Google has previously come under fire for supporting the American Legislative Exchange Council, more commonly called ALEC, which skews towards the "denier" side of the climate change sciences. That changed today, with Google's Eric Schmidt saying the company's support was a "mistake".
Ramping up again its marketing tactics, Microsoft has announced a time-limited offer for OneDrive across all supported platforms.
