New SkyDrive Almost Ready To Fly

There is a new version of the free Microsoft Web storage service, SkyDrive, that is almost ready for duty. The update has been in preview (which is one of many words Microsoft uses when it should just say beta) for a while.

Here's what's new: The service, in keeping with Windows 8 and what Microsoft is looking to do with all its cloud/Live services, will get the "modern" look found in Windows 8's new interface.

Also, instead of 25 GB of free storage, which is amazing generous, you only get 7 GB, which is only remarkably generous (at least on the surface). Here's the hook: It is easier to run out of 7 GB, leading you to buy the premium service at $50 a year for 100 GB.
