ElephantDrive has launched their online data storage system, which will allow subscribers to use their accounts as a sort of central hard drive or data storehouse, accessible from anywhere. It requires the installation of the "Elephant Desktop"; the FAQ is at present ominously silent as to whether it will work on non-Windows platforms. It will become a pay service in the future, starting at $9.95 for 10GB of storage space, but for now a free beta trial is available.

I wonder where their servers are located, and whether they're safe from the predations of Homeland Security…
