    +Brent Burzycki, this is not intended for end users; it is an API for developers. This said, the prices are revolutionary. Expect some great backup software to be written for this. Arq for OSX has already said that they will support Glacier.

    +Magnus Akselvoll Oh I know.. but either was AWS and things like Jungle Disk.. this will have software very quickely I assume.. 1c a gig is crazy pricing…

    didn't read the pricing..  but i still worry about theft, censorship and seizure,  especially from government types and corporate concerns…

    +raven storm I don't see your angle here. This is just a storage solution, it is up to you what you put there. If you are worried about Amazon stealing your data or handing it over to governments, you should encrypt it before you upload it. A good backup solution will typically allow you to do this easily.
