@guy: He's mocking the whole "brazilian stereotype" that people use to know, like "trees, pineapples, sun, soccer, Rio", things that usually "defines" our country.

Wrong, it's really Vault 10.... but it's the weirdest vault cause it's in Jamaica....and above ground... so it's not really a vault, more like a nuclear tropical resort.

There is a free program to backup your inbox and sent mail from Gmail, it might take 1-2 hours to download (based on your connection speed) but its a good idea to archive your emails.

Is Jo mocking his bralizian nationality or does he really wear football shirts and has a pineapple wallpaper?

As a suggestion for the future, download and install THunderbird, link up your Gmail account to it (the account setup will handle the connection info) and set to download the emails automatically. (tools>Account Settings>"account address">Synchronization & Storage)

For years I've had an automatic "forwards a copy to nominated Email address" setup for my Gmail account. (I got mine when you had to get a "gmail invite")...

I've always been dubious of "bureau services" - even with their fancy schmancy modern name "cloud computing". I make my OWN backups..

also, we dont ride on lianas to go to school, there are no alligators living in the sewers,we dont live on top of trees, not all of us dance samba and/or pagode... the guy who draws this definitely wanted to stereotype, which I think it was just awesome :D

well, black people are mostly common around Rio de Janeiro and much less common in the northern (which are more similar to south american indians)and southern (which had more influence of europeans like italians and germans)...

Uck, Photobucket did this to me once. Logged on, everything's GONE. Wasn't a happy camper, and PB says they don't know what caused it. Luckily I still had everything on my computer but I had to dig through lots of old files for the stuff. Haven't used PB since.

Guys, guys we didn't see jo's legs.
For all we known he has pink(purple?) tentacles for legs and went to that conference only as his feet to fool the masses. Jo's the result when creatures from east hit up to get Brazil. They leave half man half tentacle spawns wondering where mommy or daddy go.

This is just the tip of the iceberg of horrible google idiocy.
GOOGLE is forcing people to MUST HAVE a google account to link with every youtube account.
NO choice no freedom just "fuck you go link all your personal info to the net so we can stalk you and everything you do".

... and people's blind trust in it by not making local copies of important data that is a recent event. And are you really saying it's okay for GOOGLE to lose half a million accounts of mail because they're new to this?
Software2

@Deject
Oh, so Jo didn't lose his email then because it wasn't the cloud, but a mechanic of the cloud that failed. Glad to see he has his email still... >.>

The actual mechanics of decentralized storage and processing have been around for decades. It's only the buzzword "cloud computing"...

I don't think your account was hacked, as you've shown the google dashboard. Google apparently accidentally reset the accounts of 500,000 people. Sorry, but great comic!

That is aside from the mentioning of a hacked account. I can't figure out any reason for a hacker to delete emails, if anything, they would try to hide that they used it and printing or forwarding copies to a temp account instead would make more sense. Not as if they can vendor it for more GOLDZ.

@software2
"Clouds" are a work in progress, they haven't been around for a long time so not stable in implementation and features. Also computing clouds work by creating multiple copies of the same data. It was not the cloud that lost data, but the program to create or manage accounts that lost it.

This is what happens when you trust the "cloud" to handle your data. Always make local backups.

Remember guys most of the big cities in Brazil are very multicultural, you get red pussy, white pussy, brown pussy, dark brown pussy, black pussy, indigenous pussy, yellow pussy, and a mixture of all of those... pussy.
Want proof just watch Brazilian porn like Menage a Trois or Riorgy.
