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?

You are totally missing why online storage is such a great thing because you are looking at it as an individual rather than from a business perspective.

There is one sure rule that forms the foundation of a successful career: "Always have somebody else to blame."

You see if I'm Joe the middle management IT guy, and I store the company data in-house and something catastrophic happens to it, I'm going to get canned. But if it's been out-sourced to an online company, I'm in the clear. It's their fault. In fact, I would recommend to the boss that we sue their pants off.

I wonder if I can earn commission on revenue from litigation...
