Amazon just released a new web service, S3, this week. I’ll admit that I have the urge to write something that makes use of it. There are quite a few people bitching about it on various forums, saying that the price a too steep if you’re going to store hundreds of GB; that may be true, but how many people are really going to do that?? I could see myself using a couple GB, and at $0.15/GB per month it seems quite cheap. The fact that there are no startup fees and you pay only for what you store/transfer make it very appealing.
