Spotlight: Microsoft updates SkyDrive

Provides a single screen for sharing

This week, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) announced some upgrades to the way you share files on SkyDrive, greatly improving the sharing process by building a single screen for it. You can manage permissions and share by email, on Facebook (NASDAQ: FB) and so forth, and you can define whether users have permission to edit or not--all from a single screen. Microsoft also reworked the way you drag and drop files on touch screens. I tried testing the new sharing on my SkyDrive account, but it wasn't working on my version yet. Microsoft will be rolling out the changes slowly across accounts. For more information, see the Microsoft Inside SkyDrive blog post.
