SkyDrive

  • It looks like Microsoft have just set the cloud storage market on fire by giving completely unlimited storage on OneDrive, (neĆ© SkyDrive), to it's Office 365 users. This is barely a month after they upped the storage level to a very healthy 1TB. This would generally prove to more than adequate storage for most users, but it would appear that adequate is not enough for Microsoft! The biggest problem that any user faces is the upload time it takes to get this amount of data uploaded!

  • So Microsoft had an about face as regards releasing 8.1 early to TechNet and MSDN subscribers and made it available for download on 9th September.

    I've now downloaded it and nuked my work PC so that I can get some out of the box impressions, rather than try the update route for my existing Windows 8 installation. Initial impressions are that the interface is a little more cohesive, but I'm not entirely sure that those that have been complaining about Win 8 will really be any happier.

    There's the much talked about return of the start button, but this really doesn't do anything of note as it just returns you back to the 'Metro' interface. This was what happened anyway if you clicked in that region of the screen, so no real change there.
