400 Bad Request accessing Azure Blob Storage

This one was kind of dumb. I'm posting it in hope someone doesn't loose as much time as I've lost. When I was trying to retrive a Blob Container object from Azure Blog Storage, I kept getting a "400 Bad Request" exception. After 3 hours I gave up and asked a friend to look at my code. In 3 minutes he spot the bug: I was using the Table Storage credentials on the acces to the Blob Storage.

Wrong code:
BlobStorage blobs = BlobStorage.Create(
Right code:
BlobStorage blobs = BlobStorage.Create(
The StorageAccountInfo class has 3 methods to retrieve default credentials: GetDefaultTableStorageAccountFromConfiguration(), GetDefaultBlobStorageAccountFromConfiguration(), and GetDefaultQueueStorageAccountFromConfiguration(). One for each storage Azure has. Big names with little differences between them...
