Palm Desert, Calif.
- Spare Backup, an automated online backup service for PCs and mobile devices,
has signed separate agreements with Sears' home repair subsidiary ServiceLive and
with wireless e-tailer Simplexity.

ServiceLive was founded three years
ago as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sears Holdings. The online referral
business provides home repairs and improvements, as well as CE and IT support,
through a nationwide network of service providers.

Under terms of a Jan. 28 agreement,
Spare Backup will provide ServiceLive with such online-based services as PC
data backup and transfer, cloud computing, and PC synchronization to ServiceLive
customers. According to a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission
(SEC), the partners will share in the revenue generated by the services, which
will be co-branded as "ServiceLive, powered by Spare Backup."

Earlier last month Spare Backup forged a deal to allow Simplexity to
market its data-protection services for mobile devices through Simplexity's own site and through the online wireless stores  it operates for such affiliates as Best Buy,
RadioShack, Target and ShopNBC.
