As I am sure you know, there is no point in having all the data in the planet if you can't make sense of it.

For me the 'best' current balance for (i) 'photographic memory', (ii) synchronization (between the 4 computers I use routinely -- make it 5 if you include the smart-phone), (iii) and keeping only relevant data is:
- GMail for mail and contacts
- Google Calendar
- RememberTheMilk for sharing notes with my boss (aka 'wife')
For managing/remembering/synchronizing/versioning anything else I just use Git and private repos at GitHub.
Actually the one thing I still need to improve is actually doing some form of 'transparent / easy' encryption so that I can also push sensitive data into GitHub (e.g. my Git 'tax info' repository).
