http://www.downloadsquad.com – Filed under: Internet, Security, Web servicesAs a Brit, I only know of Comcast as 'that ISP that throttles peer-to-peer traffic', but it's good to see they're back in the saddle and providing value-added services like this! As of now, Comcast users can login and claim their 2GB of free online backup/file sharing space. As CNET points out, it's run by the successful Mozy, which also manages the online backup/storage for McAfee (and despite our collective hatred for McAfee, it's probably a sign that Mozy knows what it's doing!) The only other interesting bit is a statistic from Mozy: apparently 140,000 hard drives crash every week, in just the U.S. Every time a hard drive crashes it's like losing a bit of your soul -- and a free 2GB of storage is more than enough space for your sensitive documents and a generous handful of family photos.
