Google Inc.: YouTube Outage Not Result of Attack

An outage of on Thursday was technical and not caused by outside tampering, according to owner Google Inc.

“YouTube is up again following a technical issue which has now been resolved,” a Google representative said in a written statement. “We know how important YouTube is for people and apologize for any inconvenience the downtime may have caused.”

The outage on the popular video web site apparently lasted from about 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. (ET).  Internet users were reportedly able to access individual videos, but the main page had an error message.

A YouTube source said the outage was not the result of any kind of attack or related in any way to Google’s recent move to stop censoring results in China, according to a CNN report.  Since it came just a few days after Google’s announcement about the censoring, the outage prompted speculation on the Internet.

      Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    3. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue with your site in internet explorer, may check this… IE still is the market leader and a huge part of other people will leave out your fantastic writing due to this problem.

      I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    5. These pumps will serve you the same function in a much less price

    6. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
