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?

No reason at all to trust one's data to a third party corporation with more reason to misuse and release your information than to protect it.


You are not going to release your important information in the wild unencrypted, aren't you?
As long as it's encrypted and you also have a physical copy in a secure place, you have the best of both worlds. I would bet that it's safer in Google's datacenters than in your own pocket.
