Microsoft has just announced the official new name for the cloud based storage service known as SkyDrive. From now on the service has been trademarked as OneDrive! Many may ask, why on God’s green earth would they name it OneDrive, and its simple. It’s ONE drive for all of content, easily obtained on any device. That reason and also the lawsuit against SkyDrive…but moving right along! Check out the promo of the rebranded service below:
”Changing the name of a product as loved as SkyDrive wasn’t easy. We believe the new OneDrive name conveys the value we can deliver for you and best represents our vision for the future. We are excited about what is to come, and can’t wait to share more.”
