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?

Permanent Fatal Error ... it is hardly about "I have nothing to hide" philosophy [and it's a childish way of thinking too]. It is rather about: "will they use my data to track me / make money on me / spy me / sell it / use targeted marketing on me ... or ... "will someone else gain an access to the data stored on their servers?". Just use your imagination. Don't be that straightforwardly naive.

I hope you're using Tor and you encrypt all your messages (SMSs, mails, chats, etc), because otherwise you are already being tracked and served.
