Apple takes on dropbox with MailDrop and iCloud Drive on new Mac OS X Yosemite
Apple has just announced a new Mac OS at WWDC 2014, dubbed Yosemite, with great new feature and visual enhancements. However one new feature in the new redesigned Mail for Mac is taking a straight dig at Dropbox. Now with MailDrop every time you send an email with a file larger than the recipients server can accept, apple will automatically upload the large file to iCloud and create a download link for the user on the other end.
Unless the recipient is on a Mac, who will then see the attachment in MailDrop like a regular attachment, if you open it on a PC you will get a simple download link. The attachments can be unto 5 Gb in size and the service comes free.
The new iCloud drive lets you dump images or whatever files you want to to your online cloud, with access available on iOS and Mac. Basically urging all iDevice users to dump third party services (aka dropbox).
