Amazon.com and you’re (not) done? Well, for a while today.
Amazon.com was not exactly down, but the site might as well have been. All product searches were coming up error 400, though as for 1:16 p.m. Pacific today, it appears as if the problem has been fixed.
wow, all my searches on Amazon are coming up with error code 400! wonder what’s going on there.

Realistically, however, this is not a cloud failure or a web serving error. It’s a programming or configuration error, a bad request being sent to the server. Amazon should have it fixed shortly.
