The most handy "cloud computing" website I have encountered lately is:  http://www.dropbox.com/.  This is a "box" that you download on  all of your computers (laptop, pc, netbook).  It appears on your destop as little blue box.  Anything that you save to the box, automatically synchronizes with all of your computers that have the "dropbox" downloaded on them.  You can share certain folders and documents in "dropbox" with anyone you select.  Only the folders and documents you select are shared.  The data that you place in "dropbox"  also goes out somewhere in the cloud and is backed up there for future retreival.  Love this.  PS.  If you want to join, please let me know.  I will send you an invitation and I win some free MB of storage space.
