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. http://money.cnn.com/2006/03/07/technology/google.reut/index.htm?section=cnn_tech 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.
