Dropbox limits ‘all the storage you need’ unlimited plan, blames abusive users


20GB limit

What the page linked to actually says is:

To prevent abuse, Dropbox has established the following limits for accounts:

Dropbox Basic and trials for Dropbox Standard, Advanced, and Enterprise: 20 GB of bandwidth and up to 100,000 file downloads per day.

Dropbox Plus, Family, Professional, and Standard: 1 TB of bandwidth and unlimited file downloads per day.

Dropbox Advanced and Enterprise: 4 TB of bandwidth and unlimited file downloads per day.

So it's not actually a problem after all.

If the last few years have shown anything, it is that you should control your own wallet rather than trusting the keys to someone else. Agree that it's not too easy to sell, but a lot simpler than shares!

An amazing coincidence

AIQ continue to deny that they are linked to SCL, the parent of Cambridge Analytica and yet their registered address is identical to SCL Canada's office: Compare https://opengovca.com/victoria-business/27499 with https://web.archive.org/web/20160317101833/https://sclelections.com/contact/

The phone number was also tweeted by Massingham: https://archive.fo/0R4Nf I'm amazed that the farcical nature of their denial isn't made clear by journalists.

Re: Terminator seeds

Most farmers buy new seed each year, GM or not. Have a read up on F1 hybrids. Terminator seeds never really made it off the drawing board and Monsanto pledged never to commercialise the concept back in 1999! I agree that an off switch in GM crops isn't a bad idea, but I seriously doubt that a crop would turn into an inedible weed. Are you thinking of weeds that evolve herbicide resistance?
