This morning, Mike posted about how Amazon is weathering their recent technical hurricane with not only an in-depth explanation of exactly what went wrong with their Amazon S3 service last weekend, but what they’re doing to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
The first blog post starts with: “Steve Jobs has asked me to write a posting every other day or so to let everyone know what’s happening with MobileMe, and I’m working directly with the MobileMe group to ensure that we keep you really up to date.”
Would be comforting if we had any idea who was posting…is it the product manager or the intern who drew the short straw? We may never know.
I know that if I was paying for a service that provided me with my mobile lifeline to my email and schedule and it was performing as poorly as MobileMe has been for many users, I wouldn’t be satisfied with an update “every other day or so,” but that’s just me.
