Amazon.com Goes Down

The Guardian reports that Amazon.com went down for about 2 hours last Friday in the U.S., a virtually unheard of event these days. The Millions estimates Amazon lost approximately $3.6 million in sales during the outage. I'm sure some of those sales were merely deferred rather than lost, but I bet Amazon lost a fair number of impulse purchases.

Lol I make tons of impulse buys on Amazon (although I wasn't using it when it went down-- too bad, I could have saved some money!).
