Microsoft has updated its OneDrive and Office products with more collaboration features. The updates apply to a range of form factors, including PCs, tablets, and smartphones. Moving forward, OneDrive will allow people to sync shared folders directly to their desktop, which lets them be edited directly on smartphones and PCs. Microsoft also added several ways for users to be alerted when others edit their shared documents. The OneDrive app on mobile devices can provide real-time notifications of which document is being edited and who performed the edits. The app can push these alerts to the Apple Watch, if users so choose, and Microsoft will send emails detailing all the changes once the edits to the shared document are complete. Last, OneDrive now makes it possible for people to search for documents based not only on the file name, but on the contents therein. Microsoft said these changes are rolling out to its various apps over the next few weeks.

Well will it alert people...

When its uploaded their pictures to a governmental organization? Seems to me contextual scanning of automatically uploaded images is a dicey legal territory, or it might be if we had rights we didn't have to agree away to use the service.
Its not an accident either, Picasa sync is enabled by default when you setup google sync, and when it prompts you, you can say "Yes" or "Cancel", but there's no "Hell No" option. Most phonescoop readers can manually disable it pretty easily but many dont know how, and many times people will end up hitting "Yes" when it asks you again and again and again.
