Amazon's cloud crash destroyed many customers' data

Hopefully they take better measure to keep their servers up. They employ to tell them that things are going bad. I think there may be more here. Personally i use the new service. I honestly like it a lot. very convenient.

And people wonder why I dont like the idea of cloud storage/computing.

I trust ME with my information and files. If I mess them up well then that sucks for me, but at least I know what 'I' did wrong and why I'm to blame.

Last thing I want is a cyber attack or server crashes to destroy my data.
