Red faces in Redmond: MSN Search down for four hours

Posted by David Hunter at 4:56 PM ET.

MSN Search, the third most popular Web search site, was unavailable for four hours today:

Microsoft spokesman Justin Osmer said in an e-mail that the company was still trying to determine what went wrong.

During the outage, which began about 8:30 a.m. and was being restored as of about 12:15 p.m. (Redmond time – ed.), users who tried to find Web pages were told the service was unavailable and that, “Our team is working to restore service as quickly as possible.”

Hey, stuff happens; but it doesn’t look good when your aspiration is to be number one. Todd Bishop asks, “What would happen to the world if Google were down for four hours?”
