The limited beta is closed, so I guess I'll have to wait. But I signed up to be notified if a slot opens up in the future, and I saw this in the Amazon Web Services license agreement. Standard boilerplate I'm sure, but it still strikes me how little software companies are willing to warrant. It shows just how unreliable software really is.

The only thing one can hope for is that they really don't want anything bad to happen because of the impact on the perception of their services. Although I don't know how one could claim that Amazon Web Service was not giving "quiet enjoyment." :)
