今天一大早 Mowd 收到了由 ZumoDrive 寄來的一封信
內容提到 ZumoDrive 的開發團隊將會併入到 Motorola 的 MotoCast 服務下繼續進行開發
母公司 Zecter 在 2010 年底被 Motorola 收購
ZUmoDrive 跟 Dropbox 一樣為註冊使用者免費提供 2GB 的使用空間
差別在於 ZumoDrive 僅提供儲存服務，不提供文件同步功能
在現今這個雲端儲存百家爭鳴的時代，僅提供 2GB 的空間就讓 ZumoDrive 失去了競爭力
空間上無法跟 Box 的 50GB、SkyDrive 的 25GB、Sugarsync 的 5GB 甚至是未來 Google Drive 的 5GB 相比
僅提供雲端儲存而沒有任何特色的服務也讓 ZumoDrive 埋下了關閉的種子
This is an important ZumoDrive service announcement. You are receiving this email because you have an active ZumoDrive account.
