I'm sure anyone smart enough to be a tech blogger was smart enough to back up his work somewhere else besides the cloud...don't you think?

IMO I think that Microsoft have stuffed things up with this new operating system going cloud, if they have problems like this already imagine how many law suits they would get if they lost their personal information online.

call me paranoid, but i am really not looking forward to the day that the OS goes fully to the cloud,
especially if files and personal data are also stored in the cloud, i can see 2 things happening:
1) a hell of a lot of server space is going to be needed to store peoples junk, this is why i dont think it will actually happen, and documents and such will still be stored locally
2) if they are stored in the cloud, then MS might as well hold up a big Ol' sign saying "Hackers come here"

In todays society, it's not paranoia. It's a very valid concern.
