Everybody could do with some cloud storage, but for some people the default 2, 5, or 7GB is just not enough.

To combat that, Box.net now offers 50GB – but there’s a catch. The offer is only available to those who sign up using the company’s all-new, redesigned iOS application for iPad and iPhone. It’s a big step up from the usual (and not insignificant) 10GB the company offers, so if you have an Apple device go ahead and jump on this bandwagon. Much like rope, you can never have enough cloud storage.

Eleven years ago Christo started writing about technology for one of South Africa's (then) leading computer magazines. His first review? A Samsung LCD monitor. Hey, it was hot news, back then. Nowadays he gets more excited about photography, cars, game consoles, and faster internet connections. He's sort of an Apple fan, but will take any opportunity to remind you about his Windows-powered home theatre PC and desire to own a vanilla Android tablet.   Currently uses: Apple 13-inch Macbook Pro with Retina Display, Apple iPhone 5, Microsoft Laser Mouse 6000, Audiofly AF78 Earphones, Xbox 360, Nikon D50.
