Microsoft loses T-Mobile Sidekick data

Hard to believe, but apparently a Microsoft subsidiary unfortunately but aptly named Danger managed to lose all data, which means all personal data on a Sidekick that was stored in the cloud is gone, never to return. Worse, any personal data on the Sidekick will be gone once it is turned off or the battery goes dead.

How could they not have done redundant multiple backups? Isn’t that Rule #1?
