As a photographer, I would be very upset!
I don't know what I would do if I lost all of the work that I've done.
Always. Always. Always. back up important files.
You never know what might happen.

Just saw a news story about iphones and ipads. They are the newest items to be stolen and
sold on the black market. It is big bussiness. millions of dollars every year! They are doing a
grab and run type of snatch. So they were saying to be careful not to put your phone where
someone can see it in your purse or hang on tight to it if you are carrying it.

One of my friends had her phone stolen too of course she had naughty nekid pictures of herself on there... Never did return the phone but her pics were spread on the internet...

Lesson learned and this is a great reminder,

However what is cloud? never hard of it and I own a Iphone, does that cost anything to use?

Oh, poor thing! I've had that happen when a laptop crashed a few years back and I lost priceless pics, so I know that feeling. I upload to Snapfish now - and you can upload right from your phone via their app. I know there are other services out there, not really sure about them - I've just been using Snapfish for a long time. Definitely a tough lesson to learn! :(

This is a good lesson to learn. A co-worker of mine lost his iPhone (didn't have password lock on) but had it anonymously returned a few days later with a note that said, "Nice pics of your privates" He's been seriously nervous ever since....

good plan.
I believe there's a 'cloud' service - so you don't have to thether it to another computer if you wish to upload from where you are located (when you remember)

My daughter had her iphone stolen with hundreds of photos she did not back up. She cried for hours, lesson learned. It can happen to anyone of us, so this is a friendly reminder to store pics in a safe place to where this won't happen to you.
