Nifty. I guess a 1GB GMail account is a little cheaper than a 1GB CF 
card for my camera, too :)

Speaking of which, check this out - totally OT for thread and list, but 
nifty nonetheless:
(for the link-shy, it's a review of the Belkin "Media Reader for iPod 
w/ Dock Connector")

But at least storing stuff in the GMail account gives you another 
option for machines that are Internet-connected but don't have USB 2.0 
or FireWire... but only 1GB?
