Game over for T-Mobile’s Sidekick.

Regrettably, based on Microsoft/Danger’s latest recovery assessment of their systems, we must now inform you that personal information stored on your device – such as contacts, calendar entries, to-do lists or photos – that is no longer on your Sidekick almost certainly has been lost as a result of a server failure at Microsoft/Danger.

Having owned the Fido version of the Sidekick for a couple of years, I remember those data outages all too well — but two weeks? That’s crazy!

And losing your customers’ data is inexcusable, especially when the only way to back up the thing yourself is to buy a Windows-only app that syncs with Outlook.

And really, how many club kids Outlook?
