A company called Streamload is offering consumers a free 10 gigabyte
online storage locker for multimedia files, potentially raising the stakes
for larger companies such as Yahoo and America Online.
Streamload typically provides online storage space for a price, making it
one of the few companies to survive in that business through the dot-com
shakeout. However, it is increasingly competing with larger companies that
offer online homes for digital photographs, and even the huge archive
space provided by Google’s Gmail service.
