I still use my iPad Mini on a daily basis, and will likely replace it with a Mini 4 sometime this year. But then I'm "old" (48), need reading glasses these days, and appreciate the extra screen size over my android phone for casual use around the house and watching videos.

Comment Cheese? (Score 1) 740

I notice they exempted milk and cheese from the law. It couldn't possibly be because Vermont cheese is a big deal and virtually all cheese is technically GMO now (very few cheese makers get their rennet by cutting open a calf these days). The labelling law is stupid, but if you're going to do it, don't be hypocrites about it.

It does in the short term. Most of the cloud services let you recover/undelete a file for up to 30 days.

You're right that it's not a "real backup", but honestly you aren't going to get most people to do a real backup with any consistency. Cloud backup of a documents folder is a useful stopgap.
