    I have a Tumblr blog up and going for my students, just so I can post what was covered during the day, the notes, powerpoint or keynote presentations, etc. I'm also trying the whole iBook Textbook thing but it will need to be updated so I need a good way for them to grab the latest version without dealing with the iBook store.

    What web service is best to use to have those files ready for download? I would love to be able to just post a link and have them download the file hopefully without having to create an account or anything.

    DropBox is the perfect solution. It's free for the first 2GB of storage.

    Oh. I didn't even know you could do that with Dropbox. Perfect solution since I have all my files on there anyway to transfer between my home Mac and my work Mac.

    Thanks guys!

    Yep. I use a dropbox account on all of my lab's computers, which is shared to all of my personal and work computers. Perfect solution.
