Battle of the Bands

Posted by Jon Ying on March 16, 2009

After last month’s post about Drew, we got an interesting comment:

Hey guys… we love your work and follow the blog (over here at Mozy). We spotted your Rock Band affinity and all we could think of was this:


Mozy hereby challenges you to a Rock Band Playoff, battle of the bands, best man is the last man standing. Email me if you accept:

tom [at]

And yes, we’re totally serious.

One thing led to another, and this Thursday (3/19) Mozy will be sending out their “dream team” (lol) to compete against us in a Rock Band Battle Royale.  If you’d like to witness this spectacle and cheer on the Dropboxers, we’ll be streaming it live Thursday night at 7 PM PST from headquarters (more details to come).  Wish us luck!

In other news, we’re looking for those of you with artistic talent to redesign our Leopard-style tray icon for the Mac clients of Dropbox– but no need to worry, anyone can participate!  The winner gets an extra 50GB of space.  To learn more, head here.

Osx ? Nice ! While you're there, why don't you update the Linux icon to an svg version and test it with larger panels on gnome ?

I think you're going to have a hard time finding a good designer this way. Most designers refuse to work on spec.

I would suggest contacting an actual Mac icon designer (I recommend,,, all of whom I've worked with professionally). Their rates are affordable and I'm sure they'd also be willing to work in exchange for space as well.

Who won?! I bet it was Mozy; it's actually part of their job to play Rockband 4 hours each day.
