New S3 Options

September 06, 2011 by Gabe | [mmd] |

Amazon recently sent me an email describing some new features of their S3 service. They include:

  • Folder Upload
  • Find Objects by Quick Search
  • Broader Access (use the Amazon S3 Console on platforms that don’t support Adobe Flash)

Amazon S3 is still a bit too geeky for most people but these new features sure seem to target mainstream users. I honestly do not think Apple's iCloud will replace Dropbox. Neither, do I think it is designed to function like Dropbox. However, death by a thousand Amazon upgrades could be a possibility for Dropbox.
