I haven’t yet panicked, but this occurred during a time when I was traveling, and spending time in airports and various other places where finding something on Twitter on the iPad and wanting to save it for later would be incredibly useful. That’s what Pocket is for, that’s why I use it.
Unfortunately, those same services that we find very, very useful, and come to rely upon, can create quite a bit of havoc when they are not working, as we see in this article! Think about it, how would you react if you couldn’t see your notes in Evernote, or couldn’t bring up your itinerary in the Tripit app? What’s the backup strategy for your important information? Do you keep it in two different services? Do you print it?
How do you avoid getting burned when a service is unavailable?
