Yup - it’s true. Been down for about 90 minutes now. Better hit up Newegg in the meantime if you need to order anything. If you do, be sure to grab a Newegg promo code while you are at it.

Amazon is down. What?

I think you missed it by a few fractions of time, u must have checked it when andru posted this thread,
But i have a question for you, do you want to see it permanently closed or for a little time. question

Wow, I have never heard of Amazon.com having “downtime” but hey, it’s a website too. Does anyone know why it was down? I saw this on the Gear Live website and was curious to know that and I hope not too many people around the world were going crazy that Amazon.com was “offline.”

How do they calculate how much money they lose per minute?  Wouldn’t they have to take into account that some people are going to just wait until later to make their purchases?  Unless people were really impatient when they went to buy something, or like in your case they needed something the next day, I don’t see how they would lose that much in sales.  If I were a website like that, I would have multiple backup servers so that I could immediately switch over should something go haywire.  I am sure they have backup systems I just don’t know how extensive they are.

Ok i understood you sharky,
i also wanted to see a great website in the world go down , atleast once, i experienced it with tinypic when it was hacked once, and now i think andru was only person in our forum who watched it.
