Aover the last few months about Palm’s WebOS “backup” being a bit less than stellar. Stories of people losing contacts, calendar data, etc have been pretty common, especially tied in with OS updates and hardware swaps.
The gist of the suit appears to be that Palm not only offered an unreliable web backup, it also did not offer any simple way to make a hard, offline backup of any data in case the web version failed. Sounds vaguely reminiscent of the Sidekick debacle, though this seems to be one-off cases, rather than an issue across the whole system.
Have you been burned by WebOS backups? Do you trust the cloud with the only copy of your data? Let us know!
