Box.net: not just a gig of online storage

Box1I just got an invite to Box.net from my buddy Ben over at HDBeat. Box.net is conceptually similar to Gdrive, giving you a gig of online storage that you can access via a web browser. There’s a bit more to Box.net than meets the eye, however. While the free account gives you a gig, upgrading to a paid account nets you more space plus advanced functions like public sharing of files you specify as well as mobile access through a handheld device. The overall interface looks pretty slick and even has a social aspect as well: you can set up workgroups with other Box.net member in your Boxwork, er Network, and even tag files that are related, but in separate folders.

Better yet, I noticed this little bit of eye-candy with a "coming soon" tag. Looks like you’ll be able to sync your desktop files with your Box.net account as well.

If anyone is interested in Box.net, you can sign up directly on their site. If you want an invite, just shoot me a note; they offer an account upgrade if you refer folks and I wouldn’t mind playing with and then reporting on some of the advanced features. ;)
