I've been using Mozy (http://mozy.com/) for a year or two and it works 
great.  They have a Mac version now as well.  As with most of these 
things it runs quietly in the background.  They have put a lot of focus 
on security too (i.e. how best to encrypt all of your data).

You can store 2GB for free or pay $4.95/month for unlimited storage.  
They also landed a deal to handle back up for all of GE's computers 
(that's a lot of machines), so they should be around for a while.
