Steve Jobs was right: Dropbox is a feature, not a product | PandoDaily

Man, that's spot-on in some ways. It's becoming a distinct possibility that Apple is going to make (or get closer to making) the "continuous client" idea happen with Mountain Lion. And I will be well glad for it.

But I don't see Dropbox failing anytime soon. The writer misses a crucial point, the difference between the Dropbox model and that of Apple and Microsoft. The major OS developers desire to keep you and your working environments within that company's ecosystem; Dropbox, on the other hand, wants to help you distribute your data across ecosystems.

This is Dropbox's killer feature: your stuff, everywhere.
