I'm a fan of Dropbox, but competing service Copy's got a couple of nice things going for it: First, 15 gigabytes of storage, free, out of the box.

Merrell Proterra

I've pretty much only bought Merrell shoes for the past six years or so. Bought these last weekend and love them. Lightweight, good traction; great day-to-day shoe. I'm told they're also excellent trail hikers; I plan to put them up to that in a few weeks.
