The switchover will occur over the coming months—subscribers current get 1 TB of storage with both OneDrive (consumer) and OneDrive for Business—but it has already altered the cloud storage landscape permanently. With this change, cloud storage is no longer viable as a standalone service. Now, it's a perk, or feature, of other products or services.</p> </div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Office 365 OneDrive Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:26:00 +0000 45551 at An Offer You Can't Refuse?

The bad news?

I do this many times to see where the competition is with regards to Microsoft's solutions. But I'm also not shy about using non-Microsoft solutions when they're better. This isn't about cheerleading a company, which confuses some people. It's about making sure that all of us—me, you, everyone—are using the best products.

It is here, I think, that Microsoft's "mobile first, cloud first" mantra is most clearly seen, because the services that impact end users directly are those that make the most sense on mobile devices.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Windows Phone Skype Bing Cloud Windows 8 Xbox One Mobile devices Windows RT Office 365 OneDrive Sun, 31 Aug 2014 13:24:00 +0000 42941 at
