How many times are Microsoft going to keep shooting themslefves in the foot with idiotic decision after idiotic decision. It’s a wonder they have any feet left they’ve shot them so much.

I still can’t help but wonder why people rely on third-party online storage “solutions” at all. For users looking for more storage, it’s typically cheaper to simply buy a hard drive than to pay for online storage. Also, depending on one’s internet connection, it’s probably faster to use said hard drive, than to download/upload data to/from the storage servers. As for accessing files from multiple devices, programs like OwnCloud can achieve the same end, without having to rely on third parties who are almost guaranteed to find ways to abuse your reliance on them.
