Amazon’s Kindle Store Went Down Today

Did you see it? The Kindle store actually went down today!

There were lots of unhappy potential e-book readers this morning when an outage caused most titles in the Kindle store to go down for while today. They were back up and running by about 11 Am Central, but by that time, there was a lot of uproar around the web about it!

Fortunately for Amazon, this did not affect the release of the new digital Harry Potter books, which according to CNET actually redirect to another store for the sales.

While Amazon has not come out with a statement about the outage, I actually see this as a good sign for Amazon. The fact that an outage in the Kindle store caused such an outrage on the web means that they continue to grow in popularity as the e-book behemoth on the web.
