This morning I found myself reading the Washington Post online and stumbling across how Apple's website actually went dark last night. Personally, I didn't notice. But according to MG Siegler of Tech Crunch in a piece carried by the Post, a "big boy" crashed last night.
No, I'm not talking about the Apple Store being taken down for its routine maintenance. I'm talking about the entire site being down, returning a "Http/1.1 Service Unavailable" error for about 15 minutes now.
Well, that didn't happen. But it certainly is making people wonder what's up.
That's fairly crazy, and likely points to a an original source server error not on Akamai's end. But still, you'd think Akamai would have have a cache to serve rather than an error.
Let's break out those conspiracy theories. I blame Twitter.
Of course, if you think I'm wrong, please weigh in on the matter and let us know why you think differently.
