Dropbox, the handy cloud storage service, has quickly become a stalwart companion for people looking to sync files across multiple computers or to share files with others. What users probably haven't realized is that the minds behind the service have a pretty good sense of humor, and hid a fun easter egg in the service.
So far the trick only appears to work for OS X users, and seems to have been hidden in April, but only just now been discovered. It can be accessed by changing the name of a file (or folder) in your Dropbox folder to a series of pre-set phrases. Doing so causes a window to appear that scrolls through pictures and quotes from many of the Dropbox developers, followed by a special thanks and some words of wisdom. There's also a shoutout to Google, Microsoft, and Apple, perhaps a reference to those companies new interest in cloud-based services pioneered by companies like Dropbox.
