A few months ago, Joshua reviewed the iTwin — an interesting device ($99) which when plugged into a computer, automatically creates an unlimited and secure file sharing network. Now, the iTwin has been updated to include SecureBox, an encryption feature which utilises Dropbox. We’ll take you through iTwin SecureBox and show you exactly how it works. We’re also giving away 5 iTwins at the end of this review! So if you’re into file security and encryption, or if you’re someone who values privacy, you won’t want to miss this giveaway.
Dropbox is the original cloud syncing and backup tool. But hosting your own Dropbox-like service comes with a few positives. Let’s take a look at some awesome self-hosted alternatives to Dropbox.
The agility, flexibility, and low-cost scale ups turn cloud storage options into more than an online vault to back up your documents and files.

What’s also attractive is cloud services like Dropbox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, Sugar Sync etc. come with free options.
Do you think you’ve thought of every possible use for Dropbox? You haven’t. Neither have I. Writers like me will never get sick of dreaming up new ways to use Dropbox, because this seemingly simple tool can be used to accomplish so much. It’s a program that provides a simple service – sync a particular folder on your computer with all of your other computers and a web service.
