I use Springpad for this kind of stuff.
Always reassuring when a company in this field doesn't take a backup.
Which is why I have my own redundant backup.
lol the point of cloud was to remove the concerns of personal backups and relying on corporations and their server farms to have multiple redundancies... well they failed..
In this case, is the cloud not the backup? The android device has it's copy, and the cloud it's version. If one or the other fails there is always the other. Mind you, with so many clients using the hardware, if it does fail then the chances of the originating device failing increase by a factor of the number of users.
And yes, they should have a backup of their own if they are providing a premium service.
without the exact details of their hardware problem its hard to assume that they didnt make a backup though. if they planned a service like that without a backup, I can't hardly believe that any of the admins would had the balls to agree to that. lol (being an admin myself that is)
Whenever I see a data loss like this I have to wonder if a disgruntled employee or external attack was involved.
Even with fairly rudimentary data protection measures it's kinda difficult to completely lose data in an entirely human-independent way.
