XDrive, AOL’s online storage site for saving large files, is getting 2 million uploads a day, many of them videos, Robert Blatt, Vice President and General Manager of Personal Media at AOL, told me on Monday at the Adobe Engage conference in San Francisco. 

The fast-growing service provides consumers with 5GB of free storage space and pricing for additional storage.  On Monday, AOL announced that the storage service had launched on the new Adobe AIR desktop and on the Mac.

Robert explains in this interview the significance of AIR.  He believes that the desktop upload application is much needed and says will further fuel consumer ease in uploading content.  Might "Web 2.0" become "Desktop 2.0"?
