purexplorer commented on the word anti copperfield
I came across "anti-Copperfield" for the first time today in a email from Netted by the Webbys. It read, "Backupify is the anti-Copperfield, protecting against things like "disapparating" Google Apps and preserving your Picasa pictures if you accidentally delete something you still need." I did not find much usage on the web but did get this explanation from. http://www.starkinsider.com/2010/09/fringe-festival-sanfrancisco-review-exit-theatre.html. The meaning suggesting a more basic approach as contrasted with the extravagant and embellished performances of magician David Copperfield.
