Tech Notes There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who dont!

Web Storage is Back and boy its increasing.. just googling alone gives out atleast 50+ free web storage sites and even worse reviews about them then where does Windows Live SkyDrive stand ? believe it or not SkyDrive although currently gives just a Gigabyte of storage (hoping fingerscrossed it increases) and still in beta, it Rocks!

My Score Points:

Reliability :
Storing those important files on a site unknown to storing on Microsoft Site smile_regular and for all the paranoid ones check out the url (https://...) its a TLS 1.0, RC4 with 128 bit encryption (High); RSA with 1024 bit exchange connection.

Easy Web Interface.

Connect :
Share docs, pics and files with friends in your IM and Address book.

Host :
Host Files for Public Downloads!

Upload limits :
50MB.

Now what it really needs is a desktop interface for Skydrive and although such a kool service i don't find people opening a browser to store files especially ones who are used to the unofficial GMail Drive, many expect an interface or SkyDrive's API to be out soon for people like me who cant wait here's a crude alternate, i built for myself preety basic as i was just looking for looks since it already had the functionality. Basic EULA Rules Apply.
