Why do none of the headlines mention Microsoft?

T-Mobile is taking a big hit for losing its Sidekick phone's users' data; though, it didn't really lose it, Microsoft the owner and operator of the servers lost it.

Yes, T-Mobile has the contracts with the users and is culpable for having entrusted the data with Microsoft, it having bought a company called Danger. I suppose that's a trendy name; but, to my mind, it's kind of like putting your money in Joe's Bank, would you?

People are pissed at T-Mobile and most of them probably have a Windows computer. And yes, I'm a bit out of sorts when it comes to MS this year having spent upwards of a week and a couple of thousand bucks getting rid of it after it ate the data on my office computer.

And what's with these people anyway? No backups? They deserve what they got, kind of.

I hadn't heard of the Evil Empire connection... but it's always nice to have a prejudice reinforced.
