A bad night: Netflix and Instagram go down amid Amazon Web Services outage
I hope everyone had a great Friday movie night and was able to watch what they wanted to. I enjoyed watching The Artist on Blu-ray without interruption...
Friday night movie? Don't plan on Netflix to watch it — the service has gone down harder than an aborted Qwikster launch across wide swaths of the country. Twitter's awash with complaints, the main website is down as of this writing, and that's not even the worst part. The worst part is that, right now, you can neither post an image of your busted Netflix app on Instagram nor look at your friends' filtered photos while you wait for Netflix to come back online. Guess it's time to head to Pinterest — except it's out too. It's all thanks to an Amazon Cloud outage, says VentureBeat. The AWS health dashboard has details on the various storm-related "Power Issues" at some locations in "N. Virginia," if you want to watch the play-by-play.

If things like this happen more often it may get some people some reservations about dropping cable or sat altogether from Netflix. With Netflix if it goes down its not just a local cable outage, its noticed around a large part of the country..
