Bitcasa – Many of us deeply value some of the tools that exist out there which make our lives so much easier. One of the best examples is Dropbox, the application which seamlessly synchronizes our files across all of our devices. The only real downside to Dropbox is the limited amount of storage space we can synchronize. Bitcasa plans to change that. Read more: Bitcasa: Gives Infinite Storage Space To Your Folders

    Bitcasa is great and works very well. Still, they say “During the beta program, you can manage as much data using Bitcasa as you want. Absolutely no limits.” We don’t know what happens when they go out of beta. Anyway I is nice as long as it works

    Did anyone already tried Bitcasa ? Wow! if they will do what they’re saying we might very soon say goodbye to our actual cloud drivers…But why and how come that they can offer such a great service for free? hum…
