Your data will thank you. Not!

I received a special invitation in my inbox today. It was sent by my dear friends at AliExpress and explained that I should backup my important data (a very good idea), preferably with a storage devices by one of their vendors (not quite such a good idea).

Given the somewhat suspect quality of the genuine Samsung gazillobyte SD cards you can buy from the Chinese website, I very much doubt that I should move years of holiday pictures to a $26.99 KingDian SSD drive.

What I am doing, on the other hand, is to backup my important data to, a zero-knowledge cloud storage platform. Hopefully, they do not get their hardware from AliExpress...
