re: Xbox One To Offer Unlimited Cloud Storage
Well, this explains why Microsoft is dedicating more servers to the Xbox than either Facebook or Yahoo have in their respective data centers. Something interesting about all this: with Skype and Yammer flowing from Windows 8 to Office 365 to the Xbox, Microsoft's unified communication ambitions are starting to take shape-- and they're pretty big. This is the kind of "one Microsoft" unity that Steve Ballmer talked about, with several different divisions of the company involved in the end user experience. It sounds appealing on paper, and it certainly looks like Microsoft has some to play in the cloud game. But as always, what's planned on paper isn't always what plays out in practice.
