Dropbox today increased its maximum storage option to 1TB for Dropbox Pro subscribers and introduced a bunch of new features while maintaining its monthly subscription charge at just $9.99. It’s part of the company’s effort to better compete with rival cloud-based storage services like Google Drive.


HTC’s One M8 is widely regarded as the finest Android phone you can buy, and it just became the finest Windows Phone, too. Exclusively on Verizon, the “HTC One M8 for Windows” (that’s its long and official name) is just like the original, with BoomSound and a Duo Camera — and it’s just $99 on a two-year contract.
