Windows Live SkyDrive

Errr, I take back what I said about using Amazon S3 as my personal backup tool.  After playing around with Windows Live SkyDrive, it’s now my picked solution, mainly because it’s free.  Although Amazon S3 has much more potential for applications using it then SkyDrive, SkyDrive is perfect for a quick & dirty backup solution.  They have a really nice Active X upload tool that makes it a snap to upload more then 1 file at a time.  Microsoft finally beat Google to the punch by offering online storage.  Only drawback so far is the storage, 500 MB, but I see this being raised eventually and of course Microsoft is well known for selling a higher platform which at this point I’m willing to pay.
