Submission + - Dropbox wants to replace your hard disk (pcpro.co.uk) 1

Barence writes: Dropbox has kicked off its first developer conference with the stated goal of replacing the hard disk. "We are replacing the hard drive," said Dropbox CEO Drew Houston. "I don’t mean that you’re going to unscrew your MacBook and find a Dropbox inside, but the spiritual successor to the hard drive is what we’re launching."

The new Dropbox Platform includes tools for developers that will allow them to use Dropbox to sync app data between devices. The company's new APIs will also make it easier for app developers to include plugins that save to Dropbox, or choose files stored in the service for use within apps.

  • Dropbox wants to store all data. That'll translate into more business. I think I'll keep my private data on my hard drive. Thanks anyways, Dropbox.
