The Cleverest Ways to Use Dropbox That You're Not Using

The Cleverest Ways to Use Dropbox That You're Not Using
@Platypus Man: Do you have an iPhone, BlackBerry or an Android phone? KeePass (a highly-recommended password management app) is available for many platforms. Including the above mentioned phones, Windows, Mac & Linux. I also only have 1 computer, but I use KeePass on both my desktop and Android™ phone (I have a heavily modded/rooted NexusOne). Aside from my passwords file, I sync a few critical apps. I actually don't use more than 10MB of my DropBox space :) Flagged @OrganizedFellow: Well, when I originally wrote this, I didn't, but I have an Android phone now.

Fiber-optic speeds achieved over copper lines (PhysOrg.com) -- Bell Labs, Alcatel-Lucent's research arm, has demonstrated industry record broadband download speeds of up to 300 Megabits per second using two traditional twisted pair copper telephone lines. The achievement could extend the use of copper-based broadband networks, which are in wide use around the world, and it could provide another means of providing faster broadband in areas where fiber-optic and other cable technologies are unavailable. French telecommunications giant Alcatel-Lucent said the speeds achieved would enable service providers to use the existing copper-based infrastructure to satisfy demand for fast broadband for home and business users for many years to come. Achieving faster speeds is important for Internet service providers who want to compete with the fundamentally different technology used by cable companies. The demonstration used DSL (digital subscriber line) phantom mode, which was developed in 1986 as an analog telephony technique.

Dropbox Forms Is the Easiest Way to Let Anyone Send a File to Your Dropbox Account Yeah, I just tried this out and I don't like the way it works. The upload form you create sends the file to JotForm first, who then copies it into your Dropbox account. So not only are you limited by the 50MB Filesize and 100MB JotForm quota, but you're adding a point of failure to an otherwise robust system. If either service were to change something, or if JotForm fails somehow, it's possible an uploaded file would fail to be copied to Dropbox, which could be a very bad thing if you're waiting for an important file. And if your JotForm submission quota is full, then that file won't even be uploaded to JotForm, much less to Dropbox.

Review - Why You Should Use Dropbox Dropbox isn’t a new entrant to the backup and sync scene. It’s been sometime since it was introduced, and has already received rave reviews and accolades from various technology sites and journals. I knew about the tool since the day it came into existence. But I didn’t jump on the opportunity to try it out. That was probably because I had my own backup and sync system which included various tools, and I was quite satisfied with that.

Socrative: Turn Student SmartPhones into Clickers » Technology for Educators [Update: See a more recent post on new features.] This is the tool I’ve been waiting for. Socrative turns your students’ smartphones into a powerful student response system. It’s like PollEverywhere (see this earlier post), but with greater flexibility and ease-of-use, the ability to attach student names to electronic quizzes, and free – even when you have more than 30 students. This promises to be a real challenge to the makers of student response systems. You and your students have options for accessing Socrative.
