FREE IS GOOD!! Take advantage of an ONLINE storage solution!

http://www.box.net/
www.dropbox.com
Free online storage is available but limited.  Online storage services like DropBox will give you 2GB of data for free.  Dropbox will allow your data to be synced onto the web and on all of your devices.  I would say DropBox is clearly the leader in this category.

This is a great solution for file sharing between work and home (Ex. Markbook), quick access to documents and backing up important documents.

This type of service will eventually replace USB sticks once free reliable wireless internet is widely accessible.  There are a number of competitors of Dropbox such as BoxNet and the new icloud.  

Boxnet offers 5GB of storage space with a free account.  However, for a limited time if you activate your free Boxnet account on an idevice you will be upgraded to a lifetime 50GB storage limit.  50GB would normally cost you $19.95 a month but for a very limited time you can get it for free.

Even if you don't use an idevice  you can download boxnet from the App store on someone's idevice and then you will get the free 50GB.  Even if you don't have any use for this service right now I urge you to create an account, record the username and password and store it for safe keeping.  Deals like this do not come around all the time.  I would love for you to comment on how you use cloud storage to make your life easier.  Please feel free to comment below.  Good Luck!  
50GB free lifetime account!
