Microsoft replaces SkyDrive with OneDrive

Microsoft has been in a trademark dispute with BSkyB due to the name of it's cloud storage, SkyDrive. So Microsoft has decided to rename it's cloud storage to OneDrive. It is not just changing the name, there might be new features in OneDrive as the description of the OneDrive preview website reads.
Get ready for an even better place to store and share your favorite things across all your favorite devices.OneDrive is everything you love about SkyDrive and more. And it's coming soon.

Microsoft explains the reason behind the change in name in the OneDrive blog."Of course, 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."
