Although not as popular as Dropbox many of use Microsoft’s cloud storage and synchronization service – Skydrive. Following a lawsuit with Sky Broadcasting last year, which Microsoft lost, we knew they would have to change the name. Today they announced the new name – OneDrive.
Microsoft are also promising that there will be new features and information and that OneDrive will be your “one place’ for files, pictures and videos. Microsoft were not specific about when the name would change, although it will be ‘soon’.
Why does this matter to us? The likelihood is Microsoft will run promotions when they change the name – there is a good chance this would include free online space. This is less valuable than it used to be but still worth getting.
