Tired of the relatively poky broadband speeds offered by telephone and cable companies? You can now get download speeds up to 300Mbps (and upload speeds up to 65Mbps) -- but only if you live in an area served by Verizon's FiOS.
FileStork is a free web service that allows you to create an online file request form in which the files uploaded through the form get fed right into your Dropbox account. An email with the form link can then be sent to one or more email addresses. The recipient will be able to upload the file through a simple web form, bypassing any email storage limitations.

According to Reuters, AT&T is currently working on implementing a fix for the iPhone upload data caps that many are experiencing in the US. According to the article, the problem affects less than 2% of the userbase, but the problem could take another 2-3 weeks to fix. Alcatel-Lucent, makers of the gear that powers the cell sites, started issuing a software patch today to fix the problem.
Apparently they finally got the clue. On Wednesday, AT&T came out of the woodwork to officially acknowledge the issue of slow upload speeds for some iPhone 4 users. It's being blamed on a software defect.
Here's a nice surprise, that was scantly touched upon by Steve Jobs during the official unveiling of the iPhone 4: Apple's latest handset supports HSUPA (High Speed Uplink Packet Access,) a 3G protocol that provides uplink speeds up to 5.76 Mbps. According to AppleInsider, the iPhone 4's HSUPA "joins HSDPA (High-Speed Download Packet Access), the enhanced download upgrade to UMTS 3G service that was supported by last year's iPhone 3GS, enabling up to 7.2 Mbps downloads. Because it lacked support for HSUPA, iPhone 3GS was limited to just 384 kbps uploads."
