And the union of both the “universality” and comfort of Dropbox and more than affordable prices Amazon Glacier, arises Amazon IceBox. There is no agreement between the two companies, but a third-trade initiative that promises to combine the best of both services.

Not a bad idea, except that while Dropbox is designed to store, sync, download and share files current, Glacier Amazon backup important data that are accessed on an infrequent basis and now combination of both i.e. Amazon IceBox promising much more.
