back to article Livedrive's livewire, high-living CEO

    How many people quit after that?

    OS X + Fusion + XP = beta works

    Yeah it works here, is a lot (as in hyperlots) faster than iDisk.

    My own 2p worth is that any model needs to be less restrictive (some limit private folder to declared subscribers).

    diino has a lot going for it and is twirling from version 4 to version 5 (Mac and Windows accessible (soon?))

    I know him

    I worked for Andrew Michael at reality telecom before he sold it. He turned up to a meeting at our call centre in his helicopter and at first I thought he was going to be a total wanker but when he sat down with all the tech support staff he really did know what he was talking about and listened to all of us and made some very good changes. I know all the programmers really respected him too and he is known for having very having very high standards. my two pence is on livedrive being a really good product.. Has anyone got an account yet I signed up and it said 24 hours days ago??
