Wow, you would think all the services (icloud, imessage, itunes) would be independent on one another to prevent something like this happening.

Huge ******* up.

Hahaha. Let's hope not. We've all seen how "quickly" Apple responds to security threats on OS X...sometimes weeks before a fix. Of course this outage will be fixed quick...how will people buy Apps and buy Apple items from the iPhone Apple Store App...when the dollar is on the line you're damn right Apple will have it fixed.

Anyways all is up and running here in Philadelphia.

making stuff was more expensive and you had all kinds of repair shops because people fixed their things. today people just buy new. its cheaper and you get a newer product with more/better features
Point taken. Though extremely depressing. Buy, Replace, Replace, Replace.

Apple is doing it right IMO. I've got a G5 Tower for late 2004 that my Dad is still using today. Yeah he only uses it for email and the internet, but the fact that is has not had a single hick-up in almost 8 years? Those are the products I am going to buy. Not going to spend less, and repeat that cycle till you've exceeded the cost of a high quality product.

i like apple, but i bought my father in law a $300 toshiba laptop. very well built and will probably last a long time as well. only reason i like MBP's is they are something nice to treat yourself. otherwise they don't do anything more than a cheaper laptop will do, except for gaming

Nothing like a minor (temporary) service interruption to bring out the Applehaters; conspiracy theorists; neo-Luddites; and cranks.

Being without electricity or water for a couple of days is a problem. Not being able to stream Call Me Maybe from your iCloud account for a couple of hours? Not so much.

that's why there's something called file caching

Kind of reminds me of the original iphone before there were apps and everything was "Web" based. I couldn't go into a grocery store and check my shopping list because of no coverage in the store.

You just know sooner of later it's all going to go pear shaped.

The difference is, when it goes wrong, BOY will it go wrong.

Thank Heavens I Didn't switch from MobileMe - YET

If this is what I have to look forward to in 10 Days, Whoa Is Me. Like others have said in this post I use this every hour of every day and can't afford to have mail as well as all it's other services down for more than a half hour. With a server farm that big they should have redundancy of redundancy both in hardware and with their data pipe sources. THe MobileMe Clock is ticking PLEASE Apple give me the warm fuzzies about making the switch. I bought a new MBA last Monday so my hardware is compatible and I'm moving my web sites and Public folders as I write, so I'm making preparations on my end. How about you Apple!!!

Are you suggesting that people should wait for a "permanent" interruption? This might take a while

Everything Apple has been dead as a doornail for about 2 hours.

Seems to be coming back now - though still slow.

It may be trivial from a life view perspective, but if you've stored something on the cloud that you need for a meeting and can't retrieve it-- then in the short term you are going to be very stressed. It's unlikely a company is going out of business, but what about my individual concerns? They don't matter?

I'm talking about cloud computing in general now--not specifically iCloud. I'm concerned that many device makers are just assuming everyone will work from the cloud and so we are seeing devices with 4GB of capacity.

This makes people not only reliant upon buggy cloud services (as has been demonstrated today) but sometimes forces the person to also rely on capped, expensive data consumption. If you're away from home how does it make sense to spend $20 in data to stream a movie you've already paid for?

Local storage is the most simple and reliable solution. There is a place for cloud services, but it is in addition to and not a replacement of local storage.

If Apple are to focus the new 'digital hub' as the cloud, It'd be nice if they made it reliable first.
