5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Register spies are everywhere, including Club Med in Ibiza. And they dish the dirt (disappointingly little in this case). But it just goes to show that you cannot be too careful when you are playing away, so to speak, as this report shows.

Club Med, Ibiza. Halfway through last week, among the babies and children, emerged well over 300 of Yahoo!'s finest European staff with the usual US contingent for a three day company conference to hear the Gospel according to the new CEO. Yes, several fell
fully clothed into the water during the morning ritual "Sundance" by the pool - perhaps praying for improved advertising revenues?

The ears were flapping in the breaks but believe me there was nothing to be heard but people in huddles in the corners of the restaurants bitching about their management, seemingly making up their conference speeches as they went along. In one section I think the US management would have managed to insult
virtually every European nation in turn...scratching for witticisms for countries they had hardly heard of over lunch, in preparation for the afternoon's session..."Gee, what's Denmark famous for...don't they have a
mermaid or something...I know, Hamlet...! That's a great idea..."

Summing up their interesting times and collective job prospects one commented to another, "the next two months will be real interesting". Their evening jamboree finale was a Eurovision Song Contest spoof under Club Med's own big top tent.

No great dirt - usual clubbing til dawn, too many mobile phones by the pool, some even testing their laptops in the sunshine. Ugggh. ®
