Short Take: eBay suffers brief downtime

eBay suffered a 45-minute outage last night, its seventh downtime in two months. On its announcements board, the leading auction site blamed the outage on a "hardware failure" and said that it used its so-called hot backup system to recover. eBay suffered two unplanned downtimes in two days last month and four outages in five days in November.
