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 do, in fact, live in a small town. Like most people, I have skeletons in my closet, but I learned years ago that keeping secrets online is just short of impossible, so I just don't put things online that I don't want people to see.

As for Google using my information to target me for marketing... that's fine with me. As I said in my original post, the more Google knows about me, the better it can deliver the search results and services that I will be interested in. Bottom line is, the pros of Google knowing a lot about me outweigh the cons.
