Chris -
Whichever way you slice SkyDrive, it's beyond the 2- to 5-GB range: If you're an existing user who acts now, you've got a massive 25GB. If you're an existing user who doesn't act now (or soon), or a new user just signing up, you get 7GB.

How can anyone take someone named 'The EDGE' seriously.

Seriously ....

re: If Bono Loves Dropbox, Shouldn't You?
Chris, I enjoyed the article and the term "BYOC". All the vendors you mention above deliver mobile access to files via "cloud storage," which in their parlance means "hosted storage services run by them." We think that uploading files to a third party is an unnecessary tradeoff, particularly when businesses often have their own storage infrastructure. As Jerry Johnson indicates above, our customers have told us that they want the "mindless simplicity" of Dropbox, the deployment speed of SaaS, all with the control of private storage infrastructure. We think it's possible to deliver this type of service, without the compromises, so customers can finally "find what they're looking for."

I hope to see more articles from you and Informationweek on this subject, and the real options that CIOs and businesses have today. Thanks!

Chris, a lot of CIOs and CISOs are in the midst of developing their mobile strategy and looking at their mobile file sharing options. They know if they don't provide something useful and easy to adopt, their users will find a way, and it might not be secure, and it certainly won't be tracked and managed. I work @Accellion. The company has more than 1400 enterprise customers and 9 million users. One thing that's so appealing to our customers, especially from a data security standpoint, is to be able to choose to deploy on a private cloud and/or public cloud, in a way that's managed, tracked and administered from one point.

Let's see...Exactly 2 yrs ago, Bono & U2 were shilling for BlackBerry -- http://www.slate.com/articles/... I think that says plenty about them as a reference for technology adoption.
