Amazon is down. What?
Don’t look now (well, you can if you want,) but the biggest online retailer in the universe, Amazon, is currently down. Apparently, they’ve been gone for about an hour and a half at this point. Visiting the site results in the cryptic “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” message. That’s never good. We actually had something we wanted to purchase with overnight shipping, and if they don’t make it back online, it looks like we will be out of luck. Oh well, I guess we can use competing sites. Don’t forget, in your time of need, you can always use a Newegg promo code to save some cash. Especially while Amazon is having trouble.
Did you know that for every minute of downtime suffered, Amazon is losing out on roughly $31,000.00 USD in sales?
EDIT: Okay, looks like they’re back.
