In what has become a public outrage, Facebook officially went down for around 30 minutes on the 16th due to a leak of internal prototypes that ended up going public.

Yahoo Layoffs »

As a result of a lack of growth in recent months, Yahoo! has decided to lay off at least 600 to 700 employees. With a total of 14,000 employees it is certainly not a huge number but still significant enough to mean something for the lives of those who are being let go and around the holiday season no less.

Apparently the search engine company had been planning the cutbacks for some time due to the fact that they were not expanding at the rate they hoped and that keeping on more people than necessary would ultimately drain their profits.
