Very excited about this service. For $4 a month, I get 40Gb on online storage for my music files (currently 28Gb worth) which acts for me as a backup PLUS there is an iPhone app that will let you display the library and stream the music to your phone!

This saves 13 Gb of space on my iPhone (more room for movies/tv) and individual songs download very fast over 3G. LOVING IT!

Free laptop

I put ununtu on a USB stcik and use it on a laptop I pretty much have to dedicate to another purpose. But when I boot from the USB stick, it's like a whole new computer. I downloaded Chrome for Ubuntu and with browser sync, it configures itself to match my home desktop. No difference except for Netflix (no Silverlight plugin for Ubuntu, so Netflix does not support streaming video) Other than that I could not be more happy thus far. It's like I have two laptops in one!

TV Bookmarks

I love watching  online TV and I've accumulated a few bookmarks that pretty much cover all my favorite shows and channels.

Dish Online
Bravo TV
Food Network
TWiT Live
