Rebit: This is your grandmother's data backup

Jungle Disk + Amazon S3

As I mentioned in The Reg's recent story about Mozy's internet backup:

I use Jungle Disk, which can backup Mac, Windows, and Linux computers to Amazon's S3 data centers. Jungle Disk is a one-time $20 cost and then you only pay Amazon for the bytes you actually use.

Plus you can mount your Jungle Disk backups from another PC. It's like an infinitely-large USB drive.

Google builds very own Ethernet switches

Chris Peterson
Alert

Is there any indication that these switches are more than just internal use?

Just because Google built them, doesn't mean they will sell them.

Babbling net software sparks international incident

Chris Peterson
Go

They could have at least "round tripped" the text to their native language.

Maybe I should write a live Babelfish roundtripper, so you can massage your input text to improve the roundtrip output..
