A week of downtime and outages (updated post)

We’ve had a week of downtime and outages and at first thought it was bad enough with downtime from Apples iTune app store, however things got a bit more serious as Amazon (and then Sony, see below) decided to join in on Thursday with many people complaining they couldn’t get on to various sites; Formspring, Hootsuite, Reddit, Moby,  Zynga, CEX, about.me, Paper.li, Ow.ly, ht.ly, Livefyre, co-tweet, Quora, Foursquare to name a few.   A week of downtime and outages These sites are slowly limping back on-line now after the Amazon server EC2 went down for at least three days!

Something else to worry about – Facebook Places

Last night I stayed up to watch the Facebook Event in Paulo Alto, CA, to find out about the new Places product.  Places is a new geo-location or check-in utility that enable users on mobile phones to notify friends of their current location that is initially going to be available in the US but soon to come to the UK. Its all very exciting as I love a new product especially if its free, and for grown ups setting up meetings and such like it could prove useful. However as usual I’m worried about our kids, safety and privacy. Facebook […]
