Microsoft Adds FolderShare to Windows Live Service; Goodbye Google Partnership

ZDNet has news that Microsoft has acquired FolderShare, an online file-sharing service and plans to add it to Windows Live.

The technology offers an alternate way to send large files that are too big to be easily e-mailed.

“Our mission for Windows Live is to enable customers to easily find the information, pursue the interests and deepen the relationships that enrich their lives,” Microsoft Vice President Blake Irving said in a statement. “FolderShare technology will help customers access their information anytime, anywhere and on multiple devices, unifying their overall experience.”

I’m guessing that FolderShare’s integration with Google Desktop will be phased out very quickly. :-)
