A disappointed three year old with an iPod touch and the Netflix app prompted me to head on over to the Netflix website — and low and behold — they are down. Bummer. Anyway, if you check out the site as of now you will greeted with the dreaded reminder that the ‘cloud’ is not always as perfect as we hope it is. The message reads as follows;
“We’re sorry, the Netflix website and the ability to instantly watch movies are both temporarily unavailable.”
But rest assured, they also note that “engineers are working hard to bring the site and ability to watch instantly back up as soon as possible.” Lets just hope soon really means soon because an angry three year old without the ability to watch Netflix on her iPod touch is not a fun way to spend an evening.
