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?

Not only that, but even a cheap data center probably is about a billion times safer then any other way you could personally store data. Unless you have your data on raid-10 machines in a climate controlled room with redundant power and security guards.
