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?

Dont be daft, a proper backup means that you have at least 3 copies of your data in different places (drives/media) It's a foolproof protocol even used by Nasa on spaceflights. It will work for the home user as good as a company. Try that storing your data on a cloud. You have no idea what it will be used for and how it will be stored. In Fact you loose control. Simple. If you are to lazy to be bothered with backing up dont look for an easy way out. There never is.
