Is is just me or has Apple had a cluster of server service interruptions recently. I want to think that it’s related to a big upgrade at WWDC in a couple of weeks.

I’m not sure about a big upgrade at WWDC.

But I do expect that several people will have new-found options for alternative employment starting this morning.

And yesterday afternoon, during this same period for 3 or so hours, I kept getting apologies from Facebook (on my iPhone’s Safari browser) because all FB pages were inaccessible due to some problems they promised to fix shortly.

How many other coincidental server problems were there in the www?

Interesting. I wonder if the actual failure was at one of the providers? Such as AWS or the like? DDoS attack on one of them maybe??
