You want to send a file to a friend. They have Dropbox. You have Dropbox. Cool, right?
Dropbox is not entirely well named, because unfortunately, you can't easily "drop" something on someone else's Dropbox.
Instead, you have to upload the file to your Dropbox, give your friend the URL, await confirmation that your friend got it, and then delete it from your Dropbox.
Why not allow me to set aside 200 MB or 2 GB or whatever size I want to act as an actual "dropbox" for people to share files with me (or for me to share with them)?
There aren't even any real good solutions to allow this. Search for "uploading to a friend's Dropbox" or "allow uploads to my Dropbox" and the best you'll get are some third-party hacks (and some cost money).
Lame. C'mon, Dropbox. You can do this…
