Mac users are familiar with .Mac, now called MobileMe. It’s online storage you can use to move files from one computer to another. It’s worked fine for me and I’ve used it to shuffle files between work, home and the MacBook.
But Dropbox does this trick better. It seems faster than .Mac. I can move a file from my iMac to my MacBook (2 feet away) faster with Dropbox than my little thumb drive. I also find it easier to share files in my “Public” folder. (Our Help Desk folks tell me FTP is a real bitch on Vista.)
I’ll keep paying for my .Mac account (for now) but I’m using Dropbox. Check it out.
Update: Sorry for bad link. Fixed. Thanks, Andy, for reporting error.
