Dropbox Back In the News

Well, it hasn’t even been a month since I posted “Dropbox 2.0 for iOS Is Out”, and it seems Dropbox has made it back into the news.  Now, we see Business Insider stating that “A Company Called ‘Dropbox’ Is Taking Over The World”.  It seems that Steve Jobs once tried to buy the company and then disparaged it when they turned down his offer.

Dropbox has an interesting business model.  Basically, it spreads by giving away free space when users refer other users.  That way, it can capture a greater share of the population, and that means a greater potential for those who need more space and are willing to pay for it.

It isn’t a cakewalk, however.  The article points out that there is quite a bit of competition.  Who do you think will win out?
