(Amazon, Facebook, Apple... that I know of, so far)
have been affected, on the same day.
I have been losing google docs intermittenly all day (and I have been working nearly exclusively in google docs all day) maybe just me, but I have been unable to upload photos (same one as yesterday to gdocs) and from drive/docs dash I would lose connectivity and have sever lag loading up a doc I just worked in. Had to close browser several times.
Can you clarify a bit? I'm not sure what you mean.
An ISP isn't, by law, required to peer with anyone.
They're legally required to live up to the claims of their product. If they say X Mbit/s then there needs to be at least a plausible case made that they can achieve those results. Anything significantly less is to invite a class-action lawsuit.
The downvotes probably came from people tired of the joke. It is an oft-repeated joke.
Edit: I take that back, Apple uses several cloud providers, including AWS.
With a little grep-fu you could have yourself a good watchdog.
You did hear that from me, or anyone else with a firewall running on OS X.
They're a massive company. When you already own telecom networks and run your own datacenters, selling cloud infrastructure services isn't too far fetched.
Actually that's not saying much, because a single cabinet is around a metric ton.
So it was unintentionally accurate.

On a serious note, why would AWS admit that it's services were not quite working well and subject itself to potential liabilities.
AWS reacts shamelessly even when your EC2 instance goes down on it's own. For a sample of how they react, see https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=11822298
Holy shit, you were laughing for 28 minutes straight. Are you alright?
