How can Google think this is acceptable?
"We're writing to inform you about a planned service outage impacting Android Market that requires your attention.
"On Wednesday, June 15th, Google Checkout will be unavailable from approximately 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. PDT due to planned system maintenance. During this time, you will be unable to sign in to your Merchant accounts (http://checkout.google.com) and transactions will not be processed. The Android Market Developer Console (http://market.android.com/publish/) will still be available.
"During the outage, users will still be able to view paid applications on Android Market; however, any attempts at purchases will fail. No new orders will be created. After the maintenance has been completed, all normal activity will resume. No action is required on your part.
"Thank you for your patience and understanding.
"Regards, "The Android Market Team"
There are many developers out there who depend upon Android Market revenue. Google has a responsibility to ensure the reliability of this service.
