    I find it odd that after people start loving SkyDrive and Google Drive,
    Apple drops iDisk. Looking at the number of people adopting SkyDrive and Google Drive, and box.com it seems to be a good service for allowing
    any type of files storage. (a replacement for flash USB drives?).

    iCloud is too apps centric, and restrictive, thus the popularity of SkyDrive and Google Drive.

    I absolutely love Dropbox and have come to rely on it. However, it is not a storage service. Dropbox is a cloud-based synchronization utility. It synchronizes files in the [local] Dropbox folder on each of your linked Macs, Windows computers, and mobile devices.
