    I was looking into changing to skydrive because the Dropbox space is running low but came into a showstopper, the way skydrive handles shared folders, in Dropbox you can just sync the folder, it replicates the files in both accounts, in Skydrive you can't sync shared folders you can only access it on the web interface, so going to stick with Dropbox and probably offload stuff that is only for me to Skydrive in order to save space on Dropbox.

    Eh? Drop the folder in your skydrive folder, and it'll replicate. Unless it's totally broken in a new and interesting way.

    Hmm, I have skydrive on multiple computers and all are synched as folders, just like they are in dropbox.

    OK I didn't explained it well.
    On Dropbox I have a folder that is shared with another person anything that I put there it appears on both our accounts. On Skydrive if another person shares a folder with me I have to go to the web interface to see the files, you can't have a folder on the desktop that shares with multiple persons on different accounts you have to use the web interface.

    I haven't tried this on the Touchpad yet, but for you Android folks out there, I ran across this writeup on the Twitters for an free Android SkyDrive app that looks pretty decent:

    I was planning on using my free 25GB skydrive space to store old projects and files I'm not currently working on. But the client uploads stuff so fucking slowly, and wrecks my entire net connection as it does it. After a few days of this, I've disabled it and moved the stuff back to the dropbox folder, which uploaded it all again quickly with no problems.

    So it doesn't look like I'm going to be dropping my dropbox subscription any time soon after all.
