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 get locked in to Gmail once you start using tags, that's the lesson here. Although I'm sure you can replicate that locally with a suitable client -- as yet unknown to me...

Will it transfer the labels used in Gmail to (for instance) Thunderbird's labeling system??
