You know Dropbox, right (if not, head on to get it here)? I totally love that tool. I mean, you nearly don't notice its presence and actually that's what I love so much. It is totally intuitive, you don't have to know anything, just run that daemon in the back and you can be sure you have your files synched and backed up.But beside "just" synching between OSs and any kind of devices you could imagine there are much more interesting use cases about how people use Dropbox. Here are some of them (I'll update this post to add more as I find them).
Have you ever wanted to print something from your iPhone, or needed to print something on your office printer from your netbook at home? Here’s how you can make Dropbox into a quasi virtual print server.Just imagine, this would allow you to download a document from the web on your android phone and directly print it.
Say you want to download a torrent on your home computer, but you’re away from home. Sure, you could just take a laptop and download it on that, but that’s hardly ideal most of the time. So how do you accomplish this?
