Try a cloud service. Dropbox.com or Box.net. Both free. There some others too. I use Dropbox to share files between work pc, home pc and both my iOS devices.

Why not get a mass storage device that is stand alone and connected to your network via wireless.

I've seen people say good things about Synology. I think that is more of a mass storage device, rather than a server.

I should note that an NAS is overkill for simple file sharing. I agree with others who've recommended Dropbox, Google Drive and Box.net.

Another vote for Dropbox. Skydrive is also a nice solution.
