1. Not really cool of HP and Box to offer 50GB of free space, yet cripple it with a 100mb file size limit.
2. #1 having been said, the intended use is clearly for photos, music and documents, for which a 100mb limit is not an issue.
3. Small kudos to box.net for not retro-actively crippling the large number of accounts that were 'accidentally' created with the 1GB limit. By the way, the difference between the two types of accounts is that the 1GB limit account is a full premium $20 per month account for free, while the intended 100mb limit account is the free lite account with the storage bumped to 50gb and the file size limit bumped to 100mb (normally 5gb/25mb).
4. Without a desktop sync client, I really can't find any good use for my box.net account. Getting any significant number of files on there is too difficult, and it doesn't meet my other cloud storage needs.
I used to be happy with Zumodrive, but recently it's completely stopped syncing on every PC I have; plus there's no TouchPad client, though the phone client appears to work ok on the touchpad (hardly ideal though).
I guess I'll have to look into dropbox.
