SkyDrive is now called OneDrive

Microsoft has been forced to change there cloud based storage platform SkyDrive to OneDrive, this is due to Rupert Murdoch’s empire. It seems BSkyB which is only known as Sky in the UK could provide a similar product.

I find it funny they have not asked Microsoft to rename their Skype product aswell as this too provide similar functions around telephone services, as Skype clearly as the the SKYpe in the name.

Over the past few years Microsoft has come up with some really decent products with very suitable names, it’s just a shame they are being forced to rebrand due to other companies worrying about competition that doesn’t directly compete. Metro was a brilliant name for the Windows 8 UI, similar to SkyDrive.
