SanDisk Flash Drive to Offer Automatic Web Storage - New York Times

An interesting permutation, but at $59.99 for a 4-gig USB drive (and $29.99/year after the free six months of on-line backup), I doubt this will be a huge success

When consumers store documents, photos and music onto SanDisk's new Cruzer Titanium Plus USB flash drive, it will back up that digital information to a Web service offered by a start-up company called BeInSync, which stores data onto Amazon.com Inc's <AMZN.O> computers.

The new storage drive, which SanDisk believes is the first of its kind, is the latest in a wave of devices that link up with the Internet to offer new features to products that were previously considered stand-alone, or offline, devices.
