So I now see OneDrive's branding in the Office Online (App's Titlebar) If I'm not mistaken, they originally said "Skydrive" Right?

Do You Guys See it Too?:

Honestly, why does Microsoft keep renaming these things? I'd imagine if you sat down an average consumer and asked them to pin down the name of MS services it would be a lot like playing whack-a-mole. They change far too much far too fast name wise.

This time for legal reasons BSkyB wanted the name they don't want anyone else to use the Sky

as what anothercookie said..

 

if you have products and you do not want the name changes, make sure you use your own brand, not use brand from others...  which is why this causes confusion to the users and you may get the lawsuits.

 

Seems to me that almost everything are not original these days.    For example, Sky TV, SkyDrive,  almost everyone use 'Sky' in their brand.

Doesn't Microsoft have a legal department? Shouldn't they sort these issues out before they publicly launch these products?

 

I just don't see how they hope to make it in the consumer space with the constant name changing. Brands take time to build... You can't be restarting that process all the time.

I have logged in a few times today, didn't get any extra space. I tried again as soon as I saw Ian's post, literally about 1 minute after the last time I tried, and BAM! 100GB free. lol

That's because the offer only came into effect at 11:11am PST.  Users gained the extra space only if they logged in starting then.

 

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

It still says SkyDrive if you check the drop down menu from Outlook, People, or Calender.  That will change soon I'm sure.

I just got an email offering 20GB for one year also an additional code to give to someone else. If you use both codes you get 20GB for two years instead of 40GB for one year.

Has anyone been able to get the 3GB camera roll bonus? I enabled the feature and uploaded some photos but haven't received it. Do I need to upload a certain quantity of photos or something?

They just agreed to the terms, because they wanted to make a deal with Sky for Xbox One, so they didn't want to fight them in court.

I never got the Window Phone bonus thing, even though I am signed in.
