One of the largest complaints with documents shared on SkyDrive was that others couldn’t edit collaborated documents if they didn’t have a Microsoft account.

These changes definitely will make it easier to share and collaborate specific documents. SkyDrive is increasingly adding functionality and is Read more

The rates for world wide calling on Skype are pretty much the same compared to all the other calling card Read more
