If you use Cloud Storage as your preferred method of storing your files, then it might be nice if you could send files from Windows Explorer directly to the file storage service of your choice by right clicking on the file and select from the ensuing menus to send to file to lets say your Dropbox account or perhaps your Google Drive account, well you can hack Windows 7 to add this type of functionality to your system, check out this article with the details HERE.

If you use the cloud storage service SkyDrive then you’ll probably be happy to know that you now have a SkyDrive iPhone and Windows Phoneapp that you can use to upload and access your SkyDrive on the Go, would be nice to see an Android App at some point as well, for more check out the official post regarding these apps release HERE.

EDIT: This is a Windows Phone Dev App, So I’m Not totally sure as to how much functionality you’ll get out the app on the Windows Phone Platform but It’s worth a try!

So Windows Live Beta is now out of beta and is called “Windows Live” which was a mind blower, thought microsoft would try to change it to a cooler name or something. All jokes aside this collection of programs are actually pretty useful, things like the movie maker are individual specific, but a service such as SkyDrive which offers I think up to 5GB Free Cloud Storage can’t be topped, I currently am attempting to get a Dropbox solution going on with my computers so that all of my day-to-day data is synced across machines but because of the 2 GB limitation on Dropbox, I think I will seriously consider using SkyDrive some how as a place to store my work files.
