OmniDrive Mac client coming soon

A post on the OmniDrive forums states that a beta of the long-awaited Mac client for the online storage service will be made available next week and an official release is scheduled for the January 15. If true, this will be the shortest public beta I've seen since the Web 2.0 bubble began inflating.

A post on the OmniDrive forums states that a beta of the long-awaited Mac client for the online storage service will be made available next week and an official release is scheduled for the January 15. If true, this will be the shortest public beta I've seen since the Web 2.0 bubble began inflating. This can either mean that the private testing suggest a solid release requiring little public testing and feedback or a sever case of get-it-out-already happy feet.

OmniDrive offers a couple of interesting twists on the standard storage in the cloud idea with the ability to publish files with one click (assign a unique URL to a file) and an embedded music player that lets you listen to MP3 files you've added to your web store.

Proposed pricing (yes, this is a beta) is $40 per year for 10GB of storage. Linux and mobile clients are reportedly on the to-do list as well.

And yes, I am aware that the screenshot posted here is from a Windows XP system. I'll swap it out for a Mac screenshot as soon as the beta is available.  ;^)
