What happened was this: Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) went down; and, instantly, Amazon clients couldn’t access all kinds of things they’d stored remotely on the company’s servers -- everything from images to customer transaction data

Now, this may not seem like a huge deal, but if you're dealing with a lot of number combinations and you accidentally type "3" instead of "4" when you're already 14 divisions into an equation, this is a game-changer
