Microsoft confirms SkyDrive app for Windows 8 | Microsoft - CNET News

With Apple and Microsoft offering platform-integrated cloud services, and with Google expected to launch its “GDrive” soon, I don’t see how there’s an ongoing opportunity for Dropbox and similar service providers

SkyDrive, Microsoft's cloud storage product, will be getting a Metro-style app with Windows 8, the company announced today.

Also coming for SkyDrive will be a desktop app for Internet Explorer and the ability to fetch remote files from the Web, the software giant revealed on its Building Window 8 blog.

Microsoft intends for SkyDrive to "evolve with Windows 8 from a website today into a true device cloud for Windows customers," Mike Torres and Omar Shahine, group program managers for SkyDrive, wrote in the post.
