If Google Lost My Data

23 Feb ’07

Larry Dignan says that if Google Office loses data, there’s be no downside for them – because it’s at best a side venture for Google. This as part of a discussion over whether people will take to the idea of their data online. I just don’t think that’s right. I think that if Google Office starts toasting data, it will be widely known in a heartbeat, and no one who cares about their data – so, the entire business market Google is trying to reach with the ‘side venture’ – will drop it like a hot potato. The venture, side or not, will be incinerated until Google makes amends and wins back trust. This is not the same as Gmail hiccups – this is an out-of-beta paying gig (all joking aside).
