Some of the best companies around are still private: Evernote, SpaceX, Twitter, and, of course, Dropbox, the file-sharing service that's ostensibly surrounded by Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG ) Drive, Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT ) SkyDrive, and Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL ) iCloud.
More than anything else, the flexibility to handle work as well as personal files deftly has made Dropbox popular. What we didn't know is just how popular.
