Description

A message from the Office Live Workspace team: Stop emailing yourself files! Smiley 

Office Live Workspace is a free service - currently in private beta - for document access, storage and sharing "in the cloud". The service will be open to anyone with a Windows Live ID and (currently) gives you 500MB of space for Office documents, images, PDF files, custom lists and more.

I was interested to see how Office Live Workspace differed to Windows Live SkyDrive so we sat down with Eric from the Office Live team at CES 2008 for a demo.

Make sure you check out the OLW website for more information or to register for the private beta: http://workspace.officelive.com/

    I'm pretty excited about what is going on with Office Live in general.  With products like SkyDrive, Office Live and Windows Home Server, I wonder if OEM PC/Notebook manufacturers will start to move away from bundling ever larger hard-drives.  We really don't need it.  I think a PC/Notebook with a 80GB SSD is in my future.

    I think you're right - however as SSD technology matures we will probably see cheaper and much larger drives. I'm sure 500GB SSD's aren't that far away,.. Smiley
