Techcrunch is really good at exposing new ventures and services, but the post "Windows Live Skydrive doubles storage to 1 GB, still can't keep up with GMail" is absurd:
Microsoft doubled the online storage consumers can get for free in Windows Live SkyDrive. It’s hard to get excited about that when Gmail is already giving me 2.9 GB of storage, with more on the way—4GB by the end of the month, and 6GB by early January, according to one estimate.
Then the "echo chamber" start posting the same things around...
What's wrong with that? Google Gmail is an e-mail service, Live Skydrive is a storage service. They are different things. You can copy files to Skydrive, make them public or private. It's not the same with GMail.
Techcrunch should compare Gmail with Live Mail, which by the way already offer 5GB for your e-mails...
