Microsoft Windows 8 and SkyDrive, Cloud-Based Connectivity [blogs.msdn.com]
Today we’re going to provide an update on how we expect to deliver our vision for Windows 8 and simultaneously scale to meet the needs of billions of customers who will store hundreds of petabytes of data in our service.

We think what people want in personal cloud storage is a single drive that’s available across all of their devices, tailored to the experiences they’re using, providing instant, secure, and private access to their files, and sharing files and folders with people they choose. To bring this to billions of people, our approach is to seamlessly connect the files (and behaviors) that people have today on the PC with the app and device experiences that they will use in the future. Rather than using a patchwork of services, people can use one service to connect to their files – with no compromises. No copying files from one cloud to another just to share or collaborate. No converting files or having to switch to new apps. No searching across different storage areas to find files.

I can't wait to try this out in the Consumer Preview of Windows 8. The question still remains how big the storage will be and what it will cost to get more.

From screenshots i've seen storage will be 100/year for 100gb of space.

There is also a leak this morning of the "dogfood" skydrive (internal) that shows video chat links as well.. wonder if we will see a little skype love integrated into live
