I just don't trust the Cloud and I bet Sidekick customers no longer trust it either. I want to make my own backups, thanks. I am comfortable with non-critical stuff, like using Gmail as a convenient dump for years of e-mail. But I don't have enough faith in the Cloud to, say, trust Flickr with my only set of pictures.Then I read more and found out that the T-Mobile/Sidekick/Danger/Microsoft fiasco can't be chalked up to cloud computing, but to the astounding fact that MICROSOFT DIDN'T BACK UP THE DATA. Ballmer needs to go pronto and the entire org structure needs to be rebuilt. Tie this in with the fact that Windows Mobile 6.5 is a turd and there's a recipe for shareholder revolt. Microsoft will soon be Seattle's GM once the cash bleed starts.
