Microsoft’s obsession with everything "Live" continues as it gave a few
details about its forthcoming ‘Live Drive’ service – yet another online
But hey, this one you get to be tied into – sorry I mean synchronised –
from Vista, if it ever arrives and if you actually buy it.
Early indications are that it’ll offer a free 2 gigabytes of storage, with additional space available for a fee.
It’ll likely go head to head with Google, who are expected to announce a Google Drive service, as well as offerings from AOL, Yahoo, and a myriad of third party solutions.
Two gigs isn’t really a huge amount in the world of digital
entertainment, and it’s still an online solution that could lull users
into a false sense of security. Hmm… Microsft… security… yah well
It’s a continuing push by Microsoft to get you doing everything "Live"
and pledging your allegiance as one of the Redmond faithful.
