    I'm not sure how this is news on CNN since I heard about this months ago. But, Google is supposedly going to be offering a new online storage service for users. The key being that they (Google) can keep the data for 30 days, and only a few key people would have full blown access to it.

    I'd never use it, without encrypting the data first and then transferring it, but I sure could use a nice offsite backup for some of my important data. I bet you'd have to use they're software to do so... or they're Google desktop.

    Encryption FTW! That's what I'll be doing.

    Yeah. I try to encrypt all important email that goes through gmail anyway. I'd do the same with the file storage.

    Are you using it to encrypt attachments that you send, or the whole message? I myself rarely send attachments, and if I do it's usually just a stupid video or something.

    One app I really like is 7zip. It allows you to create a self extracting archive that you can password protect with 256-bit encryption. And it's open source so it makes me feel good inside when I use it lol.

    All intra-company emails are encrypted and signed using GPG. The message body, as well as attachments. Most everyone forwards their corporate mail through gmail, and then we POP in and get it in encrypted form there and decrypt in Mail.app or Outlook.
