Editorial Now that everything is moving to the cloud internet, you might think that data loss is a thing of the past. Sadly, as the past few months have taught us, this actually isn't true; we first had the Microsoft/Danger disaster, and now we have Palm and Sprint facing a class-action lawsuit over data loss for webOS phones. All this raises the question: how safe is it to store your precious data on the internet, and do you really trust the internet?

I trust in the cloud, the problem I see is that it has been bad implemented, all data in one server? that's stupid, I'd make sure that my cloud provider has the information replicated in more than one place to avoid data lost.


Put it this way - is it worse implemented than the usual alternative, where someone's data isn't just on one server, but on one physical disk on their laptop? The worst cloud provider is at least no worse than what for most people is the status quo...
