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?

One thing to backup, another to store

The problem is if you are actually storing the data on internet as the only copy of the files.

It is another thing if you use internet as an alternative backup area, then i see no reason to rule it out as it is only a copy, maybe one of many copies, of the data.
