Box in the Cloud | Dropbox Highlights

Dropbox is a familiar 2.0 cloud service, in that the more you use or refer, the more storage capacity and service you earn —very 2.0 ideologically, if you ask me. The more content you produce, the more you’re potentially worth.

Common limitations include HD video playback. I’ve experienced same.

Cost

Dropbox by Dropbox, Inc., is a “fremium” file-sharing and storage service that allows users to bring photos, docs and videos anywhere, and share them easily, i.e, via the Internet “cloud”. Dropbox services are tiered according to the fremium model I mentioned, as seen here. (Dropbox.com)

I chose Dropbox because I use it regularly, just as prescribed (file sharing/storage/accessibility and updates) for school and business.
