SugarSync Initial Impressions

So this morning I got a real simple email from reader Seth which basically said, "Check out SugarSync". This is really an interesting service. At first glance it looks like another offsite backup plan but it really isn't. It is much more aimed at syncing files between computers. Any types of computers: Macs, windows, iPhones, and Blackberries. SugarSync doesn't care. I played with it for about an hour today and installed it on the MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. The cross platform sync is faster that doing it through iDisk for certain. I can access my documents from either computer, my iPhone and presumably my office PC. I haven't used it enough yet to figure out where the kinks are (one is definitely security) and I'm not sure I want to pay another monthly fee but this is interesting.

Take a look and let me know your thoughts.
