    Just wanted to point this out if you don't know about it - Microsoft Skydrive (app available for Windows, Mac OS, iOS devices) is available now for online storage. 7 GB of free cloud storage with more via paid subscriptions up to (I think?) 25 GB.

    It's wonderful. Upon download to my computer, I now have a Skydrive link where I just drag and drop things onto my SkyDrive and then I can access them via my iPhone.

    I've been waiting for a powerful solution with enough storage to make it worth it; I now have my laptop and desktop sync some of my more important "irreplacable" files.

    Hopefully this 7 GB limit will become something more in the future, but until then, I e-mail myself my photo images to my Gmail account and dummy Gmail accounts for my online storage in the event of catastrophic loss (fire, etc.)

    If you've had a Hotmail account before the Skydrive announcement, you can be upgraded to 25GB for free. A reward for "loyalty".

    I did that today.
    The only downside: the mac client requires lion.

    on the iOS app when I go to add an item to upload a picture, my Photo Albums is blank and wont let me select any photos. Anyone having this issue?

    I didn't previously use Skydrive, because it was a web only thing, now they've finally added a desktop client to take the hassle out of uploading things I'll use it much more.
