Martin Brinkmann at ghacks has discovered that if You don’t put too much attention on where you put your photos on Dropbox, You risk that they become visible to everybody.
To discover some public galleries, just try these steps:
- Go to Google, Bing or your preferred search engine, and enter the following search term into the search box at the top: site:http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/
- Search for site:http://www.dropbox.com/s/ or site:http://dl.dropbox.com/
To avoid these simply don’t put your pictures in dropbox photos folder. (full article here)
I think that not all people are so skilled in using applications and at same time dropbox assumes by default that people read service levels and disclaimers (is not so assured in most cases….)

Charlie Sorrel (http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/author/mistercharlie/) at Wired Gadget ad Dvice lab informs us that polaroid is back with a brand new camera using istant developing film (full story at http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/04/polaroid-lives-new-camera-uses-real-instant-film/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+wired%2Findex+%28Wired%3A+Index+3+%28Top+Stories+2%29%29 and at http://dvice.com/archives/2010/04/polaroid-finall.php. Polaroid announcement at http://www.polaroid.com/products/0/353900/Instant_Cameras).
“[...] The PIC-300 has the familiar snap-and-wait action, spitting a photo from a slot in its top whereupon the internal chemical pack goes to work to develop the image. The camera itself has four exposure settings and an automatic flash built into its ugly, bulbous and toy-like exterior, and runs on four AA batteries or a rechargeable li-ion (all included).
The crying shame is that the photos are smaller than the originals, although they do have that classic shape with the fat (chemical-containing) bottom-border. Similar in size to a business card, the print is 2.1 x 3.4-inches (with a 1.8 x 2.4-inch image) versus the old 3.5 x 4.25 (3 x 3.1 image size) [...]”
I’m curious to see the photo quality, but happy that a small part of my childhood comes back.
I’ve nothing personal against digital photos, but how “sexy” and “human” is to feel the photo paper under the fingers…
How is tasty to find those old photos after some time a little more yellow….
