I did not see anybody commenting here about the outages of some google apps including gmail, then instagram, WhatsApp, and now icloud all in the past few hours. It is getting too scaringly weird and definitely not as innocent as many respected news sites make it out. DDoS attacks have been blamed but I think that the answer might be more complex than that, as I would think that those sites/services would have a number of methods to prevent or at least minimise those events. techcrunch.com/2019/03/14/apples-icloud-is-having-an-outage-too/

Side note: in the sidebar of the article you linked to was an advert for a conference called “Disrupt”. Eerie!
Interesting! I have ABP installed so I normally see no adds. I still find it very strange that the outages are yet to be explained.

Easy. Facebook, Google and Apple all had simple server configuration issues in the same week because their IT departments haven’t been doing this for years, so still make silly mistakes when doing routine maintenance.
No connection between the events at all.
