    Microsoft recently lost a lawsuit brought against them by Sky, a Robert Maxwell company based in the UK. So Skydrive has been renamed to Onedrive. If you already have a Skydrive account it will just automatically change over and you don't need to do anything. The new website can be found here:

    Kind of a shame as "skydrive" was one of the better names from Microsoft (honestly some of the names Microsoft came up with some of their products are rather lame such as Bing, Hotmail, and adding rather meaningless numbers like 7 and 8 to the end of windows, heck the name windows has become meaningless as of l8 :)... well windows itself as a name has become meaningless as from what I understand the name came from Windowed DOS)
