On my birthday last year I've received an iPhone as gift. I am so thrilled even with the simple thought of being part of iPhone-user community (the phone is not new and is locked). Since a year has passed, I thought why not drop down a few thought.
As iPhone becomes part of my daily workflow, I become more aware of backing up my personal data which is being "lock-in" with the phone itself. It is increasingly apparent that there is an attached condition of being iPhone community, that is, all my data almost have to stay within the walled-garden of Apple brand.
The garden is certainly not a bad place to be, for now. But I wish the decision is come from me.
