    Is anybody else's iTunes store acting weird i.e. not displaying certain things as usual? If so, I was wondering if this had anything to do with the Amazon data center crash? Does Apple use their services?

    Ah! That explains a few things... I was trying to buy some stuff from Amazon last night and kept getting slow/empty pages. Thought it was my connection!

    Apple uses Akamai. It may use Amazon too but I haven't heard that.
