Amazon Ec2 problems should remind us that just because someone else is managing your infrastructure doesn't mean they are actually managing it. Our Netflix didn't work last night... Clearly they are not deployed in a carrier grade way? Or maybe they bet too heavily on some critical components from amazon. For big apps like Netflix I don't understand the cloud economics. I have priced transport out, and owning your own infrastructure wins hands down for streaming/ VoIP apps with any kind of volume. Pathans if you are a startup with no infrastructure experience and you are just getting going it makes sense? But Netflix don't they push some double digit percentage of US domestic bandwidth? Perhaps all that is in CDNs with Akamai and Level(3) and not on S3. Maybe someone else has better insight.

I am almost shocked to say that I like Android again.

I have to admit that for the past year my Samsung / T-Mobile Vibrant (aka one of the original Galaxy S phones) had become second fiddle to my iPhone.  The Vibrant did so many things poorly... GPS never worked correctly, the device was painfully slow even after re-flashing the firmware, and android 2.1 or whatever it runs now was outdated and tired.  The iPhone was nice, fast, reliable, usable.

The new Samsung Galaxy S III (3) is really amazing.  Finally using a up to date (well already outdated) but closer to up to date OS is quite nice.  The screen is huge, beautiful, but the phone is not huge.  The rest of the phone somehow fits around the giant screen.  Everything is responsive on the phone, the Camera is stunningly fast to start up and has zero shutter lag.  I haven't even really explored all the features yet, or figured out how I want to customize things, but I think Android is finally back in my pocket as something other than a dumb phone.

Now if Only Samsung would keep the phone updated to within a few months of the latest Android release... But Android Fragmentation this is a problem bigger than Samsung.

Anyone else have a similar experience?
