Stop giving your email address out to every bozo website that wants it and spam will virtually disappear. Stop subscribing for every stupid news feed and commercial website and your mailbox won't fill up. I've had the same address for 3 years at this point and I get 15-30 emails a day, most of which are important and valid. The ones that aren't are from my mom.
By submitting your stuff to the Services, you grant us (and those we work with to provide the Services) worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, sublicenseable rights to use, copy, distribute, prepare derivative works (such as translations or format conversions) of, perform, or publicly display that stuff to the extent reasonably necessary for the Service. This license is solely to enable us to technically administer, display, and operate the Services. You must ensure you have the rights you need to grant us that permission.
Still not sure about that last sentence, but the changes they made (in bold) are a huge improvement. Kudos to the management for actually caring about what its customers think.
You are incorrect on both accounts. My goal was to make the TOS terms known to a wider audience in the hope of getting DB to change their TOS to something less permissive. The following is from box.net TOS, as noted by another commenter above:
By registering to use the Services, you understand and acknowledge that Box.net and its contractors retain an irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use, copy, and publicly display such content *for the sole purpose of providing to you the Services for which you have registered*.
I realize they need some copyright assignment to provide the service, I just think its unnecessarily broad.

I think Dropbox is a great service, but what is the significance of granting them such broad usage rights?
Sigh - The universe expanded from a singularity, a singularity is not nothing.
interesting, I agree that I misrepresented that point. So, it sounds like the big bang theory is not an "origin of the universe" theory at all. Its an "evolution" of the universe theory. That point escaped me until now.
So where did the singularity come from?
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth
I know most of you don't like that answer, but its much more sane than arguing for a giant explosion out of nothing, some accidental joining of proteins in primordial soup, and billions of years of accidental gene mutation and natural selection culminating in the world as we know it. Believing in either option requires faith, but believing in God takes less faith than believing in that!
Really, think about it.
I use Evernote, and so do a lot of my med students. It is cross platform, the free version is quite functional and stores PDFs, rich text and graphics. It is searchable and shareable.
Evernote does not work on Linux, so "multi-platform" might be more correct than "cross-platform."
Life is difficult because it is non-linear.
