Bandwagon launches tomorrow; it purports to back up your entire iTunes library over the Internet to their servers (or alternatively to your Amazon S3 box) for a flat rate. Updates occur automatically in the background. Sounds like a good idea, if they can pull it off. (Mac only at the moment, apparently.)

Here’s the thing…it took me all day to back up my iTunes library to 26 DVDs. I’m pretty sure a station wagon full of magnetic tapes would guarantee me better throughput than the internet in this case.
[…] I haven’t had a chance to set up my Bandwagon account yet — and, as has been pointed out, it may not be an optimal solution for large iTunes collections — but I’m a DreamHost […]
So I’m trying it out now — it claims it will take nearly five days to back up the 4270 items in my library (~20 GB). On the other hand, I don’t have to keep popping DVDs into my drive. (On the gripping hand, I’m not paying $24/year to backup my files to my own online storage — hopefully the syncing features will come along soon…)
