According to a Techcrunch 10-10-09 news a crash at Microsoft’s Danger servers resulted in the lost of all user personal data and they don’t have a backup!
The news says:
T-Mobile and Danger, the Microsoft-owned subsidiary that makes the Sidekick, has just announced that they’ve likely lost all user data that was being stored on Microsoft’s servers due to a server failure. That means that any contacts, photos, calendars, or to-do lists that haven’t been locally backed up are gone.
And there is no backup for the data. Really smart, Microsoft people. That says a lot!
This is gonna be in an information security textbook near you. How about in a textbook on Human-Computer No-Interaction?
