Wired.com’s Robert McMillan reports that Dropbox wants to be your always-on hard drive, whether youre using an iPad, an Android phone, or a PC, but that if the increasingly ubiquitous Cloud service is going to reach that lofty goal, it will need more than a little help from the world’s software developers.
McMillan notes that in six year of operation Dropbox has carved out a niche for itself as the parking spot for everything that you want to save and share, now boasting 175 million users, and is hosting its first-ever developer conference this week at San Francisco’s Fort Mason.
“We are replacing the hard drive, McMillan cites Dropbox CEO Drew Houston commenting. “I don’t mean that youre going to unscrew your MacBook and find a Dropbox inside, but the spiritual successor to the hard drive is what were launching.”
