Brilliant backup service with a fatal flaw

SocialSafe, The Social Media Back-Up Tool, Raises $400K To Out-Archive Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn

Socialsafe is providing a fantastic service for anyone conscious that they might like to actually find that tweet or post about when their child's first tooth was. Especially when said child gets old enough to ask about things like that (typically when they have kids, so ask yourself how soon you want that to be...)

However I do have one major beef with it - the client is written in Adobe Air - which might not mean alot to most people. But this is a language / framework that has already begun to be deprecated (ie killed but in a progressive slow fashion) by its only maintainer Adobe.  So I have to question - why would you backup your social life using a tool that's already dead?
