Found this cloud app after reading an article on CNN.com about cloud computing.

http://www.getdropbox.com

It's basically a very easy online storage solution (2 gigs for free). You can store your files via a folder available from your desktop and access the files from any internet connected pc, laptop or even IPhone.

You can also choose to share folders with other users. So, decent for online collaboration where files are being bounced around.

Also, you don't have to have the app installed to retrieve or upload your data. You can do it from the website. Kind of like a quick and easy alternative to ftp, or paying for web-space to backup your files.

This has an Android counterpart. Basically, upload to Dropbox from the PC or phone and have it available on your PC or phone at any time.

Damn, I love technology :D

I've been thinking about checking out dropbox myself, especially since there is an app for it for the iphone/ipod touch.
