This week I decided to check out the new website, the newer version of the cloud storage that purports to be built from the ground up for maximum security, that will include a chat feature.

Here is something that left me feeling quite embarrassed, angry and apologetic; on importing my Gmail contacts (to check if they are already using the service) proceeded to email every contact in my address book an invitation to join the service, something that I am sure I was not warned about! This included friends, people I knew more than ten years ago, companies I have dealt with recently and in the past and so on. This is a very ill-thought action.

I have written some feedback to the service and hope that they will stop this happening in future, and I would like to apologize to anyone who received such spam in my name.
