Cloud Storage, Sync and Peer-to-Peer Apps for Desktop and Mobile Devices

Cloud storage and desktop/mobile synchronization has become a relatively mature field with multiple players offering great solutions for personal and business use.  Here's is my quick list of providers:

The short descriptions above don't fully capture the richness of each products features which differ substantially.

While each of these provides a system to synchronize your files between a centralized cloud storage system and other devices, there has been a rise in peer-to-peer applications that enable you to transfer files from one device directly to another (without the cloud). This has advantages including speed, security, autonomy and control. In addition to Cubby, I've used AeroFS and BTSync with great success.
