@laranz yes, like Google Drive, iCloud and DropBox. I don’t understand why do we need so many services that look exactly the same, they could spend their time in creating something new and original. I’m using DropBox btw, on my computer, laptop and smartphone, and I’m not switching to any other.
FYI Skydrive has been around for at least 3 years….

The devil is in the details (UI etc), and for Microsoft those details take a while to crystallize – usually a few versions of public usage before they hit off ;) Instantly ruins their edge!

Because, users need to have few options to choose from. That way, service will be better, and cheaper.

The more options, the cheaper the price. Basic economics. Besides, iCloud is shit for anything other than the established formats synced so that’s not even an option.
