Dropbox was never my favorite cloud storage service. In fact, I never even used it until 2013. My preferred cloud storage services were SkyDrive (now known as OneDrive) and Google Drive. I have always prefered everything Microsoft/Google as I didn’t want to depend upon different companies for different products. My mistake!
Back then, I relied a lot on Google — Gmail (for email), Google Calendar (for calendar), Google Notebook (for note-taking), Google Tasks (for task management), Google Drive (for cloud storage), and Google Reader (for news reading).
And, one fine day, I realized that it’s not a good idea to rely on only one brand for “all things”. How? Because Google discontinued Google Notebook and Google Reader (R.I.P.). And Google Tasks too is on the verge of discontinuation as they are no longer updating that service. In fact, they discontinued a lot of nice Google products.
Today, I don’t care about how many brands I’m relying on. Instead, I just try to make sure that they offer the best product in their category. So, I replaced Google Calendar with Sunrise, Google Notebook with Evernote, Google Tasks with Todoist, Google Drive with Dropbox, and Google Reader with Feedly.
