    Paper is such a wonderful experience. It's better than Google Docs, Evernote, Onenote...Paper's design is clean, and puts the content first, and the integration with other platforms is amazing. Nothing quite like pasting a pinterest moodboard and seeing it render inline.

    Regarding Dropbox's various decisions to pivot from products...well I can assure you from personal experience that it's a tough decision to make, and sometimes you have to shut something down that is losing money.

    Mailbox was an experiment, and I imagine they bought it to integrate with their services to bring more users onto the Dropbox platform. They probably didn't see enough growth within their service to warrant the overhead.

    Carousel was always superfluous since Dropbox itself had photos backup capabilities for awhile, and even has a beautiful timeline to find help find photos.

    Paper has been in development for awhile now, and they use it internally. And I've heard of quite a few companies adopting the platform to manage projects. I doubt it's going anywhere.
