It seems no matter how much internal storage our gadgets have, it's never enough.
We want more, and most of us already use services like Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, SkyDrive, Amazon Cloud and Box, to name a few. They all give a certain amount of space away for free in the hope you'll sign up for their service and pay for more storage. Here's how the current services stack up in the amount of free storage:
Dropbox offers 2GB of free storage.
Google Drive offers 5GB of free storage
iCloud offers 5GB of free storage
SkyDrive offers 7GB of free storage
Amazon Cloud Drive offers 5GB of free storage
Box offers 5GB of free storage
How would you like 50GB of free storage for life? I'm sure the answer is yes, so here's how you can obtain that 50GB. Box is currently offering 50GB of Box cloud storage for free for new users. The signup page currently reads that the giveaway is a "Dell Exclusive Offer," but you don't need to own a Dell or have anything to do with Dell to qualify.
If you already use Box you can still obtain that massive amount of space by signing up with a new email address (I verified it works and have 55GB of FREE space). Having that much space in the cloud is a great way to backup important information, documents, pictures and anything else instead of storing them on a device that has the potential to break down, get lost or stolen.
Box is also offering 50GB free for coworkers and friends, so forward this news on. Box hasn't listed when this promotion will end.
