Amazon S3 Storage Service and it's WebServices

So Amazon recently released their S3 service, it's a remote Storage Service and it can use WebServices to access it. In their own words:

"Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet. It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers.

Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers."

I am bloating with ideas on using this service right now,

Easy to follow video explaining the basic mechanics that need to be used to access S3 in .NET:

This is an interesting editorial style article on the cost comparison of making your own BackUp server and using S3  - http://www.webpronews.com/blogtalk/blogtalk/wpn-58-20061004ReplacingmyhomebackupserverwithAmazonsS3.html
