The founder of Dropbox, Drew Houston, says he is determined to build the next Google or Apple, not to sell out to them. Even for or a guy whose paper valuation is around $600 million, seems like the best he could hope for is another Facebook level company — file storage isn't that sexy. I wish him luck in his bid to remain independent. I'd rather see Dropbox remain fairly agnostic with regard to other Internet services."

Is Dropbox the next Google?

Comments Filter:
  • No, DropBox is not the next Google. If it is, they have a LONG way to go and have to expand in many areas and gain traction in those areas as well. While DropBox may be a useful service, it's not even close to being the next Google, or posing a threat to Google or Facebook.
