Oy Vey! What if ... your Gmail Disappeared?

The Gmail blog informs us:
Imagine the sinking feeling of logging in to your Gmail account and finding it empty. That’s what happened to 0.02% of Gmail users yesterday, and we’re very sorry. The good news is that email was never lost and we’ve restored access for many of those affected...more...
OMG, the blog tells us that, "To protect your information from these unusual bugs, we also back it up to tape."

Say it ain't so! $200 billion dollar company Google uses tape backup? May we say, Oy Vey!
