I use dropbox to sync Fiverr files across my Mac and my Windows laptop, only now they’ve added an automatic dropbox update to the Mac that you can only turn off by uninstalling dropbox.
I pay $10 for every GB in my little rural spot, and it’s only 3G internet at that. It means I use on average, 6 to 7GB a month. I have every single automatic software update turned off on every device I own and when I go into town I trawl around the free wifi cafes and shops to use my measly 250MB a day allowance in each place to do what updates I can.
I hate automatic updates with a vengeance.
So it seems I’m going to have to stop using dropbox; not that dropbox will care. I’m in that 3% of most populations that this feature will annoy, so as long as 97% of users are happy why would they be bothered.
