Default The cloud

What are you guys using for cloud based services including

1) storage
2) calendar
3) todo list

I'm mostly a paper & pencil guy but its time to get more organized. Looking for a centralized system for those 3 categories.

I use a PC, iPad, and android phone.

Thanks guys. When you synch eith dropbox, you have to manually delete pictures from your phone ? I want it centralized but not duplicated

The way it works with me is that I'll have a Dropbox folder on each computer. I drag and drop files in there.

When I'm on my phone, I open the Dropbox app and have the option to download any file that is stored on the Dropbox folders. It won't download them all because it would be pretty inconvenient (wasting battery and data).

If I delete a file from my phone, Dropbox will delete it on my PC (and vice versa).

Dropbox or box.net are the easiest. Password apps like 1Password have Dropbox integration so your passwords sync across all of your devices and computers as well. For box, keep and eye out for special offers and you can snag 50gigs for free with upload and file size restrictions. Pm me and I'll email you a Dropbox invite (you can grow your size via bonuses)

This is basically it. If you don't like dropbox then look at jungledisk. They do the same thing and let you set a private encryption password if you want.

Personally I just use Google Apps although I'm looking at SkyDrive as well since Microsoft is pushing that hard now.

Don't they all parse your files looking for data, and that is why they offer it for free, like free e-mail providers do?

I don't trust file-storage that I can't unplug.
