Techies, who know about services like DropBox, Box.net or Windows Live Skydrive, will definitely find the price of Dilbert Files a bit steep but for millions of other Scott fans, this may just be another way to get more of their daily Dilbert dose Ė you can read coming strips even while the file is uploading.

Dilbert cartoons appear in some 2,000 newspapers in 70 countries but as the number of traditional newspapers continues to shrink, Scott Adams says that "this is the sort of thing that will help keep Dilbert free online." Am sure die-hard Dilbert fans wonít be complaining here.
