The promise and perils of replacing your hard drive with Dropbox

PC World - Dropbox CEO Drew Houston talked a big game this week when he announced new ways for apps to save and load user data.

More than just a set of developer tools, Houston billed the new Dropbox Platform as a way to “replace the hard drive.” Dropbox Platform is supposed to provide easier ways to store your files in the cloud, with simple buttons that developers can add to their apps. It can also let apps save their own data across platforms, so your work in an Android app can carry over to iOS, and vice versa.
