Who doesn’t like free stuff! Certainly not me, especially when it is free tech stuff! (I’m also down for free food, Starbucks, Amazon, airfare, hotel stays and gasoline in case you were wondering!)
A few days ago Box, the online cloud storage service, announced that Mac and/or iPhone/iPad users could get 50 gigabytes of free storage just by downloading their new iOS7 app!
Here are the details of the offer: https://support.box.com/hc/en-us/articles/201178517-Box-for-iPhone-and-iPad-50GB-offer-active-Jan-14-Feb-14-2014-
There is a catch though, you have to download the app and activate it before the end of the day on February 15th. Since I have no idea what time zone they are in, I would advise you to do this well in advance of February 15th.
How much is 50 GB?
If you are not into computer stuff you might not know how much you can store with 50 GB. Here is a rough estimate of what you could do with 50 GB of free storage:
- Around 12,500 MP3 songs
- 100,00 photos of 5 MB each
- 625,000 word documents
- Fifty full-length movies
So, to my way of thinking this is a no brainer. Then, if you consider that you could use this to move files from the Mac to the iPhone and vice versa or from the iPhone to the iPad and vice versa or from the iPad to the Mac and vice versa…well you get the picture!
