First Google steals ideas from the Borg. Now they’re stealing from us.

Have you seen this story in the Wall Street Journal about Google launching some service for online data storage? Bono sent it to me just now. Money quote: “Google is preparing a service that would let users store on its computers essentially all of the files they might keep on their personal-computer hard drives … The service could let users access their files via the Internet from different computers and mobile devices when they sign on with a password, and share them online with friends.”

You know I think I liked this idea better the first time I heard about it — back when I was inventing it and calling it .Mac. I mean holy friggin mother of Christ. I’ve got calls into Squirrel Boy but so far he’s not returning them. I swear I’m about this close to just driving over there and cutting him a new one.
