Online file sharing is becoming more & more popular day by day.Although email service providers like Hotmail,Yahoo & Gmail have increased the attachment limits.But every now & then we witness a online file sharing site with something unique in store.I just came across this site called Drop.io Its a place for storing and sharing photos, video, audio, notes, docs, etc. Each is accessible only to those whom you tell exactly where to look. No signup and no 'account'. It doesn't even ask for your email. Create as many drops as you want, and each easily accessible at drop.io/thedropname.
Drop.io is useful for
- privately sharing pictures & video
- transferring files to yourself
- sharing documents with co-workers
- creating 'instant' collaboration space
- posting your resume privately
- and more!

I have a good news for Orkut user.Recently Orkut changed its privacy settings,Certainly increased privacy now.Because Orkut users now have an option to block unknown visitors to view their scrapbooks,albums,videos,testimonials & feeds.Orkut was under hammer for giving lesser privacy options.This is probably the biggest privacy change in Orkut.You can enable these settings by following these instructions.
- From your Orkut Homepage go to "Settings.
- Now Click on The Privacy Tab.
- Select Whatever you want to allow & whatever you don't

News about Gdrive is not new.Its around for quite a long time now.But the recent word on Gdrive is that Google is preparing a service that would enable users to store data from their personal hard drives on its computers.
Users would be able to house files they would normally store on personal computers - such as word-processing documents, digital music, video clips and images -- on Google's computers, the Journal said, citing sources familiar with the matter.
The service could let users access their files through the Internet from different computers and mobile devices when they sign on using a password.
The service could be released as soon as a few months from now.
Google also plans to provide some free storage, with additional storage allotments avaiable for a fee. Planned pricing isn't known yet.
I don't think that Google will take long to release Gdrive.

Yahoo and Adobe have ended up in an agreement to provide contextual advertising on Pdf documents download.Users upload their PDFs to Yahoo’s ad network and then Yahoo hosts the document for download and serves up contextual advertising in a panel to the right of the given document’s content.There are mixed reactions on the introduction of this pdf advertisement.Some say that it will be great & why wasn't it introduced before.Others say it cant attract people as there is limited useage of Pdf documents.
