Amazon is Down

Machiavelli I have just finished two “dirty” politics* books and while looking for more… ;-) I have reached this lovely “Http/1.1 Service Unavailable” notice at Amazon.com and later I even got blamed** to be a bot…???

Cnet says, “Based on last quarter’s revenue of $4.13 billion, a full-scale global outage would cost Amazon more than $31,000 per minute on average(!!!)

Amazons, are you there???


* The Prince by Machiavelli & Joseph Fouché – The Portrait of a Politician by Stefan Zweig

    The prince is an amazing book that hasn’t lost any relevance in half a millennium.

    The other one I don’t know – is it any good, Moti?

    This Fouché dude is really something else…
