Let’s start off with a story. It’s Monday morning, and Jane wakes up, begrudgingly ready to face the work week. The first thing she does, which is the first thing she always does when she wakes up, is hit snooze on her alarm.
After hitting the snooze button six to seven times, she finally turns her alarm off. She had a great weekend with friends and family and wanted to revel in the joys of her recent experiences one more time before she gets up and faces the music. But something is terribly wrong. All of her pictures, all of her videos, EVERYTHING IS GONE!
We’ll spare you the details of what happened next…they weren’t pretty. Nonetheless, Jane was extremely distraught as she thought she had lost all of her precious memories forever.
