Saving your favorite files is an absolute must. I was digging thru some boxes and what do you know I found my old iPod from way back in the day when I would take bart to travel to San Francisco for school… I couldn’t remember what I had in that old iPod so thankfully I heard a little birdie tell me iRip! If you’re not familiar with that program, it let’s you download your old iPod, nano or iPhone files to your computer.
If you’re looking for a place to save your files online one of the first things I look at is the amount of storage space/bandwidth/file size limit. Second, pricing which is something you have to consider and shop around. Finally, Features are the make or break factor. A few online places to go to are:
Box.net, standard sharing between users that other services have, but on top of that Box.net offers mobile access, email uploading, and has anawesome free Facebook app for those on the go.

Amazon S3 is a platform for developers to create their own implementations of the service. If your not a developer this would be quite daunting to understand. Pricing depends on storage and data transfers.
Apple’s Time Capsule is not an online storage but it’s very handy for files you want to keep close to you at all times. You can save 1 TB to 2TB and you can place the capsule anywhere in your house since it’s wireless.
