I know previously you could find your backups in ~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup, but I do not have a MobileSync folder in my Application Support Folder, is it now a hidden folder or what?

iPhone Backup Location for Mac OS X
in Mac OS X your iPhone files are backed up at the following location:

~/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/

The (~) symbol signifies your home directory, which is the same place all your other personal documents are stored.

Windows XP stores all of your iPhone backup files in this location:

CDocuments and Settings\user\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

Windows Vista and Windows 7 backs up the iPhone files to here:

CUsers\user\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
