Apple’s new status page Posted on Thursday, December 13th, 2012 at 1:19 pm. PTWritten by Jim Dalrymple A new page from Apple that updates users on the status of its services, stores and iCloud. Canucker Excellent – and ever more important as more services rely on the cloud. Shouldn’t be long before someone condenses this into an app and/or desktop widget…. matthewmaurice Oh, I’m pretty sure Eddie Cue has this in a dashboard he has up all the time. Canucker Probably linked via a USB cable to his scrotum! Somebody gonna pay for that outage! Scott Clitheroe Stats don’t lie. Since this reporting tool went live, 2 out of 3 days have had outages to one or more services. Good job Apple. matthewmaurice Are we looking at Eddie Cue’s first act as Services Chief? Zack Katz Nice: the status is available via a JSON API: http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/data/system_status_en_US.jsIt also works with different countries: http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/data/system_status_fr_FR.js – France http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/data/system_status_de_DE.js – Germany Zack Katz I created https://twitter.com/iOutage , which will send tweets within 5 minutes of an outage.
