DropBox

Store your stuff, Preserve your Memories, use a Drobo and/or online services for secure file/image/video/etc storage

You know that it's best to backup your files, because good backups are crucial to recovering from a disaster. If the disk on your main computer crashes, will you lose your files? What if the only pictures of your children anywhere is on that disk? You can replace the disk, reload the operating system and your applications, but those pictures, your financial records, the things you've written, your hopes and dreams you'd laboriously put into software or other creative work, all that is your stuff and cannot be replaced just by downloading a fresh copy from an app store.

DropBox is an interesting solution to iPod/iPhone/Mac/etc file sharing

Searching for a solution to Apple's stupid iTunes policy on uploading files from iPod or iPhone or iPad brought me to DropBox. I've heard of various geeks saying they use this app and it's cool, so thought to give it a whirl. It's actually useful for the problem at hand, namely image and video sharing between my iPod Touch and my Mac laptop. It's not quite what is wanted, but it's pretty good nonetheless.
