With Susan Boyle out of the way, the internet seems to be returning quite happily to its world of things going wrong and people who complain about it. Too cynical? Check the facts:

1) Twitter scheduled a planned outage for updates. And you know what? We were cool with that since they gave us the pretty rad notification emails – now with actual details about new followers! And fiber!

But when the outage was lifted and the new restrictions on how @user messages are viewed became clear…well…let’s just say that people were not impressed. On the plus side, they came up with rather creative solutions

2) If a Twitter-free world weren’t frightening enough, imagine Google leaving us without instant knowledge! Scary, right? Oh wait – that TOTALLY happened. What’s this world coming to?
