SkyDrive: 25 GB of free online storage

1. Previously, I have written about dropbox, an easy way to sync, back-up, and share files easily. But, the con is, it runs very slow at certain computer, and almost cannot be accessed in low connection speed.

2. Windows Live under Microsoft Cooperation introduced us with huge storage called SkyDrive. Here are a few things you’ll find on your shiny new SkyDrive:

  • 25 GB of free online storage
  • Available in 6 more regions and 13 more languages
  • Download entire folders as Zip files (limited release)
  • Gorgeous online slide show for your photos
  • And much, much more!

3. The limitation of SkyDrive is just it cannot do sync as what dropbox can do (sync with the folders and files on the computer - where you can only drag without opening a browser). However, the connection through internet to this web, is fast. We’re live! You can sign up here: http://skydrive.live.com. What you need is just a live/hotmail e-mail. Now, I have three e-mails, and my e-mail on live/hotmail is anasfaris [at] live [dot] com

4. It seems like Microsoft and Google are competing with each other. Google is in the process of introducing new Operating System, which will create a highly competitive situation with Microsoft. I hope this will bring good effect to the consumer as they will try to produce the best service and price to us.
