DropBox vs. SkyDrive?
I read the latest Office for Mere Mortals, specifically the part "Camera Upload".
This is just my take on it.
1: If you are so inclined to use DropBox there is an app for that for the WP7 from:neologics.eu this is on the Windows Market Place.
2: I must be missing something here, or I'm just plain stupid. But why would I want to use it (DropBox) Here is why I am asking:
A: Phone/Photos: Photos taken on my HTC Trophy Windows Phone upload to the Camera Roll in SkyDrive in less time that it took me to open up that SkyDrive folder.
A1: Photos taken with my Eye.fi Camera are also uploaded to the SkyDrive Eye.fi folder the minute I hit a Wifi location. Or not My choice.
B: All of my documents that I need are already in SKyDrive. and
C: New documents are uploaded when I save them to the SkyDrive app. <Ok on this one I have noticed that on occasion OneNote does take some time to sync when I make changes. Could be faster but I'm not complaining.
D: Beings that SkyDrive is a cloud application, it too is across they system (i.e) laptop, PC, Phone, tablet, etc. etc.
Did I read it correctly in that while Apple users have a cloud, they need a seperate app "Photo Stream" to upload their photos?
So please help me out here why would I want DropBox? Really!
I really am open minded here but like I said I don't get it.

I think you already answered your own question. You don't need it, unless you have/need an app that simply won't work with SkyDrive.Chuck
