OneDrive Is Microsoft's Rebranded Name For SkyDrive 197

SmartAboutThings writes with news that Microsoft finally figured out what to rename SkyDrive, after losing rights to the trademark last year. From the article: "Microsoft has just announced that SkyDrive, their cloud storage service, will be renamed to OneDrive very soon. This follows the news of trademark infringement case filed by British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB) last year over SkyDrive branding. Microsoft had initially hinted at fighting BSkyB's claims over SkyDrive branding, but then decided to step back and rebrand their cloud offering. The Redmond giant has registered and has also posted a promotional video on YouTube announcing the upcoming change."

    Three versions of Windows 8 for the Elven-kings under the sky,
    Seven System Management Apps for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
    Nine Office Productivity Tools for Mortal Men doomed to die,
    One XBox for the Dark Lord on his dark sharepoint site
    In the Land of Redmond where the Shadows lie.
    One Cloud to rule them all, One Cloud to find them,
    One EULA to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
    In the Land of Redmond where the Shadows lie.
