Everywhere you turn your head now on the web, you see content labeled as Web 2.0. What exactly Web 2.0 is, cannot be defined as simple, but free and easy sharing are part of it for sure. Attempts to create easy, free information sharing environments were more or less of a success over the years but the way I see it, this is the direction user-sharing is going to.
I’m talking about Tubes, a software that allows you to easily share files in a secured manner. All you have to do is to download the installation pack, and the software (that runs on a .NET framework) will allow you to share content freely with who you want. In order to choose with whom you share content you use the so called ‘tubes’. Create a tube, upload content and invite friends, it’s really simple!
You can upload as much as 2GB of data per tube, and then easily synchronize the online content with your offline folder. I know it all sounds as a big commercial but the functions it provides are great and simple, just the way I like them. Sure there are some drawbacks such my concern for privacy and security given the fact that all the files shared by the ‘tube’ users are replicated on each computer.
All in all Tubes is an interesting software you might want to check out, even if you won’t be using it all day long, it just might do the trick in some situation when you quickly need to share data.
