they could provide multiple levels of service - a free one that can
store gps coords, sms (say, 50MB storage) which isn't supported
or a paid-for service that has more storage space (5GB?), is
supported, has guaranteed service levels, and includes encryption.
similar to xdrive, but good

access would be however i connect to the web - wifi, gprs, usb
connection to my home network, whatever

alternatively, an application to sit on my pc and do all this stuff
locally would be very useful
