Dropbox Acquires Mailbox


Rather than grow Mailbox on our own, we’ve decided to join forces with Dropbox and build it out together. To be clear, Mailbox is not going away. The product needs to grow fast, and we believe that joining Dropbox is the best way to make that happen. Plus, imagine what cool things you could do if your Mailbox was connected to your Dropbox…

Should be good news, as it’s not an acqui-hire (ugh, sorry, let’s say talent acquisition), but a simple product acquisition. Dropbox wanted the product, not merely the team.
