Dropbox gives you 2GB of storage when you sign up. iCloud offers 5GB. While there are plenty of reasons to prefer those services, the storage space they offer is way less than what you can get with Box today. Usually Box only gives you 5GB of storage for free, but if you sign up with a new email address, Box will give you 25GB of cloud storage for life (or until the end of the Box enterprise.
Box has run offers like this in the past, notably giving users 50GB of free storage if they signed up with an iOS or an Android device. But those promotions are over and they required you to own a specific gadget. The beauty of today’s promotion is that anyone with a web browser and email address can get it. It’s only for new signups, so if you’ve already got an account, you’ll have to make a new one. Still — free’s a damn good price for a large storage locker up in the cloud. [Box.net] Kif Leswing
