MacVoices #13127: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Dropbox

Confused about cloud storage? Joe Kissell  to the rescue with his new ebook, Take Control of Dropbox. Joe talks to us about why Dropbox, and its freemium model, is at the top of the pecking order in this category, and what they are trying to do to stay there. Too many of us think of Dropbox as “just” storage in the cloud; Joe gives us a look at some of its other capabilities such as photo albums and document previews, and why some capabilities must be requested. This Take Control book also marks the start of an educational initiative for the series; Joe gives us the lowdown on that change, as well as a look at a new publishing workflow they are experimenting with.
