Microsoft Skydrive updated to OneDrive

Microsoft was ordered to change the name of Skydrive due to a lawsuit. Which they finally unveiled OneDrive this week. Microsoft also launched a new way to earn up to 8GB of storage on the web, that’s on top of the 7GB of free storage. Which isn’t most of our best option for cloud storage, especially if you are all-in on Google services, Google Drive is probably still a better option, or even Dropbox.

Let’s have a moment of silence for Google Currents. With their latest update, Google has basically killed the app and is pushing everyone over to Google Play Newsstand, which is the replacement of Google Currents, and the old Google Play Magazines app.

Waze is now part of Google, and Google has already gone ahead and pushed most of the Waze data into Google Maps. But they are keeping Waze as it’s own standalone app as well. The update this week brings along the ability to sync your calendar with Waze. So that events with locations are automatically added for one tap navigation when its time to go. Waze also added tons of bug fixes to the update as well.
