」,這樣朋友就能進入資料夾中看到並下載所有檔案。 在資料夾管理畫面右邊設定這個資料夾要公開(Public)或私密(Private),設定為私密的資料夾,必須知道網址的人才能進入。

我們可以隨時在資料夾裡上傳新檔案,朋友進入資料夾後可以選擇單一檔案下載,也可以直接打包下載所有資料夾裡的內容。 而在「Shortlink」中就能看到資料夾分享連結。 回到自己的「Dashboard」頁面,可以看到已經上傳的所有資料夾。 前面有提到Minus的目標是建立一個檔案分享社群,所以它的檔案分享著重在資料夾式的群組分享。 另外在Minus中我們還可以追蹤其他用戶,並且看到其他用戶設定成「公開」的資料夾與檔案,還能在對方上傳新公開檔案時獲得通知。 小結: Backify Gives 512GB of Unencrypted Online Backup Storage for Free.

The History of Digital Storage [INFOGRAPHIC] The whirring hard drives that once occupied entire university labs held but a fraction of the data we carry in our pockets every day — and that's only 50 years of progress.

The History of Digital Storage [INFOGRAPHIC]

Today, as we move further into the cloud, and witness the latest and greatest pocket media devices, we thought it fitting to take a look back at how far we've come on our quest to store as much information in as little space as possible. Infographic research and design by Mike Vasilev.
