Last week, I reported that OneDrive raised the ceiling on free storage, and that Google Drive was one of two other free providers (Copy.com is the other) to match their 15 GB storage allotment. I also reported that by signing up for Office 365, MS subscribers obtain a 1 TB OneDrive storage...

In the wake of Microsoft's announcement of the new Surface Pro 3 earlier this week, and the blizzard of articles that have followed in its wake, I'm both amused and bemused to understand that things at the upper end of the laptop and tablet marketplace are becoming increasingly blurred.
