Amazon goes down, market flooded with backpacking gear. on 02/01/2013 06:41:13 MST Print View


It's amusing; Amazon was down for 49 minutes on Thursday, and because the giant sells so much product, two of the best selling items seem to be backpacking-specific. They missed out on selling 400,000 pairs of Ex-Officio underwear and 700,000 mylar space blankets.

From what I read they're pretty liberal with who is allowed to update the code for the frontpage, the only requirement being that any changes that are made can be rolled back. I guess someone really screwed that one up.

It turns out that those boxer briefs are the 7th most sold clothing item.
