Friday Hangover: The Crash.


Yesterday morning, I didn’t know what my lead story was…until Amazon experienced server problems causing problems with a whole handful of sites including Reddit, Quora, Hootsuite, Aintitcoolnews,, and Foursquare to name just a few.  As a person who uses Hootsuite on a working basis, this was a giant pain that I could of lived without.  As somebody on Twitter said today, are we really ready for cloud computing?  Hmmm…makes you wonder.  In other news though the Kindle goes to the library, Google offers coupons, and your iPhone tracks your movements.
