Default Microsoft Recovers Sidekick Data

I heard quite a bit about this, how does such a big company lose such important data?

Quote:
The online service backs up contacts, photos, calendar appointments and other personal data stored on the mobile phones of Sidekick T Mobile customers.

Microsoft Corporate Vice President Roz Ho says that all data will be restored, beginning with personal contacts.

She believes that only a minority of Sidekick users are still affected.

"The outage was caused by a system failure that created data loss in the core database and the back up," she wrote in an open letter to customers.
Is the Sidekick even available in the UK?



It's kinda like Google loosing all my gmail contacts and calendars. You just can't imagine such a large company being vulnerable in that way...

Anyway, after 4 days, they say they've got it all back!
