1 Billion PCs at risk

By | March 1st, 2008

According to Forrester Research there will be 1 Billion PCs in use by the end of 2008. 50 billion photos snapped by consumers in 2007. You’d think if we care enough about our travels, kids, and memories to take those photos, we’d care enough to make sure we didn’t lose them. But it seems we don’t. Almost half of us have lost data and still less than one in four of us are doing regular backups.

At Backblaze, we hope to change that and make the world just a bit better. We’re creating an online backup solution that will be so easy our office dog Gromit could use it, so secure your bank will look like a social network, and so high-performance that you’ll swear your computer runs faster when you use it. Request a beta code – it might just save your memories.
