Sidekick Outage a Blow On Microsoft

Sidekick Smartphone

Microsoft Danger, the partnership that brought to the consumers the T-Mobile Sidekick smart phone has announced that it may have lost all or most of the personal data of Sidekick users that are being stored on its servers.

An even sadder thing is that Microsoft Danger may have slim chances of ever restoring or retrieving the lost data. The said loss was said to be due to a supposed server failure at Microsoft Danger base. But others say that it was due to Microsoft Danger’s failure to backup the server data before they went through some upgrading or maintenance on their systems. There is no official word yet from the companies involved concerning what actually happened.
