Google Plans Service to Store Users’ Data – WSJ.com

Compare this from the article announcing Google’s plans:

With this from the Windows Live Skydrive Site:

Skydrive

Now, in case your are interested in storing data online and sharing data, no need to wait. You can get started with SkyDrive today.

Feel free to comment 🙂 I’m sure you can find some examples you believe Skydrive might be copying from.
