This could be another major setback for cloud services:

Regrettably, based on Microsoft/Danger's latest recovery assessment of their systems, we must now inform you that personal information stored on your device - such as contacts, calendar entries, to-do lists or photos - that is no longer on your Sidekick almost certainly has been lost as a result of a server failure at Microsoft/Danger.

"All user data is automatically and securely backed up over-the-air"

Well, that's even true - unfortunately the Service itself wasn't backed up properly...

Honestly, I have always been surprised that this has not happened earlier. Time-to-market, faster and faster. I am sure many Operators don't even know that they are just lucky (for the time being)!
