So basically, it's essentially google's version of SkyDrive with two gigs less storage for new users and 20 gigs less for long time users?

I've been playing with this since yesterday and as I use lots of google products across multiple pc's, it ties everything together rather nicely.

Data Storage via Google
I have several g-accounts. They are the only free site, that I am aware of, that provide 15 GB free data storage. I only use it for this (non-confidential data, e.g mp3, jpg, etc.). Much cheaper than a portable flash drive, yes? Thoughts/opinions/sage advice welcome. - thank you

Dropbox - 2GB Free Online Storage
I just wanted to share this with everyone who doesn't already know. A real easy backup/online storage solution (of 2GB) was brought to my attention and for signing up through my link you get an additional 250MB as do I. It puts a folder right on your desktop for drag & drop synchronization....

Free Online Backup Storage
I am paying for Mozy online backup now and have seen advertised some free online storage sites. I just wondered if any of you have a good free online site that you use. If I change I would prefer to get a review of someone who has used a site. Thanks,
