The reason we gave three away two months ago was because we thought this seemed like a pretty neat service, so we took it for a more in depth look ourselves to tell you more about it. We provide a look at box.net after the jump.
In today’s world, communication is of great importance. That is why instant messaging has become so popular in the business sector as much as in the personal web experience. However, sometimes the standard features that come in two of the biggest names for instant communication is not enough.
