    Dropbox is Giving Away 25 GB of Storage to Winning College Students

    Let the questionably interesting games begin — cloud storage isn’t going to be competing with the Olympics for edge-of-your-seat action anytime soon, but at least with Dropbox’s games, there probably won’t be as many dubious construction contracts.
