Netbooks and Net(work-hosted) Storage

Network-hosted storage began as an alternative for purchasing another hard drive. Companies such as eSnips and Box.net are moving it from a strictly backup and storage solution to a way to share and use files. Box.net even lets the user post stored pictures to sites like Facebook, edit pictures through sites like Picnik, and work with documents in applications like Zoho. Now through collaborations with ShoZu and Cortado, files can be shared, uploaded, downloaded, or simply accessed by mobile phones. Need a bigger screen? The new Dell Inspirion Mini 9 comes with 2GB of Box.net storage, making the case of the netbook stronger.
