In the world of cloud data storage, Dropbox is one of the 800lb gorillas fighting for your files. In recent days, it has been making big moves to become more of a player in photo storage and sharing. After all, everyone needs a safe place to keep their digital images, right?
The company’s latest play came today in the form of an acquisition: Dropbox has acquired fellow cloud-storage company Snapjoy — a business based around aggregating photos from around the web and from your various devices.
Dustin Henderlong of Snapjoy shot this time-lapse video last week of the massive Colorado wildfires from his 5th-floor office window. He used a Canon 5D Mark III, 50mm f/1.4 lens, an intervalometer, and an A/C adapter to continuously snap photos from 3pm Tuesday to 10am Thursday.
