Forget Dropbox, I just heard that Box.com gives you 50gig for free upon signup. I just signed up and it seems like I got it. Pretty cool:
Box lets you store all of your content online, so you can access, manage and share it from anywhere. Integrate Box with Google Apps and Salesforce and access Box on mobile devices. Learn More
But I wonder: how can they do it? Is storage so cheap now? Yahoo gives 100Gig free with Flickr.com.
And I also wonder, who needs 50gig free for non commercial use on Box.com? My first idea was to fill it up with movies, tv shows and so on.
But then I got to thinking: what if box.com is a big front, a magnet, or honeypot if you will, for pirated content? What if the entertainment industry, or even the FBI was behind it? Not that I myself have any such pirated stuff, but I hear that the FBI spends a lot of time trying to track down and shut down such sites.
What do you think?
