  1. Microsoft is renaming its SkyDrive cloud storage to OneDrive. The software giant has registered onedrive.com and the company has a promotional video on YouTube announcing the new name. Microsoft says the name change will take place soon, and that the service "will continue to operate as you expect, and all of your content will be available on OneDrive and OneDrive for Business respectively as the new name is rolled out across the portfolio." The name change comes more than six months after Microsoft was forced to rename SkyDrive following a trademark case with British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB). Microsoft is positioning the new OneDrive naming as the one place for documents, photos, and other content. "Changing the name of a product as loved as SkyDrive wasn’t easy," admits Microsoft's Ryan Gavin. "We are excited about what is to come, and can’t wait to share more."

  2. As a result of an infringement suit with BSkyB, Microsoft was recently forced to change the name of its SkyDrive service to OneDrive. With this new branding, Microsoft has been on the campaign trail of promotion, and today, has offered what looks, at least initially, to be a pretty sweet deal. OneDrive users can capitalize on the opportunity to grab 100GB of cloud storage space for free, but there are, as ever, a couple of conditions to the offer, which we shall reveal after the jump. As standard, OneDrive users get 7GB of space, which certainly isn’t bad. However, even if we don’t plan on using vast amounts of storage, it’s always nice to have it there just incase, and let’s be honest – 100 GB is a pretty appealing amount of real estate. But the first thing to note about this deal, is that your 100 gigs will only last for one year, after which, you will have to pay if you want to retain all of those lovely bytes. Moreover, you will have to spend 100 Bing Rewards points to get your 100GB, although since these are fairly easily obtained, it’s not such a huge deal. You can accrue Bing Rewards points for performing Bing Web searches and inviting friends to Bing Rewards, and since the latter, for example, will get you 200 points, you won’t really need to put in much work to get this 100GB. The rationale is to get you using Bing and OneDrive, and moreover, paying for OneDrive once your year is up. By offering such a large amount, it lures people into adding swathes of important information to the Microsoft servers, and when that free year is finally up, you end up paying to continue using a service that you’ve accustomed yourself to. Of course, you could easily push your data to a hard drive once the year is up, but then, in essence, you could just do that anyway. The cost of 100GB for a year is $50, which isn’t bad given that OneDrive is, in my experience, pretty darned good, but if you can’t see yourself as using Microsoft’s cloud service for the long haul, then perhaps you’re better off spending your Bing Rewards points on other things, like gift vouchers. Initially, Microsoft offered free 100GB of storage to the first 100,000 users who signed up for OneDrive. If you missed out on that offer, then this could be your best bet, but then again, it’s for a year only, which quite frankly, isn’t that bad. Redeem your 100GB OneDrive storage through Bing Rewards,This offer is currently for U.S.-only. Source
  3. Microsoft released a number of updates for Windows 8.1 RT, Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2, and among the updates was something a bit unexpected: a SkyDrive update that brings back the sync icon in the taskbar and updates SkyDrive settings. The Support page (KB 2923768) doesn’t give a lot of details, only revealing: "This update improves the Skydrive experience for all users in Windows RT 8.1, Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2." However installing the update packages reveals a number of changes to SkyDrive (not yet including the name change, however). LiveSide reader @Tuzem_2 tweeted us a couple of screenshots of the changes: If you’ve been brave enough to download the leaked Windows 8.1 Update 1 that’s floating around the internet, you’re already aware that the sync icon was coming back, however we weren’t aware that it would show up so soon, or on Windows 8.1. You can check for a Windows 8.1 update by going to the charms bar>settings>Change PC Settings>Update and Recovery and update your system to see the changes, and to get the SkyDrive sync icon back! Notice any other changes in SkyDrive? Let us know below Source

  5. Thanks in part to a lawsuit by BSkyB that forced a renaming of SkyDrive to OneDrive, Microsoft suddenly finds itself with a coherent set of services, all well named, and just in time for a new year full of new features and new promise. Today, at the SharePoint 2014 conference in Las Vegas, Microsoft unveiled new plans for SharePoint, including the availability of Service Pack 1, but also for the newly renamed OneDrive for Business (formerly SkyDrive Pro). The previous and somewhat unfortunate name didn’t do justice to what OneDrive for Business is becoming: a simple but professional solution for small and medium business users to manage their storage in the cloud, and have it work seamlessly with SharePoint and/or Office, with Office 365, or with the also newly renamed Office Online suite of free online tools. Starting on April 1, 2014, Microsoft will make “OneDrive for Business with Office Online” available for users as a standalone service, with no need for a SharePoint or an Office 365 subscription. Microsoft is making the standalone version of OneDrive for Business, including 25GB of storage per user, for an introductory price of $2.50 per month per user (a 50% discount, available until September 2014): The standalone offer gives businesses 25 GB of storage per employee with the option to purchase additional storage, offline sync and access from multiple devices and platforms, and a strong set of enterprise-ready administrative controls. And when you’re ready for more Office 365 services, like business-class email or online meetings, it’s easy to add them. It has taken Microsoft some time, including a number of false starts on product naming, to get to where it’s at today with Office 365, Office Online, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint, but this new suite of productivity services seems to be really coming into its own. Complete with a robust cross platform play (featuring apps for iOS and Android, as well as Windows Phone), a coherent upgrade path leading from entry level to professional grade services, and the momentum that comes from a maturing set of services, OneDrive for Business looks to be at the center of a new push for Microsoft to take back what it’s always held title to: the leader in office productivity.
