About two weeks ago the entrepreneurial spirits at XDA-Devs posted a way to take advantage of HTC's free 25GB of Dropbox cloud storage promotion without owning an HTC device. The promo is meant for the new One series of HTC, those who run HTC Sense 4.0, and gives you the free storage integrated in the interface for two years...

Yeah I like how Dropbox tried to throw in a little terror with their statement. I mean, it's good advice in general, but XDA is not one of those places. And if you regularly use XDA, you obviously know enough about smartphones to exercise that judgement anyway.
I actually know what ROM they are referring to, I'm going to go visit the thread and see what they're saying.

"Oh, and don't ask us why HTC is listing 25GB of free storage, and Dropbox says 23GB."
My guess is, because every user gets 2GB for free, so having a Sense 4.0 HTC device gives you a bonus of 23GB to make the total 25.

Gee, why can't people with Android devices pay for things instead of trying to steal them?
