It was only two weeks ago that Google said it intended to sell Motorola Mobility and now its boss looks set to leave. A report Wednesday said Dennis Woodside is joining Dropbox as its COO to help the company expand its presence in the online storage business.
Nearly six months after its debut, App.net its expanding its horizons by offering 10GB of storage to its paying customers. It's the natural next step for a social platform that wants to be the backbone of premium, ad-free services online.
During WWDC, Apple announced iCloud Drive, which converts iCloud into a file storing system in the cloud. Announced as part of OS X Yosemite, it allows you to store documents, as well as any file you have, in the cloud.
It was on Wednesday night that we first heard Motorola's Dennis Woodside was off to Dropbox, but it wasn't until Thursday that the news was confirmed. Dropbox's CEO said he was looking forward to Woodside taking the online storage firm "to global scale."
