Dropbox is a great application for sharing large files. I use it every day, especially with our clients that we create short videos for. These videos can be quite large files over 50mb which are impossible to email.

They start by coping your Facebook Profile and then sending friend requests to all your friends, because they know you they will just accept the invite and not think anything of it. I’m sure there’s a sinister motive behind all the work these hackers do and it can’t be good.
Or maybe you just want to hide your list of friends from spying… Continue reading
