The LaCie CloudBox is going to set you back $199.99 for 100GB. Included is a year of online storage — AES encrypted with daily backups. Once the year of storage is up, you can just use it as a standard external backup drive, or renew your contract. No word yet on how much that will cost.
While I can’t imagine one would use this as their main storage unit (for all the thousands of images, MP3s, files, videos, etc.) The CloudBox seems like a rather efficient option as a dual on- and off-site backup. Apple has given us MobileMe and soon iCloud.. with options like these out there, does LaCie’s CloudBox stand a chance? I guess it just depends on what you need.Cloud box, Cloudbox, iCloud, LaCie, Mobile me, MobileMe
