SkyDrive vs Google Drive vs Dropbox vs Apple iCloud- Comparison

 

With the release of Google drive, the cloud storage competition has become more intense. Microsoft’s SkyDrive had released a desktop version for Mac and Windows just before the release of Google Drive. There has also been discussions on privacy policy and terms of use of Google drive. Now as a user which cloud storage is good for you? Each one has its own advantages and improvement areas, so there isn’t one clear winner here. But Microsoft has put up a comparison chart for SkyDrive, iCloud, Dropbox and Google Drive. Since the comparison is from Microsoft, obviously the winner would be SkyDrive.

SkyDrive vs Google Drive vs Dropbox vs Apple iCloud

Storage wise, SkyDrive is the best as it offers more GBs than others and is also priced lowest when compared to the market leader Dropbox. SkyDrive does not have an Android app, but you can check the alternatives here.

So its now up to the users to decide on which is good for them.

Thanks Neowin

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…

Windows 10: Microsoft retires HomeGroup

Microsoft plans to remove the HomeGroup functionality from its Windows 10 operating system. The company made the first step towards that goal in the most recent Insider Preview version of Windows 10 as it disabled it in that build.
In "a note about HomeGroup" in the release announcement of the Windows 10 Insider Build, Microsoft confirms that HomeGroup will be retired.
The company introduced HomeGroup in Windows 7 as a new option for home users to access printers, files, and media in home networks. The core idea was to assign all devices to a single HomeGroup to share access to files and printers between all devices.
It is unclear how popular the feature was and is. It is clear however that it was never the only option that Windows users had in this regard, and it was not the best either for certain use cases. You could not add Mac OS X or Linux devices to a HomeGroup for instance.
The end of HomeGroup
