Snow Leopard hungers for your data


Usually, Microsoft makes the big security blunders, but with Snow Leopard Apple shows they can also compete with Microsoft when it comes to making really awful security mistakes. How awful? How about making it possible to easily lose all of your data? Is that bad enough for you?

And, here I was feeling sorry for the Sidekick users who lost all their so-called smartphone data )! It’s one thing to lose all your mobile phone files that should have been kept safely on the cloud, it’s a much bigger disaster when you lose all your PC’s data.

Apple has admitted that Snow Leopard can sometime lose everything a user has in his or her home folder. The company also promises a fix Real Soon Now. Don’t you just hate that?
