    I really like Dropbox. I'm going to miss holding the illusion that it gives a damn about privacy. Looks like it's time to find another way to back up and sync my files.

      It’s not the app, it is the format. Microsoft’s most valuable property is the unholy trinity of .doc, .xls, and .ppt. In a world where those formats didn’t hold sway, there would be utterly no need for Office for iPad.

                      @brettbonfield You should install it anyway for yourself :-P It’s still a bit underpowered, But I like the simplicity & flexibility.

                        @brettbonfield Yeah I looked at them. There was some reason I was wary, but can’t remember why now. Currently I’m paying 3 different hosting services (Wordpress, Ghost & Gandi) so I probably should consolidate before paying a 4th!

                          @brettbonfield Big difference from wordpress.com though - total control over theming, html and css.

                            @brettbonfield Using the Ghost.org hosting for now. I got 3 months free as a Kickstarter backer, and there are limited options for shared server space with node.js capability.

                              May well transfer my Wordpress blog to Ghost today. Wish me luck.
