It's funny that Dropbox announced they'd shift focus to the enterprise, but are still releasing so many consumer-grade apps. Hackpad is a nice start, but it was the start they needed years ago to become business players. Since I don't really have a need for a personal cloud, I'm going to stick with DriveHQ until Dropbox makes real improvements to their business service (and lower their price, by the way).
