GMail Accidentally Resets 150 000 Accounts

Cloud 2

tsj5j (1159013) writes "Many users have reported loss of their GMail accounts, as they signed in to find their email accounts reset — losing years of email history. This appears to be a result of a bug which treats existing owners as new users. For those affected, Google is currently trying to resolve the problem. For the rest of us, perhaps this is a timely reminder to backup our data and be less trusting of the cloud."

Might as well call it "vapor" (as in vaporware).
