Apple must be doing serious maintenance for there to be this many outages. Come on - get with it! Looks like the deterrent of Jobs instantly and publicly firing you if your product broke was a good thing - maybe Tim Cooke should bring it back.

Is that just a sneaky way of saying, "Steve would never have allowed this"?

But you are right, Steve's "scariness" seemed to keep people from letting these kinds of problems.

Maybe it would be smarter to make a widget for the site that shows any Apple services that are currently down. That makes more sense than making a story and shorty after updating it with "Resolved."

Damn. The old search view in the App Store is back. Just a bug, I guess. Weird.
