Pownce Upgrades Itself to More Traditional Filesharing Service
Pownce, the microblogging service you know, have upgraded itself to a filesharing service. They’ve done this by letting you share 100 MB files with the public, should you want to. Previously, the cap was 10 MB, and 100 MB was for pro users only, so I wonder what they’ll do to compensate that feature that some people (me included) paid for? Edit: It’s now 250 MB for pro users.
Anyway, this means that you’ve got yet another way to share files with friends. Might this be another dump for RAR:d porn and overall crappiness for people not wanting to spend money on a VIP account on Rapidshare? I hope not.
