If you check the Dropbox FAQ they tell you all about the techniques they use to protect your data. There comes a stage where you have to trust someone. I personally trust sites like Amazon and things like the iCloud and DropBox

And I am astounded by the number of people who don't value their privacy, and trust some third-party closed-source site to keep their data safe. If you want to keep your data private, make sure that /you/ encrypt it using known-good open source software before it leaves your machine.

Are there any special controls preventing virus writers from writing 3rd-party add-ons for things like dropbox? This seems like a mile-wide data security gap. I am astounded by the number of people who don't value their privacy, to the extent that they trust 'free' services above even modestly-priced alternatives. Mind you, I do have a Gmail account; but would definitely pay something towards it if I could see how that would make it better.

A few weeks ago, I got a request from my sister to store some files on my computer as a backup. She sent some pictures and videos, roughly 20+ gb, using an app called Binfer. I had to download the app and learnt in the process that this app does direct computer to computer file transfers and does not require uploading files anywhere. I did ask her why she would not use one of the so many cloud based sync/storage apps and her response was she does not trust the cloud. I guess new ways are appearing everday that make our life easier.

Hi Max, == Start SNIP == For example, it would be nice to not have to drag everything you wanted to backup into your DropBox folder … you sort of get used to having things where they are. == End SNIP == There are many add-ons available for Dropbox. I already use one called, "Dropbox Folder Sync addon", which does what you mention above. I have been using it for months for the reason you mentioned above an it works great! Download from here: http://satyadeepk.in/dropbox-folder-sync/ And, regarding the 2GB free limit... Remember to invite/refer your friends and relatives (and anyone that will listen) for additional free space - I am already up to 7.25GB of free space. Dropbox is GREAT! Thanks, Brian

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
