Dropbox had to evacuate its headquarters when an electric scooter caught fire
The San Francisco Fire Department has confirmed to The Verge that Dropbox evacuated its SF headquarters at 333 Brannan yesterday after an electric scooter caught fire on the fifth floor of the building. The SFFD says it was able to extinguish the fire, and that no one got hurt.
How Dropbox is finally breaking free of the folder
For years, the single best thing about Dropbox was that it was practically invisible. The service, which debuted in 2008, was far from the first to put a hard drive in the cloud, having been preceded by the likes of i-drive, X-drive, Driveway, and Microsoft's OneDrive (née SkyDrive, née Windows Live Folders).
Dropbox relaunches as an enterprise productivity workspace
Dropbox is launching a new enterprise cloud search tool to make sense of the mess of productivity software and online data businesses use. CEO Drew Houston described how people spend 60% of our office time on work about work like organization and communication instead of actually working - a marketing angle frequently used by task management startup Asana.
Would you recommend this product?
were people really asking Dropbox to be their enterprise hub? i thought we all liked it because it was dead simple and near-100% reliable? i mean, i get what Dropbox is doing from an enterprise perspective, i guess, but my simple folder that used to sync everywhere now uses a gig of memory and costs 20% more...

agreed Chris. Other softwares and brands are doing the same and its absolutely ridiculous. I use to love the adobe set of products now I need to install creative cloud to installed the different software and that alone adds like 1GB RAM usage making my computer slow down. Negative user experience and so many others talk about it and they don't seem to care.
Electron-App. No Paper integration. Missed opportunity.
Nice, been waiting for a Dropbox app. I love Dropbox and the UX/UI is killer across platforms. But, its still very expensive. This release reminds me a lot of Notion...
I actually love this as an upgrade to my Dropbox Paper workflow but ironically I don't think it works with Paper? It's actually even weirder than that because you CAN see Paper docs in Search and Notifications but not in the main view/Create menu. It doesn't make sense
I bet they are planning to add Paper features to the new Dropbox instead of integrating. At present I don't thinnk I can switch bc it lacks critical features, like 'Things to do' and commenting on the folder descriptions.

What a strange direction to try to pivot towards. I like Dropbox because it just works was* light and minimal on resources and priced right. I just don't see a place for their new collaboration piece since most teams already have a system in place for this that connects to Dropbox... But I am not their target audience for this so I could way off on how people will receive this and use it.
