SkyDrive Hits 250-Million Users Mark
Although 250 million users is noteworthy, there’s plenty of room to grow: more than 700 million people have Microsoft accounts. What are they using, if not SkyDrive? Aside from people who are reluctant to store important documents in the cloud, many people store their files on Google Drive, Dropbox, and Apple iCloud, among others. It’s a crowded field, so the top companies are trying to set themselves apart with aggressive pricing (all of them start with free accounts and offer additional storage for a fee) and high storage caps. And Dropbox, a pioneer in this type of cloud storage, just announced its first developer conference.
