Apple "It's now been almost three full days. I don't know anything about their infrastructure, but for a web service to be down this long with so little communication, most 'maintenance' or migration theories become very unlikely." Downtime is normally just part of life, but three full days? There's something going on.

AFAIK, Canonical IS NOT A Quoted Company on the NYSE etc.

Apple inc is and that brings a whole different set of financial responsibilities.

What may have applied to Canonical may not apply to Apple.

For one thing, people are more likely to sue Apple than Canonical simply because Apple have more money in the bank.

That said, I can't see why it could not have been brought back up with ALL Logins disabled.

Perhaps you got it backwards? Apple's status as a publicly traded corporation means they should have been far quicker and forthcoming in relying news about this incident.

And that has relevance how? Regardless what kind of companies Canonical and Apples are, they still have the same responsibilities.
