Apparently Amazon's "Cloud Services" aren't as robust as advertised, and these well-publicized outages won't help Amazon get more customers for their AWS.

What was weird after being unable to connect to Netflix through our Roku (it kept saying it couldn't find an internet connection), just for the heck of it I clicked over to Amazon Video and selected a movie at random from my watch list and connected - no problem. Apparently Amazon's cloud services worked just fine for Amazon last night.
