Something terrible happened to me on the inaugural eve of Apple’s iCloud service going live. Something catastrophic. Apple’s MobileMe servers hiccuped and ate all of my calendars.
Remember that sound Superman made when Lois Lane died in the classic 1979 movie? Mine was louder.
Sometimes electronics can fail us. Sometimes the internet goes down. Sometimes the power blacks out. Sometimes your computer hard drive gives up the ghost. And sometimes those nifty calendars we put in the cloud that happily sync with our portable devices & home computers get eaten by server failure. What are we to do?
