Online storage has been something that I have been a little skeptical of over the past few years as certain storage sites have come and gone leaving users without access to their stuff. With solving this problem in mind, DC area blogger Jimmy Gardner decided to write up some specs and financed the creation of a new set of online tools. MyDropBin was launched to help users save and share stuff online.
The MyDropBin concept reminds me a little of the startup Evernote which looks to help users remember everything. MyDropBin puts a simple set of tools on top of Amazon S3 storage making it easy for users can save, file share, tag and bookmark items. Users maintain control of their own storage by configuring their Amazon S3 account themselves which offers them a pay as you go model and is only pennies for storage space. Like the name implies, users get a "Bin" to simply drop whatever they want. MyDropBin aims to make using your storage space better. A bookmarklet is also available to save web pages directly to MyDropBin.
